To achieve an optimal flow pattern in the mould of a continuous caster, it is desirable to use a tailored control of the flow using electromagnetic actuators (e.g. electromagnetic brakes or stirrers) based on the current flow condition in the mould. However, the rough environment provides a challenge. Contactless Inductive Flow Tomography (CIFT) is a technique that can provide information about the flow structure by visualizing the full velocity field in the mould. In order to reconstruct the flow, the perturbation of an applied magnetic field by the flow is measured. It is obvious that every change of the strength of the magnetic field of an electromagnetic brake influences the measured values. In this paper we cover the challenges of measuring the flow induced magnetic field in the range of nT in the presence of varying magnetic field of the electromagnetic actuators in the range of 100 mT.
