Agenda

Multi-use refractories for bottom pour ladles - VAPEX FOSFLOW and VISO monobloc stopper

When using stopper and nozzle technologies for bottom pouring applications it may be desirable to change nozzle diameters between fills of the ladle or even between castings. In normal circumstances this would not be possible as it would require removing and replacing the nozzle and stopper. In our webinar we present you our VAPEX FOSFLOW Nozzle System. It is a new system that allows for changes in nozzle diameter, even in a full ladle. When used in conjunction with VISO monoblock stopper technology that allows a multi-use of the stopper, too, the flow control system can be used 5 to 10 times more than a conventional nozzle. VAPEX FOSFLOW alumina graphite nozzles use both carbon and ceramic bond technology. The combination of the two bonding systems provide unique beneficial properties for steel foundry ladle applications. 

The main benefits are: 

  • The pouring nozzle can be changed quickly
  • Multiple use of the stopper & nozzle system resulting in labour cost reduction
  • No cooldown of the ladle resulting in energy savings and increased ladle lining performance
