A steel ladle is a container for transferring molten steel tapped from the converter or the electric arc furnaces up to the casting shop, reserving the steel during casting and occasionally during secondary refining of the steel.
Lining design to meet severe operational conditions
Oreworld Trade company supplies all sorts of steel ladle refractories to domestic and also overseas clients obtaining their positive feedback. Experienced engineers of the corporation respond immediately to any questions or requests. To fulfill various requirements, many sorts of refractory materials are ready and the optimal steel ladle lining is offered taking account of energy saving and designed in compliance with the client's operational conditions.
For the steel ladles in domestic integrated steelworks, all linings have been quickly changed from brick lining to monolithic lining including walls and bottom but excepting the slag line zone since 1975 when castable refractories are developed for steel ladles. Please refer to our refractory castables.
On the other hand, for the steel ladles in electric arc furnace shops, conventional brick linings are still employed due to very severe operational conditions under the prevailing LF process. The refractory bricks include clay refractory bricks, high alumina refractory bricks, magnesia refractory bricks and etc.
Calcium Aluminate for Metallurgy is also a kind of auxiliary material for steelmaking, as it speeds up secondary metallurgy process, especially faster desulphurization, Improves overall steel cleanliness and makes high-grade steel at a cheaper cost. Its applications have already been mature in some foreign countries, such as South Korea, Japan, the United States and the developed European countries.
