HI-TECH LadleShroud is an Isostatically pressed Alumina-Carbon composite to guide flow of steel from the ladle to the tundish and is designed to offer maximum protection to the steel stream from re-oxidation.
Excellent resistance to thermal shock
Can be used in 100% cold state without any pre-heating
Can be re-used multiple times (limited designs)
Excellent erosion resistance, can withstand longer casting sequences
Suitable for stainless steel quality with high sequence life
HI-TECH LadleShroud is strategically designed to meet user requirements in the most optimum manner.
Reinforcement of slag-line or tundish immersed part
Range of length sizes available with a maximum size of 2500mm
Metal can reinforcement in neck area for additional strength.
Argon gas purging
Ceramic fibre wrapping for enhanced thermal shock prevention
Reverse taper designs
Bell shaped designs to reduce turbulence in tundish
Zero carbon liner design shroud for ultra low carbon steel
HI-TECH Gaskets are available in multiple designs and types to ensure best possible sealing of the ladle shroud with the Ladle Slidegate Nozzle.
HI-TECH Gaskets can be provided both on supply basis as well as on management basis together with HI-TECH LadleShroud. Depending on the average sequence length, an equivalent number of gaskets can be provided along with the ladle shroud.
HI-TECH Gaskets offer the following benefits:
Perfect airtight sealing with the Ladle Slidegate Nozzle prevents formation of any inclusions in steel due to oxidation
Clean & easy application and removal after use
Pressed graphite coating prevents friction with the Nozzle surface
Significant reduction in nitrogen pickup
Argon pipes are used to blow argon in the steel stream flowing through the ladle shroud from the ladle to the tundish. HI-TECH ArgonPipe offers easy and reliable connection to the customer argon control system.
