Knöllinger FLO-TEC GmbH

In June 2002, the Knöllinger FLO-TEC GmbH was founded as a partner of Knöllinger Keramische Verschleißteile GmbH (Refractories). Having it´s headquarter in Hillscheid/Germany.

Our product range includes the traditional ladle sliding gates, based on FLO-CON, as well as on FLO-CON based, hydraulic closed generation type 17.

As an innovative company it is our aim to develop high quality products that correspond to the requirements of our customers. The fact that we employ people with an experience of many years in the FLO-CON area is a key factor for success in this field.

Furthermore we have developed a new Sliding Gate Valve type FT that is safe, easy to handle and cost-saving in maintenance. This mechanism can be operated with the new developed FT-refractory plates as well as with standard FLO-CON plates or other plates of other systems, thus giving independence to the user.

All of these mechanisms are also available as a three-plate system.

Based on the FT- 3-plate systems, the latest development stage has been designed: The "gas-tight" ladle sliding gate valve. This mechanism has been developed for customers who have particularly high demands on the steel quality. Inert gas can pass through the mechanism and lead to the ladle shroud. So a combination of stream and slide gate shielding is realized, which means maximum protection against the atmosphere. 

Our product range also includes separation / emergency slide, and precision plug jacks.
