Measuring method

in cooperation with the Institute for Industrial Furnaces and Heat Engineering, RWTH

By tailoring the geometry and/or the use of tundish furniture to optimise the flow of molten mass within the tundish's flow pattern, we aim to:

  • improve the dwell time distribution by increasing the minimal dwell time
  • provide sufficient time for separating non-metallic inclusions

In contrast, the following is to be avoided:

  • dead flow zones and short-circuit flows between the infeed chamber and the ladle shroud
  • surface movements within the infeed area which could lead to more slag particles being dragged into the molten mass
