Can SELF technology be applied to any steel ladle design?
Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories’ SELF technology can typically be applied to any steel ladle that can accommodate a monolithic bottom. The company’s technical team will evaluate each individual case, proposing a unique solution for each customer's steel ladle bottom configuration.
Is it possible to measure the reduction of scrap generated by this solution?
Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories and its partner companies combine computer simulations and specific customer-focused technical proposals to generate a detailed report on the potential reduction in scrap generated. Using this information, customers can make informed decisions around the use of SELF technology.
What are the benefits of adding Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories’ SELF technology to steel ladles?
SELF technology can be used to create a unique and long-lasting profile at the bottom of a steel ladle. This profile results in optimized steel flow while minimizing the impact of vortex and drain, and considerably reducing the retention of steel and scrap generated at the end of continuous casting.
