Primary metallurgy


Refractory linings of modern converters and electric arc furnaces usually consist of mag-carbon bricks. INTOCAST offers their customers not only highest quality materials but also appropriate designs: we manufacture made-to measure products for reliable lining performances and long service lives. Over and above, we offer our INFINITY and ULTIMAX maintenance products for even lining wear, ideal tools to reliably prolong the service life and operational stability of the vessels.
High-quality linings, in conjunction with perfectly matched maintenance products, guarantee minimum downtime. A comprehensive service plan complemented with high-tech equipment provides for maximum operational availability of melting units. Talk to us!

Secondary metallurgy

Steel teeming ladle

The production of steel is a complex affair. For example, extensive bottom purging activities ensure that the steel stays in the ladle longer. In the field of steel production, the heating processes in pan furnace operations and vacuum treatment are also significant factors. As such, optimally coordinated linings of the steel foundry ladles are a basic prerequisite for the economical production of high-quality steel. The experts at INTOCAST know this. This is why we develop an individual concept for the operation of integrated steel mills, mini-mills, and for the production of stainless steel for each customer.

Lining options

Classic lining with mag-carbon, dolomite or AMC bricks

In hybrid ladle linings, INTOCAST combines classic brick installations with monolithic refractory lining technology. Ladle floor and/or side walls are lined with self-flowing concrete or thixotropic material. The slag line is prepared with traditional mag-carbon brick masonry.

Shaped refractory products

“Form follows function“ is a design guideline also applicable to our refractory products. INTOCAST offers a wide range of shaped refractory products in line with your requirements. Our portfolio covers simple straights, taphole end bricks, taphole sleeves all the way to metal cased keys in numerous formats and versions. Of course, we manufacture products according to your individual requirements. Contact us, we look forward to receiving your call or mail!
