NEW Gas-tight 3-Plate Ladle Sliding Gate Valve Model FT3 GT

Standard version

Clean steel with the Ladle Sliding Gate Valve Model FT3 GT

The FT3 GT is designed for customers with high demands for the quality of steel. The 3 plate sliding gate system forms a closed housing with high-temperature- resistant seals, into which inert gas can be injected at appropriate points. This shields the system against air ingress.

The gas passes through the ladle sliding gate valve, around the collector nozzle into the funnel or to the shroud. So a combination of stream and slide gate shielding is realized.

In FT3 GT emphasis was placed on safety and ease of use. Thus, the center plate is mounted in a cassette, which can be swiveled to an open position, allowing free access to the slide plate.
