Iron, Steel & Metal Industry – Proven technology for safety-relevant areas

Solutions for the iron, steel & metal industry

Even though today KROHNE is a family business active all over the world, the company still has its roots in Duisburg, a city known for its steel industry. Companies such as ThyssenKrupp or the Krupp-Mannesmann smeltery now have some of the most state-of-the-art plants in the world. For years, KROHNE has been the trusted partner for anything regarding measuring technology in the iron, steel and metal industry and it has supplied the equipment for several plants in Europe, China, Korea and western Asia.

It is especially in the areas relevant to safety that plant operators put high demands on the reliability of the measuring technology. One example is the differential volume measurement in the cooling water circuits of furnaces using electromagnetic flowmeters. Traditional and yet still high-tech are the variable area flowmeters used for gas analysis on the furnaces. In addition to temperature measuring points in the high and low temperature range, several sophisticated level measuring points such as the filling of torpedo cars, iron pans and coke ovens or the monitoring of carbon, coke and ore bunkers are equipped with KROHNE devices. We offer our customers measuring technology solutions from one source, right down to analytical applications in industrial wastewater.
