Ladle Metallurgical Furnace Roofs

Many aspects of the design and construction of SYSTEMS Spray-Cooled™ equipment demonstrate inherent advantages. One case in point is the application of our Spray-Cooled™ technology to the Ladle Metallurgical Furnace roof. The continuous plate hot face formed into either a conical surface or a domed surface hinders the adherence of slag on the hot face for cleaner heat refinement and less maintenance efforts for steel mill personnel. The independent containment covering provides for cooling of all roof penetrations for the distance from the hot face to the outside surface. Combined with all of the many technological, Safety, environmental, operational and maintenance benefits of our Spray-Cooled™ equipment, SYSTEMS Spray-Cooled™ LMF furnace roofs have proven to be another one of our successful applications for melt shops.

  • Continuous plate hot face resists slag adherence for cleaner heat refinement operations.
  • Less slag adherence reduces cleaning and rebuilding efforts
  • Light weight facilitates minimal lifting peripherals
  • One-piece construction provides maximum flexibility in locating, modifying, adding, and removing operating, inspection, and monitoring openings.
  • One-piece construction provides for a cleaner, GREENER melt shop environment.
