Ladle

Our proprietary oxy-fuel ladle preheating systems are designed to heat all types of ladles quickly and efficiently. Fuel savings on the order of 60-65% are routinely achieved due to the significant reduction of hot exhaust gas volumes as compared to air-fuel preheaters. Faster, hotter ladles, with less fuel consumed can all add up to significant cost savings and enhanced productivity. The best solution for your process depends on many factors, such as your existing ladle preheater’s operating parameters, fuel costs, and production schedule. Our applications engineers can help you implement tailored systems to meet your specific needs.

Gases

Nitrogen

Nitrogen is routinely used for molten metal stirring--as a carrier gas for additions, and for desulfurization of molten iron. Maintenance of proper flow and pressure are critical to reduce costs and help provide consistent results.

Oxygen

Oxygen is required for any combustion process. By supplementing or replacing combustion air with oxygen, overall combustion can be improved through increased heat transfer, higher flame temperatures, and reduced volume of flue gases.

Oxy-fuel Systems

Our oxy-fuel ladle preheating systems are designed for a wide turn-down, with seamless mode transition to ensure the ladle is heated quickly and consistently each and every time. Oxy-fuel ladle preheaters can hit target temperatures much faster and reduce or eliminate wait times for ladles.  Our ladle preheating systems are designed for ease of operation and high reliability, while delivering all the benefits of oxy-fuel combustion: faster heating, increased bottom temperatures and significant fuel savings.

Process Management System

You can effectively track operating trends with our advanced methods for data collection and process monitoring. This insight can help you identify areas for improvement so you can achieve more consistent results and lower operating costs. Our systems can automatically generate reports for the data that is most critical to your operation and notify key personnel of deviations from process set-points or targets.
