Transporting hot metal is one of the most volatile and crucial links in the entire production chain. The challenges include resisting the reoxidization of the hot metal and securing not only a high, stable temperature, but also the structural integrity of the refractory lining.
In general, the VIP-12 HS or VIP-12 HT boards will help maximise efficiency and reduce costs of maintenance for torpedo cards in the iron and steel industry. Calculate how much heat loss can be reduced with our insulating materials using our Heat Transfer Calculator.
The requirements of torpedo car insulation vary, and Skamol strives to be the most flexible partner in meeting every kind of insulation requirement.
Depending on the needs of our customers, our different insulation materials can be custom fitted to specifications. This results in reduced maintenance costs, as the relining process is shortened. We also offer both wedge- and click-boards. Click-boards further speed up the relining process, saving our customers even more time by combining five boards into one. The vertical slots make the boards adjust perfectly to the construction leaving no gaps, ensuring minimal heat loss and minimising the need for customisation on site.
