Strop (ZMA) EBT TAP Hole cleaning system concept
The STROP is an electric-actuated swiveling and hydraulic-actuated lifting device that performs
the cleaning of the EBT hole, enabling a fast and reliable operation below the furnace without any
manual operation taking place. The manipulator is a “stand alone” piece of equipment that can be
installed on the bottom shell either on the left or on the right side of the EBT tap hole.
The cleaning operation is performed either from the main control room or from a local control
box installed in a safe position, close to the EBT area. In this way, the operator will perform this
operation either in manual or automatic mode, with maximum safety.
- Remote operation from furnace control room in a safe position
- Sturdy piece of equipment that needs minimum maintenance
- Improved operators health and safety
- Direct productivity improvements
- Reduced operating costs
