How to Achieve Optimum Strip Dryness – Preventing Coolant Carryover in Aluminum Cold Rolling

In a market where exceptional product quality is increasingly critical, keeping operating costs under control is paramount, and minimizing the environmental impact of operations is vital, it is essential that aluminum flat rollers have all the tools at their disposal to maximize plant performance. In this webinar we will look at one of the oldest and most diverse problems within aluminum cold rolling, that of ‘coolant carryover’. And the subsequent impact wet strip from the exit of the cold mill has on product yield, quality and process inefficiencies. Based on current reference examples, solutions for achieving optimal strip dryness and particularly strip edge dryness will be presented that enable maximum yields to be achieved, reductions in harmful emissions and enhanced quality as a means of differentiation.

Target audience:

  • Mill Managers, Plant Managers, Operations Managers
  • Maintenance Managers
  • Technology Managers, R&D Managers
  • Procurement Managers, Investment Managers
  • Client Project Managers

Key takeaways:

  • Understand what strip dryness is in the context of aluminum cold rolling
  • Learn how to improve strip edge dryness for maximum yield across the full product range
  • Improve environmental credentials by reducing harmful emissions
  • Identify opportunities to achieve significant cost savings through coolant recycling
