PTC

POWDER THICKNESS MEASUREMENT AND CONTROL SYSTEM FOR BILLET AND BLOOM CASTERS

PTC

Powder feeding is therefore a priority to ensure the stability of the powder level and the quality of steel.The primary task to implement this automatism is the measuring of powder thickness on the liquid bath in real time. In combination with one radioactive level sensor or optical system, acting as main level control device, the PTC system can guarantee the powder thickness control on billet and bloom casters.

NEEDS

  • Surface product quality enhancement
  • Powder entrapment risk reduction
  • Powder feeding system automation

ADVANTAGES

  • Keep powder level constant in the mould
  • Inclusions reduction
  • Uniform heat exchange in the mould
  • Process repeatability
  • It avoid the presence of an operator to control the powder level in the mould
