To study the production of pure copper and copper alloys in the Southwire process the temperature in the mould has been measured on-site in the production process in a number of positions. To increase the accuracy and robustness of measurements a new type of thermocouple based temperature sensor has been developed and tested. The test system includes wireless transmission of measured data from the moving mould. The results from the measurements are then used to calculate the energy transfer rate from the solidifying shell as a function of time. An initial in-situ measurement campaign has been performed and the results are very promising.
