Electric arc furnace temperature measurement and sampling robot

The AI electric arc furnace temperature measurement and sampling robot system is composed of industrial robots, industrial smart cameras, industrial laser range finders automatic probe boxes, etc. The equipment is mature and reliable. It also can be used for Steel ladles, Converters, LF refining furnaces, EAF, and Tundish.

The system has functions such as accurate positioning of the centre of the molten steel level, accurate measurement of the headroom height of the molten steel, and self-adaptation of the probe insertion depth to ensure that the robot can deliver the probe to the required depth below the molten steel level for each temperature measurement and sampling, and accurately measure the temperature of molten steel to obtain a sample that meets the requirements.

Working process

  1. Install the temperature probe or sampling probe

  2. Temperature measurement sampling gun extended

  3. The probe gun is inserted under the molten steel surface

  4. Measure molten steel temperature or take samples

  5. Discard the used temperature probe or place the sampling probe

  6. Waiting for the next temperature measurement or sampling order


Advantages of the AI electric arc furnace temperature measurement and sampling robot


  • Flexible and convenient, save time
  • Improve the working environment and reduce duplication of labor

  • Avoid human interference

  • Improve the success rate and accuracy of temperature measurement and sampling

  • Reduce steel mill costs


  • One temperature measurement process, from taking the probe to returning to the standby position, ≤2 minutes
  • One sampling process, from taking the probe to returning to the standby position, ≤ 2 minutes
  • The automatic conveying time of the probe ≤ 30 s
  • The storage quantity of probe rods is ≥ 30 pcs/bin, and the storage quantity of sampling probe rods is ≥ 15 pcs/bin
