Automation solutions for charging, pushing, transporting, and quenching
A coke oven plant is a beehive of activity, transporting and moving materials in and out of the coke oven battery on a continuous basis.
Reliable, automated motion using hydraulics is made possible by Balluff's robust magnetostrictive linear position sensors for cylinder position feedback. Rated to 100 °C, Balluff linear position sensors are built to withstand the high temperatures found around coke ovens and transport cars.
Hazardous location cylinder position sensors are agency-certified for use where combustible gases and dusts may be present. For tracking the relative positions of larry cars, pusher cars, and transfer cars at the coke oven battery, we offer our Industrial RFID. It boasts a large read/write distance, fast data transmission, high data integrity, and operates without line-of-sight contact.
Balluff's high-temperature-rated inductive sensors are specially designed to withstand the harsh conditions found in the steel industry. With high temperature ratings up to 160 °C, these rugged proxes deliver dependable position sensing and detection for charging cars, stamping stations, pusher machines, and transfer machines. Their ability to perform despite the heat increases the availability of your systems while reducing maintenance expenses.
Electrical equipment installed areas where combustible gases are present - or could be present - must conform to safety code requirements for classified hazardous locations. Balluff offers a variety of globally-certified, hazardous-location linear position sensors for use in hydraulic, pneumatic, or electrically-operated combustion gas valves actuators.
Balluff magnetostrictive linear position sensors with enhanced temperature ratings (up to 100 °C) are specifically designed for applications in hot environments, such as those found around the coke oven battery.
Balluff industrial RFID systems track the locations larry cars, pusher cars, and transfer cars at the coke oven battery for enhanced asset utilization and efficiency. Non-volatile data/memory carriers are installed on the cars and are queried along the route by any number of stationary read/write systems for on-the-fly exchange of data and identification of individual car location and status.
