Hardware and instrumentation for molten metal control
Continuing advances in process control technology, and increasingly stringent quality needs further proves that the steel industry requires measurement systems of ever improving speed, accuracy and reliability. Aware of this, Heraeus Electro-Nite offers its customers a wide range of different measurement probes and instruments.
Heraeus Electro-Nite is a competent partner for foundry technology, process data handling and measurement technique in production and laboratory. Since 2016, this has also included the products and services of former OCC GmbH.
Our team of metallurgists, software developers and application engineers supports the foundry industry with innovative products and know-how. Your efficiency will be improved by measurement systems, software and wire treatment machines customised to your production flow. By implementing automatic systems to control the CGI and SG production you achieve stable metallurgy and constant mechanical properties.
Specific expendable sensors were recently developed by Heraeus Electro-Nite to measure process parameters for the aluminium reduction process. Through electrolytic reduction in cryolite baths, liquid aluminium metal is produced in the primary aluminium industry. Bath temperature, liquidus temperature, superheat and cathode voltage drop are the measured parameters on reduction cells.
