The complexity of using instruments for measuring the technological parameters of induction melting in a continuous mode, and sometimes the impossibility of this, requires the creation of reliable indirect methods for assessing the numerical values of these parameters. This is especially important for quality control of control systems that ensure a given melting temperature regime. The paper proposes a classification rule based on parametric classification methods, which makes it possible to determine the temperature regime of induction melting based on the SiO2 content in the slag and the distribution coefficient.

Checking the classifying ability of the obtained rule showed that it is high, since for all the numerical data of the factor-signs, both the high-temperature and low-temperature modes were classified correctly. The restrictions on the application of the classification rule are shown, among them: the restrictions imposed by the range of variation of the values of the attribute factors, and the restrictions imposed by the small sample of the initial data, as well as the arbitrary area of their distribution in the space of the factor-attributes.

The rule is presented in a normalized form, and also converted to natural form for ease of practical use.

Application of the rule can be recommended to technologists of metallurgical production of foundries to check the compliance of the technological process operations with the specified melting regulations. It can also be used to diagnose processes or temperature control systems that determine the quality of the resulting cast iron. To do this, it is enough to substitute the actual values of SiO2, and Kd into the classification rule. The value of the distribution coefficient Кd is calculated according to the actual data on the content of FeO and MnO in the slag
