2. Rolled in Scale (RIS)
Different types of RIS
Primary Scales due to Poor Descaling
Primary Scales due to High Temperature
Secondary Scales due to Poor Descaling
Secondary Scales (Drag / Comet type) from Coil Box.
Tertiary Scales due to Roll Roughness ( Salt & Pepper /Banded type).
Silicon / Red Scales (Tiger Scale)
Steps to control RIS
Cleaning off loose scales from slab surface
Avoiding overheating of slab surface
Drop out temp.
Descaling impression test
Use of scale master nozzle & use of optimum height betweenthe strip and the nozzle tip.
Coil box by-pass
Roll cooling and roll bite lubrication
Proper scheduling of surface critical grades.
Damage of surface from apron plate.
Use of interstand descaler
