Temperature Control

Fast, accurate, and reliable liquid metal temperature readings are indispensable tools for cost-effective temperature control during iron production. High performance expendable temperature sensors from Heraeus Electro-Nite offer a wide choice of thermocouple types, probe lengths, and immersion lances to suit all process applications.

Additional non-splash, for improved operator protection, together with multi-immersion designs are available for critical applications and use in foundries.

In iron casting continuous temperature sensing has become common. In most cases the Contitherm (or Contitherm lite) sensor is installed close to the tundish stopper.
