MTM

MOULD THERMAL MONITORING


The mould is the most important section of a caster, where liquid steel forms a solid shell. An incorrect growth of the shell can cause a sticker, which leads to a breakout of the strand. This results in downtime of the caster and extensive repair work. The MTM system performs real-time monitoring  of mould walls by means of a matrix of high- precision k-type thermocouples.


NEEDS

  • Reduce sticking number and breakout risk
  • Optimize casting process

ADVANTAGES

  • Three rows of thermocouples
  • Real time mould thermal monitoring
  • Post-processing analysis
