HD moldFO

HD mold is a temperature measurement device using a high density of fibre optical sensors (FO) along the full height of the mold.

Compared with the conventional thermocouple the direct visualization of the local strand shell thickness and of the respective thicknesses of the liquid and solid mold powder layers is only possible with HD moldFO optical fiber technology.

  • High-resolution display of temperature profile
  • Sticker detection rate up to 100 %
  • Improvement of alarm rate > 30 %
  • Safe detection of longitudinal facial cracks ≥ 4 cm
