The QT170 series of ladle slide gates offer a state-of-the-art technology engineered to suit all steel plants requirements.
This slide gate can be installed on any ladle using a customisable adaptor plate and is designed for bore sizes up to 70mm.
The new technology of self opening door allows trouble free access to the refractory components and tensioning elements.
A unique assembly principle, as well as the built-in safety features, allow reliable operation and extended mechanical life time.
The QT170 has been designed for “no tool” operation to enhance security and reliability as well as optimizing the time for changing of the refractory components.
The octagonal shaped plates, designed by finite elements and engineered to allow optimal stress distribution, are hold with a set of magnets and do not need any further clamping devices.
The unique and concentric configuration of the heat resistant tension elements guarantee optimal face pressure distribution and highest refractory performance.
An easy access to the ladle bottom through a double hinge is they key to simple check-up and maintenance of the spring elements.
