Steel Ladle Lining

Sep 14th, 2022 – Sep 16th, 2022seminar in english

Directed by

Dr. Andreas Buhr
Dr. Helmut Lachmund

Target Group

The wear of refractory materials in the secondary metallurgy is particularly high. These high wear mechanisms are complex, but mainly caused by slags. High temperatures, long-terming treatment and turbulences of stirring gas are also important factors for wear and failures. Maintenance and operating personnel, su­pervisors responsible for plant and unit op­erations, and managers responsible for decisions on refractory problems will learn about new materials and installation methods


• Trends in clean steel technology and steel ladle lining
• Demands on refractories for secondary metallurgy
• Improvements of the steel ladle linings
• Thermal efficiency and management of teeming ladles
• Neutral steel ladle lining for flat steel production
• Ladle lining for quality and engineering steels
• Lining design for tank degassing operation
• Monolithic lining in a 3-converter-shop
• Flexibility of refractory lining for varying operating conditions
• Purging plugs in steel ladles
• Team work: Optimization of economics in refractories
• Refractory panels on current technical subjects

• Steel Plant Tour at DEW Specialty Steel Siegen
