Level measurement in continuous casting molds  A precise and quick measurement of mold level lays the foundation for the production of high quality steel and the reliable prevention of steel overflows and breakouts. The Berthold mold level systems fulfill this role reliably and accurately. Several thousand strands throughout the world are equipped with Berthold systems. Berthold Technologies provides measuring systems to solve this challenging measurement application. Depending on the requirements and measurement conditions, the optimum technology is selected.  A graphic representation of our radiometric mold level measurement principle.  Moisture measurement of coke and iron ore/concentrate in bunker, silo, or conveyor belts The moisture content in the coke and the iron ore/concentrate being fed to a blast furnace is of great importance for thermal control of the blast furnace process.  An online moisture measurement at the bunker provides real-time information on the moisture content before the material enters the blast furnace.
