Non-wearing temperature measurement of liquid metal

KELLER MSR ITS CellaCast Fixed & Handheld

Zur Zeit sind leider keine Downloads verfügbar!Ibbenbüren-Laggenbeck, Germany — Until recently, foundries and steel mills employed measuring immersion thermometers to detect liquid metal temperature. With this method, a probe is immersed into the molten metal bath and must be replaced after every measurement.

Not only do the running costs of these consumables contribute to a plant’s operating expenses – the immersion technique has other drawbacks as well.

The accuracy of the data can vary greatly because the temperature is subject to the depth and location of the immersion.

To provide an alternative, KELLER MSR ITS engineered a stationary infrared thermometer CellaCast for detecting liquid metal temperature without contact or mechanical wear.

The system captures the molten pour stream just as the mould is being filled.

The system records a temperature for each pour and thus for each cast object.

For more flexible use Keller MSR also provides a hand-held device.
