Functional Description

CONGAUGE LB 6755 is a modern, high-tech radiometric detector, utilizing first-class sensing technology to continuously measure both the liquid steel level and the thickness of the casting powder layer in a mold during continuous casting. CONGAUGE LB 6755 has been designed in cooperation with SMS Concast and enables also for controlling of automatic feeders for casting powder, reducing human intervention in a dangerous area.



The superior SiPM technology replacing the conventional Vacuum Photomultiplier Tube (PMT), is characterized by a very small and compact design. With improved ruggedness, low power consumption, virtually no degradation and built-in redundancy, the SiPM technology is ideal for demanding mold level applications.



Measuring the steel level in continuous casting

Radiometric based mould level measurement is the dominating technology for measuring the steel level in continuous casting. Herein we discuss performance, statistical variation, influencing factors, source selection, and that recent development has brought the ability to also simultaneously measure the thickness of the casting powder layer. Continuous casting improves quality and reduces the production costs considerably. These advantages, as well as the improvement of the process in general, have led to the fact that today almost all steel production is done through continuous casting.
