AMETEK Land

Monitors and analysers for Aluminium industry - Metal - Aluminium

AMETEK Land makes integrated thermometer systems designed solely for the temperature measurement of aluminium. Our products meet the highest standards of quality and reliability to ensure accurate performance under plant operating conditions.

Our advanced, dedicated solutions make us the preferred choice of the world’s leading aluminium extruders and strip mill operators, providing the accurate, reproducible temperature measurements required.

AMETEK Land provides established and time-proven systems that are used in installations worldwide. Using our decades of experience and expertise working in the aluminium industry, we have developed market-leading products that monitor billet, slab and strip temperature, and provide essential measurements at the press and quench exit.

Heated billets of aluminium alloy are pushed through a preheated die to create the required profile. Quenching is vital to ensure the finished product has the correct properties.

The process requires accurate temperature monitoring of both the billet and die, for efficiency and to prevent damage to the press. Quench and extrusion monitoring ensures consistent product quality.

With decades of experience and a global reputation for excellence, AMETEK Land provides dedicated solutions for each stage of the process. Our products offer the precision and rapid response your operation requires.

The strip mill takes aluminium from the smelters or recycled product and converts it into a usable industrial form, reducing thick slabs into thin sheets that are light, durable and strong.

Accurate temperature measurements support process control throughout the strip mill, detecting problems before breakdown occurs. The quality of the finished product can be verified by thermal monitoring at key points.

Based on decades of experience within the industry, AMETEK Land products provide dedicated temperature solutions for the aluminium strip mill. The SPOT AL EQS pyrometer delivers high accuracy with a fast response time, while our ASPS system with coil detection software tracks the coil position throughout the process.
