Following the development of rapid methods of steel analysis the need for greater control of bath temperature has become important, particularly in melting shops using oxygen lancing techniques. In arc furnaces there is also the opportunity of using the temperature to control the power input during refining. This article describes the development of a water-cooled thermocouple probe for continuous immersion.
