Patent 2008364126

Method and device for controlling the introduction of several metals into a cavity designed to melt said metals

Abstract

The present invention describes a method and a device for controlling the introduction of several metals into a cavity designed to melt said metals in the form of ingots. In particular, the method according to the invention is designed to control the introduction of several metals into a cavity (2, 3) for melting said metals so as to dip-coat a steel strip (1) with said metals in liquid metal form, whereby a first metal is introduced in the form of at least a first ingot (10) having a high content of said first metal and a second metal is introduced in the form of at least a second ingot (11) consisting of an alloy of the first metal and the second metal, characterized in that the second metal content of the second ingot is chosen from a range of significant contents for ensuring an intended overall flowrate for combined melting of the ingots, the range of significant contents being chosen in a limited interval of sequentially increasing values so as to minimize differences between melting points of the ingots.
