MPF

AUTOMATIC MOULD POWDER
FEEDERSYSTEM FOR BILLET,
BLOOM AND SLAB CASTERS

MPF

Maintain the powder thickness constant in the mould is a very important task to avoid level fluctuation and to improve steel quality keeping constant the heat transfer, the lubricating powder film and also increasing the surface quality. Automatic Mould Powder Feeding system – MPF is a device designed for CCM with protected pouring in which it is necessary to automate the powder feeding on the liquid pool into the mould. The automatic Mould Powder Feeding system – MPF is designed to work for any casting section and casting format (billets, blooms and slab).

NEEDS

  • Surface product quality enhancement
  • Powder entrapment risk reduction
  • The personnel on the casting floor reduction
  • The powder feeding system automation
  • Uniform powder distribution in the mould

ADVANTAGE

  • Constant powder thickness in the mould
  • Constant liquid level in the mould avoiding level fluctuations
  • Uniform lubrication and heat transfer and enhanced surface quality
  • No dependency from operator experience
  • Reduce the risks for operators and to increase their safety
  • Process repeatability
  • Improve the productivity and the quality of the steel reducing the breakout risk
