Improvement of the work roll performance on the 2050 mm hot strip mill at Iscor Vanderbijlpark
This paper describes how an optimization of the rolling conditions (roll lubrication, strip chilling) and the use of new roll qualities on the 2050 mm hot strip mill at Iscor Vanderbijlpark, allowed to realize the full potential of HSS rolls. Based on development work and laboratory studies on oxidation behaviour, these improvements benefit both to Hi-Cr and HSS rolls. The full implementation of HSS in stands F1 to F4 during year 2000 will allow to increase the mill availability by eliminating the intermediate roll change and reduce the work load in the roll shop.
