Process data

Measuring task:
Level measurement
Measuring point:
Conveyor belt
Measuring range up to:
5 m
Limestone, coke, sinter mix
Process temperature:
+800 … +1000 °C
Process pressure:
0 … 0 bar
Special challenges:
Dust, extreme heat


After sintering, the hot material is cooled down to a temperature of about 150 °C in the sintering cooler. The feed rate of the sintering belt is controlled to ensure that the material is thrown off at the end of the sintering belt. To achieve effective cooling, the thickness of the material on the sintering belt has to be continuously and precisely measured.
