Control in downstream casting process

Launder level control with Precimeter Gate Valve Actuator GXP-10 connected to the ProH level sensor and MLC control panel enables a very accurate control in the metal level downstream casting process. The Precimeter Gate Valve Actuator GXP-10 can be mounted in different positions with simple linkage arm systems. To avoid oxidation and high temperature exposure one mounting example is at the side of the casting launder.
