Faseroptische Schmelzentemperaturmessung mit Handlanze im Induktionsofen

DynTemp – Fiber optic melt temperature measurement

Initial situation:

The measurement of a representative melt temperature which is the average value of the entire melt, is of decisive importance for energy-efficient temperature control. A conventional short-term temperature measurement with thermocouples, however, only provides a single value which does not contain any information on thermal fluctuations and melt homogeneity. In order to monitor the temperature evolution in the melt with high dynamics and accuracy, we use the fiber optic temperature measurement technology DynTemp developed by BFI.

Objectives:

Optimize the homogenization procedure or find the ideal measurement time using the fibre optical technique for continuous temperature measurements.

Our portfolio:

We have developed and applied the technology successfully to electric arc furnaces, ladle furnaces, stirring plants, and induction furnaces. We offer our expertise in melt temperature measurement for campaigns to plants that want to further improve their process management.
