ECS: the SIME Electrode Regulation System

SIME ECS (Electrode Control System) is a fully dynamic system allowing a complete digital and automatic regulation of electrodes and a real-time diagnostic for both Electric Arc Furnaces and Ladle Furnaces.

The function of the regulation is to maintain constant the “electric” working point in order to reach the following main advantages:

  • Furnace Performances Increase;
  • Uniform Radiation;
  • Less Electrodes Wearing;
  • Operative Costs Reduction;
  • Pollutants Reductions.


SIME ECS optimizes the melting process and improves the energy use efficiency in a short pay-back period.
