  • Patent number: 10527406
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method and device for determining the loss on ignition of at least part of an iron and steel product during passage through a furnace upstream of a descaler. The device includes electromagnetic sensors, with at least one arranged to scan the product's lower surface near the furnace outlet, the sensor oriented so the scanning plane of the electromagnetic radiation from the sensor is perpendicular to a direction of movement; a set of at least two electromagnetic sensors upstream of the descaler, oriented so their scanning planes are substantially on a single plane perpendicular to the direction of movement of the at least part of the product; and at least two electromagnetic sensors downstream of the descaler, oriented so their scanning planes are substantially on a single plane perpendicular to the product's movement direction. The sensors determine the height of the product upstream and downstream of the descaler.

  • Publication number: 20020058338
    Abstract: A cell growth method and device with multiple applications, in particular to the maintenance, proliferation, amplification or differentiation of cells in a closed enclosure (10), including individual flow rate or quantity adjustment means (30, 36) for determining compositions and flow rates of mixtures of different nutrient media or constituents and compositions and flow rates of different mixtures of growth factors, corresponding to an envisaged application, and then to modify the compositions and/or the flow rates of the mixtures of nutrient media or constituents and of the mixtures of growth factors delivered to the enclosure, which modifications can be effected independently of each other.
