Modern Hot Strip Production Modern Hot Strip Production

Michael Degner
This book contains contributions and references to the quality improvement, to the increase of plant availability and the yield, to the conservation of resources during production, as well as to automation, control and metallurgical plant concepts in the rolling of hot strip. There are published summaries of technical papers presented at international conferences and published results of papers and patents.

Build Up or Ridges: Hot Strip Mill Operations, Volume IV Build Up or Ridges: Hot Strip Mill Operations, Volume IV

David T. Blazevic
In this fourth volume of Hot Strip Mill Operations, the primary objectives are to separate localized shape distortions, such as buildup, from general shape problems, and to explain how buildup goes through the hot strip and cold strip mills. This book shows that the basic causes of buildup are uneven roll cooling and roll heating, giving operators the opportunity to concentrate their efforts in the right direction to control shape distortions.

Roll Cooling, Rolling Problems and Shape: Hot Strip Mill Operations, Volume II Roll Cooling, Rolling Problems and Shape: Hot Strip Mill Operations, Volume II

David T. Blazevic
The second volume of Hot Strip Mill Operations is aimed at one primary objective: roll cooling is for shape and has little to do with roll wear. The demands of operators, roll manufacturers, and mill builders for low roll wear, prevention of roll breakage, good shape, minimizing fire cracking and surface appearance are all inclusive in roll cooling on a hot strip mill.

Shape, Profile and Crossbow: Hot Strip Mill Operations, Volume IX Shape, Profile and Crossbow: Hot Strip Mill Operations, Volume IX

David T. Blazevic
The ninth volume of the series defines strip shape and profile, distinguishes between roll stack bending and the effects of the thermal crowns and roll wear on the shape and profiles, and explains how each aspect affects the other. Achieving these objectives will allow hot mill operators to concentrate their efforts on the critical aspects of the rolling practices to eliminate many types of shape and profile problems, to reduce the shape and profile problems for their customers, and to enhance the consistency of the shape and profile quality produced on hot strip and plate mills.

Roll Wear, Broken Rolls and Roll Life: Hot Strip Mill Operations, Volume III Roll Wear, Broken Rolls and Roll Life: Hot Strip Mill Operations, Volume III

David T. Blazevic
The third volume of Hot Strip Mill Operations looks at the basic causes of roll wear to guide operators away from roll cooling myths of pressure, volume or impact angles helping to reduce roll wear. Continuing the theme of the second volume (Roll Cooling, Rolling Problems and Shape) that roll cooling has little to do with roll wear, the third volume’s additional objective is the understanding of roll wear.

Scale, Hot Strip Mill Operations, Vol. V Scale, Hot Strip Mill Operations, Vol. V

David T. Blazevic
Scale has two main objectives: understanding of scale formation and scale growth; and developing empirical scale growth formulas. The book examines the nature of the quality problems caused by scale, and includes trial calculations for furnace scale, secondary scale and tertiary scale.

Passlines, Strippers and Sideguides: Hot Strip Mill Operations, Volume X Passlines, Strippers and Sideguides: Hot Strip Mill Operations, Volume X

The final installment of Hot Strip Mill Operations was written to address the lack of information and knowledge about the passline’s function in a rolling mill. Specifically, the book defines the mill’s passline and its function; analyzes and shows how the top and bottom strippers and plates should be designed and controlled; suggests a change in thinking from sideguides to a strip guiding system for the slabs and strips; and comments on loopers and table rolls.

Rolled In Scale: Hot Strip Mill Operations, Volume VII Rolled In Scale: Hot Strip Mill Operations, Volume VII

David T. Blazevic
Rolled-in scale is the most interesting problem encountered on hot rolling mills. This volume has the following objectives: to identify rolled-in scale defects and their potential source, and to provide solutions for each type of rolled-in scale. Rolled In Scale concentrates on hot strip and plate mill operating practices, but much of the material applies to structural, bar and pipe mills.

Reheat Furnace Practices: Hot Strip Mill Operations, Volume VIII Reheat Furnace Practices: Hot Strip Mill Operations, Volume VIII

David T. Blazevic
Reheat Furnace Practices has three objectives: separating the furnace engineering and operating practices, defining the functions of the furnace to produce a higher surface quality on plates or coils, and explaining the connection with rolled-in scale. Accomplishing these goals will allow hot mill operators to concentrate their efforts on the critical aspects of reheat furnace practices to eliminate some types of rolled-in scale, reduce scale growth to minimize costs, and enhance the surface and microstructural quality produced on hot strip and plate mills.

Coiling: Hot Strip Mill Operations, Volume I Coiling: Hot Strip Mill Operations, Volume I

David T. Blazevic
The completely revised first volume of the Hot Strip Mill Operations series has three main objectives: to reconfigure the original book to explain coiling principles, to provide an update in some new variations for coiling, and finally, to change the concept in understanding the physics of coiling.

Descaling: Hot Strip Mill Operations,  Volume VI Descaling: Hot Strip Mill Operations, Volume VI

David T. Blazevic
Descaling centers on the explanation of the variations of descaling and descaling systems, understanding descaling forces and the principles of descaling designs. This will allow operators to concentrate their efforts in relation to scale growth control, eliminate rolled-in scale, and further enhance the surface quality produced on hot strip and plate mills.
