THERMOTEC Board Ladle Liners
Thermotec Ladle Liner systems are a light-weight refractory formulation made for low and high alloys and Manganese Steel. All of Thermotec’s Ladle Liner Systems can be made to fit bottom pour, lip pour and teapot ladles.
Newly lined ladles with Thermotec Lining Systems can be assembled and ready for use within 45 minutes, and since they are made from light-weight material, no preheating is required. This can result in a reduction of ladle shells needed to operate your melting department.
Conventional bottom pour ladle practices of cooling, de-skulling, patching and preheating can take several hours. Thermotec has eliminated all these operations with the Thermotec Ladle Lining Systems. Lower tapping temperatures may be possible, which means shorter melt time and thus increased melting capacity. More molds can be poured from a single heat because the rate of metal cooling in the ladle is reduced by efficient insulation.
Refractory and slag inclusions are also reduced due to the use of the ladle lining system with each heat. Predictable and more consistent pouring temperatures through the pouring period helps lessen the need for superheat, thus reducing shrinkage and incidents of metal temperature being too low at the end of the heat.
