Reliable at high temperatures, with shocks and vibrations
Steel is produced under the most difficult conditions - at high temperatures, as well as with shocks and vibrations. On the one hand, this requires a reliable process with the best possible quality management, on the other hand it requires top quality systems. We offer you optimal, internationally approved sensors, as well as corresponding network and connection technology.
Our BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors wind up the metal coils with high precision. They guide the pressure roller as a function of the roll diameter for optimum steel strip bundles.
Our BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensor in IP69K ensures precise operation during hot or cold rolling: The linear position sensor maintains the set roll gap with high accuracy. It is vacuum-sealed and does not require any additional protection even when there is continuous water cooling of the rolling stand.
Our BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors in the hydraulic cylinder guide and position the slabs with precision. They check for the correct configuration of the lateral guides and accompany the slabs on their path through the rolling stand. In addition, the system safely compensates for the strong forces that occur during reshaping.
Optimum control over the steel casting process and ensuring the addition of the correct amount of steel to the continuous casting line is only possible through precise casting ladle movements. Our BTL7 magnetostrictive linear position sensors (double and triple-redundant) provide absolute security and the best reliability for your continuous casting process.
Balluff's magnetostrictive linear position sensors enable precise control of valves, flaps, and dampers at the blast furnace. By monitoring degree of opening or closing, they permit the controlled regulation of supply and return air in pig iron production. For simple Open/Closed status monitoring, consider Balluff's rugged inductive proximity sensors.
Electrical equipment installed areas where combustible gases are present - or could be present - must conform to safety code requirements for classified hazardous locations. Balluff offers a variety of globally-certified, hazardous-location linear position sensors for use in hydraulic, pneumatic, or electrically-operated combustion gas valves actuators.
