STEEL INDUSTRY

In the steel manufacturing sector, high-pressure plunger pumps are indispensable for their high efficiency and reliability in critical applications. These pumps are designed to operate under extreme conditions, providing consistent performance with high-pressure fluid handling. Plunger pumps in the steel industry are crucial for operations such as descaling, press drive mechanisms, and hydrostatic bearing lubrication.

Applications of Plunger Pumps in the Steel Industry

- Descaling Processes: Plunger pumps are pivotal in the descaling of steel, where high-pressure water jets are utilized to remove scale - iron oxide formations - from the steel surface during production. This process is vital for maintaining the surface quality of steel and preventing defects. Plunger pumps generate pressures typically ranging from 100 to 400 bar, facilitating effective scale removal through high-pressure water jetting. This method is preferred for its efficiency and cost-effectiveness compared to mechanical descaling methods like grinding or pickling.

- Hydrostatic Bearing Lubrication: The role of plunger pumps in hydrostatic bearing lubrication is to supply a continuous stream of pressurized lubricant to bearings, reducing metal-to-metal contact and thus minimizing wear and tear. This application demands precise control over the pressure and flow rate, as consistent lubrication under high pressure is critical to the bearings' operational reliability and longevity in rolling mills.

- Press Drive Applications: High-pressure plunger pumps are also essential in driving hydraulic presses used in metal forming. These pumps provide the necessary pressure to operate presses that mold, shape, or cut steel components. The pumps are tailored to deliver high pressures up to 1,000 bar, enabling them to meet the demands of various press applications in the steel industry.
