  3. Application Note: Aluminum Hot Rolling Mill – Roughing/Reversing Mill
This is part 2 of the 4-part Aluminum Hot Rolling Mill application note series – be sure to check out the rest of the series!

Application Overview:

At the reversing mill, rolling speed, roll bite and coolant flow may be optimized only with a precise real-time knowledge of metal temperature. The low and highly variable non-greybody emissivity character associated with this complex aluminum process dictates the use of the most sophisticated multi-wavelength infrared pyrometers as the material converts from a coarse ingot to a smooth strip.

Williamson Wavelength Advantage:

The Williamson model MWx, designed specifically for the demanding aluminum hot reversing rolling mill application, uses the most advanced Multi-Wavelength Dynamic ESP Technology available for unequalled accuracy under all operating conditions.

Pyrometer Benefits:

  • Improved Product Properties
  • Improved Process Consistency
  • Faster Rolling Speeds
  • No need for real-time interaction with the pyrometer.

Wavelength Technology:

  • MWx Dynamic ESP Technology corrects for the non-greybody emissivity variation associated with aluminum.
    Williamson’s exclusive Dynamic ESP technology automatically corrects for variations in alloy and thickness.
