This paper presents an intelligent system capable of eliminating the surface flaws and casting rejects, to increase the quality of continuously cast products and implicitly to increase the productivity of the installation.This method contains a fuzzy controller which requires changes of the water flow value at the secondary cooling. Fuzzy system controlling in real time the distribution of the water flow rate according to the real situation in the installation and working as an adaptive. The simulations results show us that the control strategy proposed is a very efficient method for the water flow control in the secondary cooling stage.
