Exochem Cold Ladle Liner systems are a dense insulating fiber formulation made for low and high alloys and Manganese Steel. Standard Formulations are available in SiO2, AL2O3, MgO. All of Exochem's Cold Ladle Liner Systems can be made to fit bottom pour, lip pour, teapot and handle ladles. Sizes range from 400 lbs to 20 tons.
Newly lined ladles with Exochem Cold Lining Systems can be ready for use within 45 minutes and lip our ladle within 10 minutes after its last pour. This can result in a reduction of ladle shells needed to operate your melting department.
Conventional bottom pour ladle practices of cooling, deskulling, patching and preheating can take several hours. Exochem has eliminated all these operations with the Exochem Cold Ladle Lining Systems. Lower tapping temperatures may be possible, which means shorter melting times 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 cold ladle lining system with each heat. Predictable and more consistent pouring temperatures through the pouring period helps to avoid high temperatures at the beginning of the heat, thus reducing shrinkage and low temperatures at the end of the heat.
