System for continuous temperature measurement of molten steel in tundish – a new method of temperature measurement, which was researched and invented, based on the blackbody theory. The principle of temperature measurement system is immersion of a temperature probe into molten steel for determination of temperature. Blackbody temperature probe is specially designed to receive an infrared signal corresponding to the temperature of molten steel. OPTICAST system allows continuous measurement of heating temperature of a ladle, improvement of stability and reliability of liquid metal temperature measurement. System eliminates human factor errors due to fixed measurement position.
