Monocon’s experience and expertise in the field of tundish linings has resulted in the ability to offer tundish packages to suit any steel making process. These packages can incorporate all or any combination of the following items:
- Monolithic tundish safety lining.
- Basic tundish working linings (wet spray or dry vibratable systems).
- Installation equipment (Manual or fully Robotic/automated).
- Skilled, onsite manpower.
- Design, engineering and technical support.
- Tundish furniture and other precast shapes.
Please contact us if you would like to discuss your Tundish Lining application with our UK engineering team and/or download our Tundish Lining Refractories literature.
Applying Tundish Spray Materials
As important as it is to have a tundish spray material of high integrity it is equally important to have available the means of applying it to the permanent tundish lining. This material is applied by a specially designed spray machine in which water is mixed with dry materials and made into a free flowing homogeneous slurry. This fully wetted slurry is then pumped to a spray nozzle where it is atomised with air and sprayed effectively without rebound loss.
MONOLITE DRYING/PRE-HEATING SCHEDULE
As the MONOLITE lining can be used in a HOT or COLD tundish environment, the drying and pre-heating schedule can be adjusted accordingly. In both drying and pre-heating, care should be taken to apply heat evenly and without flame impingement directly onto the sprayed surface.
