Precimeter Tap Out Actuator

Precimeter tap out actuators are primarily used to control the flow of molten metal through the exit tap hole of a stationary furnace. Once casting is started the existing control rod is fastened on to the actuator. With a level signal from a level sensor the actuator will automatically control the metal level and flow in the launder system feeding the casting machine. The operators can be removed from dangerous areas and set to supervise the process from a safe location.
