The article presents the results of research concerning the change of liquid steel flow and mixing in the T-type tundish. It has been installed in one of polish steel plants. Continuously changing market conditions have forced the change in the range of cast strand. As a consequence the new control system of liquid steel flow had to be applied. Up to now a baffle with notch has played the role of steel flow regulation. It was placed between the inlet and channel zones of a tundish. However such solution was not satisfactory. Therefore, a new flow control equipment was designed - baffles and different constructional variants of turbulence inhibitors. To estimate the efficiency of their functioning and in the same time their influence on the tundish work, modelling research was carried out. The research was also complemented by numerical simulations. The article presents results of such research as well as experimentally and numerically determined RTD curves of mixing (Residence Time Distribution).
