Abstract

Recently, in metallurgy processes, cooling water control is important for controlling the mechanical properties of material. Water cooling is one of the best techniques for a hot steel plate manufacturing process because it can use a high cooling performance of boiling. In this work we conducted a numerical study about water flow control with a cooling water control machine for steel plate making. We calculated the pipe network of the cooling water supply machine with two types of (previous and new type) cooling headers using FLOWMASTER. With a cooling header replacement, such as a cooling header change and the area of cooling nozzles, we achieved the increment of cooling water capacity and cooling performance. Keywords: steel plate making, accelerated cooling machine, cooling water control.
