Adoption of Encoder with PLC based System for Stock Level Indication and Control of Blast Furnace
Mahesh Obannavar, Jayaram M V, , ,
This paper represents the design of a model based on Encoder and PLC to control the stock level (SL) indication system of a Blast
Furnace. In blast furnace the screened raw material is taken in and stored at upper level and simultaneously hot metal production is taking place
at its lower level. To know the storage level (range) of raw material in the blast furnace stock level indicators are used. The Cam-limit switches of
Drive system consist of levels to indicate ranges in blast furnace. As cam-limit switches are old and inaccurate in operation they are replaced by
the advance technology equipments encoder and PLC.
