With the benefit fierce competition in the steel industry market in recent years, double cold reduction products have been developed towards strength improvement and thickness reduction. The traditional cold-rolling lubrication process with a fixed flow rate and concentration cannot solve the problems which cover uncontrollable shape of strip product and the excessive consumption of lubricating oil. Moreover,based on the analysis of the traditional direct application lubrication system of double cold reduction, a set of design scheme suitable for the emulsion pipeline direct mixing lubrication system of double cold reduction unit is proposed.The design complete the selection of key components which include the static mixer and atomization nozzle selection, pump and oil pump design selection, pipeline design selection, flow type selection, pressure gauge selection, electronic control cabinet design selection and other aspects. Equipment of the emulsion pipeline direct mixing lubrication system of double cold reduction has been developed. Comparing with characteristics of the traditional direct aplication lubrication system, the emulsion pipeline direct mixing lubrication system was better applied to the production practice of a 1220 double cold reduction mill. The consumption of ton of steel was reduced by 9.6%. The rolling energy consumption and oil consumption comprehensive costs decreased by 10.7%, and the strip steel section thickness difference was reduced by 19.3%. In addition, the plate shape quality defect rate decreased by 25.6 %, otherwise creating a large economic benefit for the unit and promoting the application value.
