VSD

VIBRATIONAL SLAG CARRY-OVER DETECTION SYSTEMS


Unpredictable slag carry-over from ladle to tundish represents a serious problem, which can lead to either steel impurity or poor ladle yield. Ergolines VSD gives the right balance. The system early detects slag carry-over from ladle to tundish, thus allowing the operator, or an automatic control system, to shut-off the ladle, preserving steel purity in the tundish.


NEEDS

  • Increase ladle yield and reduce steel waste
  • Reduce slag entrapment in the cast product

ADVANTAGES

  • Steel quality improvement
  • Optimized slag/steel ratio at the end of the casting sequence
  • Optimized ladle yield
  • Reduced wear of refractory and slide gate refractory plate
