Mining Zimbabwe recently posted the truck above carrying molten steel on social media and asked our readers what it was. It is a Slag pot carrier which is transporting Molten steel in a Slagpot. There are sometimes referred to as Molten steel tractors or carriers.
Slag pot carriers are available in a wide range of models and capacities up to 227 tonnes handling slag pots up to 45 cubic m.
The slag pots and chill moulds are manufactured from either heat-resistant cast iron or spheroidal graphite cast iron to provide long-lasting high-quality solutions. They are also suited for a number of processes, which include lead, aluminium, iron, steel, chrome, manganese, copper and other smelting applications. Using positive hydraulic control, the pot is tipped to pour molten slag into pits for cooling and processing
Slag pots are not easy to deform and stick pot, which has significant characteristics with heating and thermal fatigue resistance, process stability and maturity of the technology.
It’s fit for many kinds of steelmaking mills, aluminium smelting plant, machinery manufacturer etc. see images below:-
