Designed for liquid metal transfer requirements from transport ladles into the holding furnaces, these systems are equipped with special control parameters to automatically interface with the furnace heating program. The operator control station is conveniently located for easy access and the control strategy is built into the main furnace PLC.
Metal transfer between melting and holding furnaces and metal delivery to casting machines are critical steps of the casthouse process. Specific requirements are evaluated and system layouts and features are engineered to provide optimum control as well as operator safety and comfort. Protection covers are integrated into the furnace and launder interface points to offer additional protection to operating and maintenance personnel in these high-traffic areas.
Specific applications for tapping, transfer and road ladles are available.
Melting furnace charging machines are designed for specific applications and form an integral part of the process.
