Ladle refining furnaces are used to improve the chemical composition and homogeneity of steel products and increase productivity in steel-making operations. By allowing the steel-making furnaces to be used exclusively as melting units, tap-to-tap times are decreased, increasing the production capacity and decreasing overhead costs per ton of steel produced. It also helps in flexible scheduling as liquid metal can be held at the proper temperature while waiting for caster availability.
The objectives of ladle metallurgy are the following.
12 Ton LRF to 100 Tons LRF
Current conducting electrode arms are a melt-shop-proven design that provides efficient cooling as well as reduced electrical loss. The utilization of copper-clad (copper and steel) arms combines the high strength of steel while exhibiting the high conductivity and current-carrying ability of copper.
Due to their outstanding design and optimal materials, Megatherm electrode arms deliver lower electric operating costs, low graphite consumption, higher process speed, easy handling, optimal symmetry, and maximum efficiency.
