Sensors for Continuous Casting

Continuous Casting Application

The Need

Continuous casting utilizes tapered molds to account for shrinkage as the molten metals cool. Inclinometer sensors are crucial for ensuring the proper alignment and stability of the caster equipment.

The Challenge

The challenge with continuous casting is the fact that it is essential to monitor the taper to ensure that the mounting angle is accurate, otherwise, a break-out may occur.

T935 Series inclinometers

The Solution

Sherborne’s rugged Inclinometer is ideal for taper monitoring ensuring that the taper stays within tolerances during the casting process.

By monitoring the process in real-time, operators can take corrective action to prevent longitudinal cracks and other defects.
