Positioning the burner
The Edusal I and II research developed a “swiveling” burner system that can be optimally positioned in relation to the furnace charge.
Monitorinig, controlling, evaluating
Research by ZPF GmbH and technical universities in Germany has developed a system for monitoring and controlling aluminum melting process, evaluating melting behavior in relation to the position of the gas burners. The most recent phase focused on optimizing a non-contact optical test for detecting status changes in the aluminum, from solid to molten.
