Ladle ferry

    Pig iron production

    Adaptable, robust, reliable

    Operational reliability under the toughest of conditions
    Ladle ferries in steel plants transport the steel to the downstream crane or secondary metallurgy. The weighing system used must have extremely robust characteristics.
    Schenck Process weighing systems are designed for just these tough conditions. They remain unscathed in the face of the high mechanical impact of inserting the casting ladle into the ladle support, high horizontal forces resulting during insertion impact and extreme temperatures of the liquid pig iron or steel. Even dirt or slag splash have no impact on reliable operation.
    Other benefits inlude: short changeover time, quick production start-up after installation and maintenance

    Individual solutions or the complete package
    Depending on the amount of space available on the ferry, we recommend fitting RTN load cells with VEN elastomer mounts or WDI weighing discs with fixed or loose bearings on ferries with a double-frame setup.
    DWB weighbeams are perfectly suited for ferries without double frames but with ladle supports in the centre of the vehicle.
    Changing a ladle ferry to a DWB weighbeam increases operational reliability because each weighbeam is fitted with an integrated temperature sensor displayed on the control panel.
    The complete MULTILADLE package from Schenck Process is a very reliable system for ladle ferries. Since the package is fitted with infrared or radio data transfer, damage to the trailing cable installation and cable drum, for example, is avoided.
