The Shroud Manipulator is built to achieve an easy handling of the shroud. It enables the user to get a straight connection between the ladle slide gate and tundish. For this purpose a ladle shroud which is flushed with argon is put between by the manipulator. This in return improves the steel quality and prevents reoxidation.
- Emergency system prevents from damage and retains press on force of shroud in case of energy supply interruption
- Increased safety by remote controlled operation
- Controlled guidance of liquid steel improves steel quality and operator safety
