Sino-German Workshop

on Electromagnetic Processing of Materials

Oct. 11-13, Shanghai, China


Slide2 l.jpg

Why do we need flow measurements in metallic melts ?

Knowledge about the flow field and the transport

properties of the flow

Optimisation of products, technologies and facilities

  • better understanding of the process

  • validation of CFD models

  • on-line control and monitoring


Slide3 l.jpg

Current situation

Commercial measuring techniques for liquid metal flows are almost not available !

Reasons

  • properties of the fluid (opaqueness, heat conductivity,..)

  • high temperatures

  • chemical reactivity

  • interfacial effects

  • external electromagnetic fields


Goals l.jpg

Goals

  • to develop measuring techniques for liquid metal flows at moderate temperatures

     model experiments (T  300°C)

  • to extend the range of application towards higher temperatures


Data of interest l.jpg

Data of interest

  • flow rate

  • local velocity

  • fluctuations, turbulence level

  • flow pattern (velocity profiles, 3D-structure)

List of measuring techniques

  • Local probes(invasive)

    • Electric Potential Probe (EPP, Vives Probe)

    • Mechano-Optical Probe (MOP)

  • Ultrasonic methods(non-invasive, but need contact)

    • Ultrasound Doppler Velocimetry (UDV)

  • Inductive methods(contact-less)

    • Inductive Flowmeter (IFM)

    • Contactless Inductive Flow Tomography (CIFT)

  • X-ray radioscopy

    • Local probes(invasive)

  • Ultrasound doppler velocimetry udv l.jpg

    Ultrasound Doppler Velocimetry (UDV)

    • Takeda (1987, 1991)

    • Commercial instrument

    • standard transducers

      (Tmax = 150°C)

    • Measurement of instantaneous velocity profiles


    Udv in liquid metals problems l.jpg

    UDV in liquid metals – problems

    • High temperature

    • Acoustic coupling

    • Transmission of ultrasonic energy through

      interfaces (channel walls)

    • Wetting conditions

    • Availability of reflecting particles


    Slide9 l.jpg

    Concept of an integrated probe I


    Concept of an integrated probe ii l.jpg

    Concept of an integrated probe II

    • Collaboration with the University Nishni-Novgorod (Russia)

    • Piezoelectrictransducer coupled on an acoustic wave guide made of stainless steel

    • Stainless steel foil (0.1 mm) wrapped axially around a capillary tube: length 200 mm, outer diameter 7.5 mm

    UDV – Flow driven by RMF/TMF


    Slide15 l.jpg

    UDV in CuSn/Al – Experimental Set-up

    • Rectangular alumina crucible (130  80 mm2)

    • melt depth 40 mm

    • inductive heater

    • melt temperature:

      620°C (CuSn), 750°C (Al)

    • installation of the integrated sensor at the free surface of the melt

    • Doppler angle 35°


    Slide16 l.jpg

    UDV in CuSn/Al – Results

    Profiles obtained at two positions:

    • different signs

    • similarity of shape and amplitude

    Velocity signal obtained in liquid

    aluminium by up-and-down moving

    of the sensor by hand


    Slide17 l.jpg

    Contactless Inductive Flow Tomography (CIFT)

    • An existing flow field will modify an applied magnetic field:

      B=B0+b,b~Rm B0 (Rm=µLv)

      e.g. the magnetic field measured outside the melt contains information about the flow field

    • Rm ~ 10-3  b ~ O(T)

    Example: crystal growth configuration

    (Czochralski method)


    Slide18 l.jpg

    CIFT - Basics

    • Bio-Savart‘s law

    • inverse method to reconstruct the velocity field

    • additional requirements:

      • mass conservation (div u = 0)

      • Tichonov regularization (keeps the mean quadratic curvature of the velocity field finite)


    Cift experiment l.jpg

    CIFT - Experiment

    • 48 Hall sensors

      (KSY44-Infineon, resolution 1 T)

    • Mechanical stirrer (2000rpm)

      max. velocity ~ 1 m/s

    • Cylinder filled with InGaSn

      (D = 180 mm , H = 180 mm)

    • Magnetic field: two pairs of Helmholtz coils 10mT
