As an alternative to radar stockline probes, the mechanical stockline probes can be used to measure the filling height and burden levels in the blast furnace. The system uses a very reliable contact measurement method where the material surface is sensed mechanically. The mechanical stockline probe manufactured by TMT features a sturdy design and is absolutely gas-tight. With a shut-off valve installed, the measurement weight can be installed during blast furnace operation. The device has proven effective on countless blast furnaces worldwide.
