Real-Time Indicators in Smelting Furnaces

In this 2022, we participated in a project with one of our customers in the Automotive Battery Recycling Industry. The objective of this project was to monitor in Real Time the performance of the smelting furnaces.

For this project we used the AVEVA EDGE software for the monitoring of the variables and the creation of real-time process indicators of each furnace. Reports were also developed in Excel using a SQL database and SCRIPT code for calculations of indicator per day and by casting of each furnace.

In addition, a monitor was installed in the operators’ room to display indicators, trends and alarms in Real Time for each of their furnaces.
