Slag ladle insulation

Stokes, N. and Jenkins, D. (1994) Slag ladle insulation. [Study Group Report]



Slag from Pasminco's lead-zinc smelters, which is rich in zinc, is transferred in thirteen tonne capacity ladles from the blast furnace to the slag fuming furnace. The cycle time is about three hours. The Study Group was asked to examine whether heat could be conserved by some insulation strategy, without at any stage overheating the steel of the ladle.
