The sampling system also called measuring lance manipulator (MLM)used to grab and measure the sample or steel chemical analysis without having to power off the ladle furnace and monitor its features (temperature, oxygen and carbon content, and so on) from the internal molten material of the ladle furnaces. The automatic sampler applies specifically to LF, VD, or VOD, whereas the manual sampler applies also to EAF. In the automatic sampler, the lances carrying device holds one or two independent carriages, moved by a gear motor with chain drive; the position of the lances is automatically monitored. An automatic slag-breaking lance can be also provided to break the slag on the top of the liquid steel and give access inside the ladle.
