New order for a Mould Level Control System for a Slab Caster received
An undisclosed customer in the US recently ordered a Mould Level Control Package for their slab caster from INTECO PTI.
The Mould Level Control System consists of:
- Electro-mechanical servo actuator (stopper control system)
- Technological Package - Mould level Master
A new electro-mechanic servo actuator will replace the existing hydraulic actuator to:
- Improve automatic start of cast practice.
- Improve accuracy of mould level control especially for improved surface quality
- Improve maintenance of new system as spare parts purchasing for existing system is becoming difficult
The system will have following additional features:
- The new Electro-mechanical servo actuator will be installed on the tundish car without the need to unplug/plug cables and connections.
- A manual mould level control with lever system for fast take over and accurate control in manual mode (as per existing hydraulic system).
- Disabling of automatic control is performed by electrical disconnection (push-buttons with indicators).
- Increased operator safety by eliminating hydraulic system for stopper control on tundish car
