To compete in the steel commodities market, steel manufacturers use descaling processing on the steel slab to create the best surface finish. The descaling process must perform at its best throughout the total length of the product to ensure superior surface quality. This puts the following demands on the descaling system:
- Create the best descale impingement with the least amount of water
- Deliver the highest pressure possible to the descale headers; maintain this pressure throughout the strip length
- Work with raw descale water
