Simultaneous Measurements of Local Velocities and Temperature in Liquid Metals by Permanent-Magnet Potential Probe 1999-01-2508

An experimental technique has been developed to measure the local velocity in molten metals. Couette flow of liquid aluminum, lead, tin and low melting alloy in cylindrical container was chosen for calibration of the experimental technique and the magnetic probe. Velocity and temperature profiles for liquid aluminum rotating in cylindrical container at different angular velocities are obtained for two different values of the depth. We determined that the velocity values increase with magnetic induction, and the relationship between the normalized azimuthal velocity and the magnetic induction can be expressed by quadratic function.
