Iron ladles transfer liquid iron from either a Treadwell ladle or hot metal mixer to a BOF Vessel. Due to the high temperature and extreme wear it requires significant maintenance. Maintenance is usually based on tons of iron transferred but usually requires small amounts of maintenance on a weekly basis. Resco recommends Rescal 70D for the safety lining refractory.
LadleMax BSC is a resin-bonded alumina-carbon brick with silicon carbide designed for iron charging ladle service. LadleMax BSC is a bauxited-based, iron-friendly refractory typically used in low wear area of the vessel sidewalls and bottoms.
