Heraeus Electro-Nite has been the market leader since the 1950s in the field of measurement technology in molten metals. It provides the steel, iron, aluminum, and copper producers with integrated measurement systems consisting of a sensor, instrumentation, and associated hardware. These systems provide a wide range of measurements including those for temperature, oxygen, hydrogen, and carbon. The Operating Company is headquartered in Houthalen-Helchteren, Belgium, in the middle of Europe. The company applies a customer-oriented approach and therefore has locations in 25 different countries all over the world.
Heraeus Electro-Nite has been at the forefront of sensor development, constantly expanding and improving the range of measurements available, resulting in today's sophisticated, reliable and easy to use disposable and non-disposable probes and associated instrumentation. In collaboration with its customers, Heraeus Electro-Nite seeks to build partnerships which will benefit the metals industry by supplying quality probes of ever improving technology to satisfy increasingly diverse applications.
The systems and sensors from Heraeus Electro-Nite provide a wide range of measurements including those for temperature, oxygen, hydrogen, and carbon. As well as single spot measurements, continuous measurement systems are also available for the continuous casting machine. On-going research and development ensure that the company remains at the forefront of measurement technology, allowing customers to operate to the highest levels of quality and efficiency.
The knowledge of liquid metal temperature is essential for the production and quality control of steel, cast iron and non-ferrous alloys. The molten metal temperature must be within strict limits to achieve the optimum quality before the heat or melt can be tapped or cast. Thermocouples Immersion thermo-electric sensors remain the best way to determine the real temperature of a molten metal. They are available in various types to meet the specific requirements of different application.
Fast, accurate, and reliable liquid metal temperature readings are indispensable tools for cost-effective temperature control during steel production. High performance expendable temperature sensors from Heraeus Electro-Nite offer a wide choice of thermocouple types, probe lengths, and immersion lances to suit all process applications. Temperature Control is also an important part during copper production. Heraeus Electro-Nite offers a range of measurement instruments, sensors and lances.
