SP - Spray Chamber


Fibre optic infrared thermometer system, custom-designed for temperature measurements in the hostile environment of the continuous caster spray chamber.


A drift-free thermometer designed to overcome the adverse environment of a continuous caster spray chamber, SP utilises AMETEK Land’s accurate short wavelength processing to ensure a reliable measurement – even in the hottest and harshest conditions.

Requiring no electronics be located in the spray chamber, and needing no water cooling to operate, SP’s resilient measurement solution gives trouble-free operation with only minimal maintenance requirements.

Easily installed using a waterproof, fibre-optic light guide, a high efficiency air pressure purge keeps the lens clean while the System 4 Landmark Classic/Graphic signal processor provides power and signal processing to filters out potential errors from water and steam.

Available in a range of models customised to specific temperatures, wavelength and optics requirements, the SP provides the steel industry a reliable, accurate solution for this challenging application.

Easy to install and operate, the only service required is an air line connected to the sighting tube, to provide a robust, purged sighting path from the thermometer to the slab surface.

The SP offers precise temperature measurements to suit individual process conditions, with nine temperature ranges available spanning 600 °C (1112 °F) -2600 °C (4712 °F). 

Because no electronics are located in the spray chamber, the thermometer produces accurate results despite the hostile conditions. The light guide is protected by a narrow thick walled outer tube, and the field of view is kept clear by an air purge system.

The SP is AMETEK Land’s trouble-free thermometer for temperature measurements in the continuous caster spray chamber.
