Level measurement in torpedo cars

Process data

Measuring task:
Level measurement
Measuring point:
Torpedo car
Measuring range up to:
10 m
Pig iron
Process temperature:
0 … +1400 °C
Process pressure:
0 … 0 bar
Special challenges:
High temperatures


After the blast furnace is tapped, the molten pig iron flows into torpedo cars at a temperature of over 1400 °C, then transported to the foundry or converter for further processing. A reliable level measurement is a must for the safe, reliable filling of these torpedo cars.
