Sensors for Continuous Casting

Continuous casting utilizes tapered molds to account for shrinkage as the molten metals cool.

It is essential to monitor the taper to ensure that the mounting angle is accurate, otherwise, a break-out may occur.

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.

Sherborne Sensors’ high precision inclinometers measure horizontal and vertical angular inclination with virtually infinite resolution; providing highly accurate tilt and inclination measurements for demanding industrial applications.
