A fast and simple method for the assessment of the surface condition of rolls used in steel manufacture has been developed. A sensor head which is both compact and strong is used to analyse the condition of the rolls used in hot strip mills. The sensor adapts to the roller surface using either water jet or compressed air, and uses parallel illumination to measure the backscattered light from the roller surface. Both methods have been tested.
