Tundishes are often connected with high steel shell temperatures and maintaining a stable temperature is crucial in this stage of the production. Combined with the constant wear on the lining from the continuous flow of hot steel, tundish relinings are often frequent and costly.
Backup insulation solutions must be able to resist the high compressive force of the tundish refractory. Skamol offers a wide range of vermiculite boards and moler bricks to overcome the various challenges of continuous caster tundishes. Some of the common benefits include:
Skamol offers a wide range of vermiculite boards and moler bricks to overcome the various challenges of continuous caster tundishes. Our vermiculite insulating boards, V-1100 (600), V-1100 (700), VIP-900 and VIP-12 HS, are all capable of withstanding the extreme conditions inside the tundish, helping to optimise production conditions
Our broad portfolio of steel tundish insulation solutions guarantees that many aspects of production can be covered by one or more of our insulating products.
Use our Heat Transfer Calculator to get an estimate of the relative heat loss reduction that can be achieved with our insulation solutions.
We constantly strive to be the closest partner for the iron and steel industry. Therefore, we continue to develop and improve our materials in cooperation with industry leaders. Our tundish insulation products can be delivered as wedge- and click-boards to further bring down installation and relining time. The click-boards combine five boards into one. The vertical slots make the boards adjust perfectly to the construction leaving no gaps, minimising the need for on-site customisation and ensuring minimal heat loss.
