Torpedo Ladle Car and Refractory Products

Torpedo Cars, also known as hot metal cars, are utilized as iron transfer cars. They have a residence time of two to four hours or longer. More recently torpedo cars have been utilized for molten metal treatments such as de-sulfurization and de-siliconization. The torpedo car transfers molten iron (pig iron) from the blast furnace to the steelmaking facility.

Both processes require refractories to withstand high temperatures and a greater number of chemical reactions. Resulting in a greater impact on the refractory present.

Common Resco products utilized in a torpedo car consists of Krial CFB, Rescal 70D, and Seneca 60P. Our experts will ensure you're getting the right refractory products for the job.

LadleMax BSC - a resin-bonded alumina carbon brick with silicon carbide designed for use in hot metal cars or iron charging ladles. This bauxite-based, iron friendly brick is typically used in low wear areas. 

Krial CFB - a low iron, high strength 70% alumina brick designed for resistance to impact, abrasion, and carbon monoxide (CO) attack in severe blast furnace and DRI applications. 

Rescal 70D- this general-purpose, bauxite-based 70% alumina brick features an extraordinary degree of corrosion and thermal shock resistance. It is ideally suited when cost-effectiveness is essential. These brick are also used to line iron charging ladles

Vibrocast 60PC - a 60% alumina, mullite-based shotcrete mix designed for minimum porosity and low linear change with maximum density and high fired strengths. This material will withstand severe high-temperature corrosion and erosion environments.

Quikturn 60PC - a 60% alumina, mullite-based shotcrete material. After the initial set, the hot metal car can be returned to operation without curing or the traditional controlled heating schedule.

EZ Cubed 70PC - a 70% alumina shotcrete mix designed to give improved erosion, corrosion, and refractoriness over Vibrocast 60PC.

Wet Mortar

Rescoset 80P TR-D3Arrow icon

Rescoset 80P is a wet high alumina bonding mortar with improved shelf life. With the unique chemical bonding system, high bonding strength is developed at lower temperatures (300-600°F) and continues until a ceramic bonding occurs. Rescoset 80P is primarily used to lay up high alumina brick and is available in troweling and dipping consistency. It is used in areas where severe service conditions require increased refractoriness and corrosion/erosion resistance.
