Today’s global market demands steel producers to roll top quality products faster and more efficiently. The high-speed rolling environment at high finishing block speeds can create performance and maintenance issues for the laying head equipment.
The key to success in today’s high-speed rod rolling mills is to modernize existing equipment with new technology that will streamline costs. These modernizations can provide consistent operations at higher speeds, less maintenance, reduced downtime, extended component life and less need for operator intervention.
As finishing block speeds have risen to 120 m/s and beyond, the expectation is that this is just the beginning of a continuous growth spurt to meet today’s competitive demand for superior quality products. But the high-speed environment creates performance and maintenance issues for the laying head equipment that industry technologists are working to address. Of all the high-speed equipment, the laying head is specifically plagued by many performance problems such as complicated pipe changes, difficult head, and tail end control, wear and tear of the split ring, a lot of noise and vibration and leaking labyrinth seals.
Russula has patented a laying head design that reduces maintenance downtime, noise and power consumption and extends the life of the equipment.
The patented technology involves reconfiguring the laying head equipment to reduce power and noise levels, minimize the wear and tear on expensive parts such as the split ring and eliminate costly spiral bevel gears. The new, simplified design keeps mills running longer and improves operating conditions.
