MORTAR AND CASTABLE

The correct selection of the laying and jointing mortars is essential to the durability and performance of the refractory linings. The characteristics and composition of the mortars must correspond to those of the brick. McKeown works diligently to accomplish this for our customers.

TORPEDO LADLE CAR

Hot metal is conveyed into torpedo ladles which are positioned underneath the casthouse, waiting to be transported to the steelmaking plant. The torpedo ladle commonly has a cylindrical shape with conical ends and are filled or emptied through an oval shaped opening in the top of the torpedo ladle. The torpedo ladle cars are designed for the least amount of heat loss.
