GPE provides a variety of sensor heads for the Series 2100 Measurement System. The easy-to-install sensor heads continuously monitor the level and automatically communicate to the GPE electrohydraulic control system, which modulates a tundish slide gate or stopper rod to maintain a desired value.
The air-cooled sensors are positioned over the mold, directly above the molten metal and are capable of detecting changes in level to a resolution of +/- 0.1 mm.
The sensor head is not affected by the presence of mold powder. The variety of sensor heads available allows the accommodation of different applications such as Bloom, Billet, or Slab casting.
