WHAT IS MILL SCALE? - Dulux Protective Coatings

WHAT IS MILL SCALE? Mill scale is often present on raw steel and is frequently mistaken for a blue-coloured primer. Mill scale is a type of iron oxide that is formed on the surface of the steel during the hot-rolling process. The very high surface temperature combined with high roller pressures result in a smooth, bluish grey surface.

Scale formation and its removal in Hot Rolling process

During hot rolling, three kinds of scales are possible: primary scale, secondary scale and tertiary scale. Primary scale is formed during reheating process of the slabs in the pusher type or walking beam furnace. Secondary scale is formed during the rolling process in the roughing mill area and

Temperature Monitoring for Hot Rolling Mills | Williamson

There are a number of interferences that can affect the steel infrared temperature sensor reading at every point along the hot rolling mill. These include water, steam, scale, misalignment, and emissivity variation. Wavelength selection is a critical choice in helping to minimize or eliminating the temperature errors due to these interferences.

Assessing the Surface Condition

When hot rolled steel leaves the rolling mill at approximately 1000ºC (1832ºF), the steel reacts with oxygen in the atmosphere as it cools, mill scale (iron oxide) is produced. This oxide is a blue-grey layer of scale that completely covers the surface of the steel.
