The software package
COAT – Control Optimization & Analysis Tool
supports the calculation of the correct
adjustment of the slag formers in the BOF process. In addition the software allows for evaluation of the results
from various operating BOF shops. The software is easy to handle.
The software package is a joint product of Saar–Metallwerke GmbH and ISCA Prof. Louis, both located in Saarbrücken, Germany. Saar–Metall, leading expert in the production of BOF lance tips as well as of all kinds of water cooled copper fittings for iron, steel and metal making, supplied the metallurgical knowledge fundamental for the software package. ISCA Prof. Louis, a company specialized in mathematical modelling of technological processes and the development of the corresponding software contributed this know–how in the production of the software package.
