Steel casting ladles have evolved during the years from pure transport vessels into a metallurgical reactor for modern steel production. This brought to increasing demands on the linings. Nowadays, many customers prefer ladles that are mainly lined with high-grade fused magnesite bricks. Our customers require personalized solutions, in order to optimize the consumptions on the basis of their operations and metallurgical requirements. We provide detailed solutions, from basic construction steel grades, up to special and stainless steel.
We provide also functional ceramics associated with steel casting ladles, such as purging and slide gate systems, including well blocks, nozzles and slide gate plates.
WELL BLOCKS AND NOZZLE
Manufactured in our workshops in Italy, our products are made with European high performance refractory castables and are characterized by high density / low porosity and high strength.
SID-PLUG purging plugs can be provided in different models, non-directional (porous), directional or dynamic.
SID-PLATES Slide Gate Plates provide a high corrosion resistance and improved thermal shock resistance. For our SiderGate systems, we have also optimized refractory plate design for plate crack control and finite element studies to predict thermo-mechanical behaviour. Produced with the latest technologies are finished in our workshops in Italy, which guarantees a clear quality control and assures optimal results to our customers.
WALL AND BOTTOM
SID-MAG bricks made with a blend of fused and sintered Magnesia; by request also with low residual Carbon content.
SID-MAG made of high grade fused Magnesia with increased residual carbon content.
Bricks made of Allumina-MgO-Carbon with increased erosion resistance.
Bricks made of calcined bauxite or andalusite quality.
