Controlling flow securily

The Pin Position Actuator PXP-2EM is primarily used to control the flow of molten metal through a stopper and nozzle valve; for instance in ingot/slab casting applications. The PXP-2EM is also prepared with a fail safe emergency closing system. Vertical drop control with PXP-2EM pin positioner. The Precimeter pin position actuator PXP-2EM connected to the ProH and an MLC control panel form a system which very precisely controls the molten metal level, in for example a tundish or a DC slab casting mould.
