Back-up insulation systems 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 optimize production conditions
Our broad portfolio of steel tundish technical insulation systems guarantee 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 thermal loss reduction that can be achieved with our technical insulation systems.
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 systems can be delivered as wedge- and click-boards to further bring down mounting 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, minimizing the need for on-site customisation and ensuring minimal thermal loss.
Skamol has specialized in helping our customers minimize downtime by guaranteeing a reliable supply through our automated production facilities, and our global delivery network.
