Continuous Caster Spray Chamber

Molten steel is continuously cast into slabs or billets. As it leaves the mold it passes through the spray chamber where it is gradually cooled and solidified with water sprays or mist. Conditions in the spray chamber are very hostile to thermometers, therefore a specialised product is needed to operate without constant maintenance.

In addition to the high temperatures resulting from casting molten metal, any temperature measurement devices will be exposed to high-pressure water sprays, water vapour and high vibration which may potentially obscure the field of view.

Requiring minimal maintenance, the SP provides the measurements required to optimise cooling patterns in the chamber, influencing both product quality and process efficiency. It also helps avoid costly breakouts which, in addition to being a safety hazard, can cause equipment damage and operation downtime.
