ECCC2011, the 7th European Continuous Casting Conference, was held in Düsseldorf, Germany, mid-2011. SERT METAL presented a paper, entitled “Tailoring the improvement of Automatic Mould Level Control to the specific need of each caster", reviewing several returns of experience with advanced sensing and flow control techniques (case studies with ArcelorMittal Fos / Tata Steel Ijmuiden / SSAB-EMEA, Lulea).
