Smart Leakage Detection (SLD)
Smart Leakage Detection

The BSE Smart Leakage Detector (SLD) provides reliable, accurate and easy detection of all water leakages at the EAF (upper shell and / or roof).

Water leakage detection is an important safety topic, because cooling water infiltration in the EAF can cause a catastrophic explosion. 


  • The BSE Smart Leakage Detector is able to detect small water leakages (at Badische Stahlwerke down to 1,5 m³/h, 25 l/min) on a consistent basis and without maintenance
  • Measuring the cooling water in- and outlet line of the EAF shell and/or roof
  • Online analysis algorithm permanently controlling the cooling system
  • In case of a detected leakage sending of a signal to the furnace PLC and generating an alarm to the operator
  • Different alarms for various predefined leakage size
  • Database and trending tool for delay analysis and prevention
