The ladles are of completely welded design and reinforced by two stiffener rings with special reinforcement in the area of the trunnions (similar to AISE-Standard No. 9). Ladle shell and Bottom plate are furnished with deOilsing holes so that humidity and Oiles generated during drying of the new lining may escape. The deOilsing holes (Ø10) shall be placed on a grid with approx. 350 mm distance. The forged trunnion pins are welded into the trunnion ring and into the ladle shell. Three ladle feet are welded to the ladle bottom to permit placing on ground floor. A tilting device is provided at the ladle bottom which is designed so that the tilting hook to the crane can be engaged and/or disengaged without manual help. The flat ladle bottom is furnished with an opening for the base plate (by others) for fixing the slide gate.
The ladle is equipped with one bayonet for fixing the porous plugs as well as the piping installation to the porous plugs.
