Abstract

1351125 Coating by hot dipping BRITISH STEEL CORP 19 April 1971 [15 April 1970] 17964/70 Heading C7F [Also in Division G3] Disconformities in moving metal sheet from a predetermined phase are detected and the sheet is then fluxed in dependence on the degree of disconformity, the fluxing being of such a sense and magnitude as to urge the sheet to conform to a desired plane. As applied to zinc plating apparatus in which any excess zinc on the emergent strip 1 is blown back into molten zinc bath 3 by jets 6 acting on opposite sides thereof, a proximity detector 7 and electro-magnet 8 ensure that the strip 1 is midway between the opposing jets 6 thereby preventing fouling of the jets. In Fig. 3 a plurality of detectors 7 and correcting magnets 8 are provided on opposite sides of the sheet 1. Each detector 7 comprises opposed windings 12, 13 on one limb of an H shaped core which are energized by an A. C. source 11, and a centre tapped detector coil 14. Dummy ferro-magnetic loads 16 are provided for each detector. A processing circuit 15 energizes the associated electro-magnet 8 when the strip 1 deviates from the desired plane. The processing circuit develops a D.C. signal of the sense and magnitude required to energize magnet 8 sufficiently for it to flex the strip back to the desired midway position. In Fig. 4 (not shown) the detector comprises a pair of opposed U- shaped electro-magnets on opposite sides of the strip 1. Each U-shaped magnet has a pair of energizing coils and a detector coil. Any deviation of the strip from a plane midway between the U-shaped electro-magnet provides different signals in the detector coils which are fed to a processing circuit to produce D. C. corrective signals for the magnet controlling flexing. Fig. 5 (not shown) uses opposed E-shaped cores. The D. C. corrective signals are fed to a bridge circuit or a feedback amplifier which controls the energization of the magnet 8. Instead of magnetic detectors capacitive, focused light beam, back pressure air gauges, ultra-sonic or micro-wave detectors may be used.
