Increasing the Efficiency of Cold Mill Stands

Reliability and efficiency are key components in the cold mill process. When a large Midwest steel supplier approached Superior Engineering with their frustrations, we were pleased to prepare and implement a comprehensive solution.

S/E was asked to investigate (3) separate cold mill stands with the goal to reduce downtime and increase productivity. One key finding was to implement an in-line, auto-backflush and self-cleaning filtration of the cold mill rolling oil solution. This required new pumps + relocations, new filters + housing foundations, the installation of new pipe routings, piping, and wiring. 

In additions to detailed construction bid packages and technical design specifications, S/E supported the project through these tasks:

  • Field investigation and field survey
  • 3D modeling of all large bore piping
  • Spool drawings
  • Stress analysis for piping
  • Project P&ID’s
  • Pipe support and platform drawings
  • Overhead trolley modifications
  • Foundation drawings
  • Electrical and MCC drawings
  • Risk assessment analysis
  • Scheduling services

 Because of the multi-discipline expertise that S/E offers, our client was able to rely on a single engineering firm to see the entire project through to completion. This peace of mind paired with our complete project management made for pleasant experience and successful solution.
