Steel teeming ladle

In modern melting shops, teeming ladles are no longer mere transport vessels for liquid metal transfer. Nowadays, steel residence time in teeming ladles has increased along with prolonged porous plug stirring periods utilised in vacuum processes and ladle furnace reheating. It is of fundamental importance for the production of high quality steel that teeming ladle linings are optimised in-line with sophisticated process metallurgy requirements. INTOCAST provides refractory concepts covering applications of integrated steelmaking plants, mini mills and stainless steel melting shops.
