Metal Level Sensor Produces More Uniform Aluminium Castings

Published on May 17, 2009 at 8:09 PM

Aluminium casting using conventional level sensing methods can result in poor uniformity, inadequate slab shape and an overall reduction in surface quality.

The TMMS 200 Metal Level Sensor from VHE Stimir Solutions alleviates these problems and has proven results in use for over ten years in smelters across Europe.

VHE's TMMS 200 is a highly sensitive and accurate non-contact displacement sensor on a mobile arm with an accuracy of ±0.5mm. A processor controlled stepping motor moves the sensor arm, measuring the metal level in real time and precisely calculating the sensor head status. The total sensing range of VHE's TMMS 200 Metal Level Sensor is 200mm.

The TMMS 200 is supplied as an independent unit capable of interfacing with almost any type of metal casting system. It is durable and operates with minimum maintenance for long periods in constant use, saving both overheads and resources.

VHE's Stimir Solutions also manufactures Metal Flow Controllers for precise control of aluminium during casting. Using the TMMS 200 in combination with VHE's Metal Flow Controllers yields even more precise control over the whole casting process.
