Parameters for effective roll cooking
The correct application of coolant in a rolling mill is critical to achieve high quality strip and long roll life. Achieving control of roll temperature is increasing in importance as new and costly roll materials like HSS are used. Additionally, cooling rolls efficiently is necessary to minimize energy costs and also to prevent overcooling of thin slabs being delivered to the hot mill by the latest generation of thin slab casters. On top of that it helps to improve the quality of the rolled product and to increase the production capacity pf the plant.
