Coat Weight / Thickness Measurement Systems for Coating Lines
Seltek thickness gauges are used for different applications in coating process such as:
- Continuous Galvanizing Line
- Electrogalvanizing Line
- Tin Coating Line
- Paint Coating Line
These systems measure the thickness of the coating material on-line. Sensors are isotope or x-ray source based. X-Ray Fluorescence and beta-backscatter principles are used in the design of these sensors. Measurement is non-contact.
O-Frame Scanner, C-Frame Scanner and Single Beam Scanner are all available for coating processes. Scanning mode, 3-point dwelling mode and single point mode are the available measurement modes with these scanners.
Electronics enjoy a distributed architecture and the cabling between the frame and the main CPU is minimal, being restricted to Ethernet cable and power cable.
HMI (Human Machine Interface) is operator friendly. Fast and slow trend plots, recipe page, rich maintenance page, coil report page, alarm and event log pages are all very easy to learn and self guiding. Coil data is stored numerically in MS SQL® database, which can be converted to Excel® format for use by mill staff.
