China alone now produces more than 30 percent of the steel used worldwide. To ensure consistent quality, manufacturers regularly measure the temperature and chemical composition of molten steel and iron (e.g., its oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, or sulfur concentration). Many steel manufacturers use lance-shaped sensors from Hermes to measure and determine these parameters within seconds.
The product line includes a broad range from disposable to multipurpose to continuously measuring sensors. In addition, immersion and drop sensors, special samplers and crucibles, as well as services for molten metal processes round out our portfolio for the steel and aluminum industry.
