Electrotherm is now the business partner of Ergolines (Italy) for supply of Electromagnetic Stirrers (EMS) for Caster and EAF, non-radioactive automatic mould level controller and powder thickness measurement and control system.
Mould Electromagnetic Stirrer (M-EMS)
PTC / POWDER THICKNESS MEASUREMENT AND CONTROL SYSTEM FOR BILLET AND BLOOM CASTERSThe key impact of mould powders on the quality of cast steel is widely recognized. Specifically, the ability to maintain constant powder thickness and stable meniscus position is essential to cast quality steel. Mould powder thickness can be controlled through closed-loop automated powder feeding. Ergolines’ Ultrasonic Level Detector (ULD) is a new sensor dedicated to the real-time measurement of mould powder thickness. Closed-loop powder thickness control is implemented by using the ULD feedback to drive an automated powder feeding machine, leading to improved steel quality and process stability. The ULD can be used either in combination with a pre-installed radiometric sensor or with Ergolines’ OPD.
