Ladle turret scales are used for example in continuous casting facilities where the liquid steel is cast into continuous strands. The weighing equipment is used in the ladle turret, tundish and outgoing roller table to determine the weight and control the process.
The incredibly robust ladle turret scales are manufactured for the prevailing harsh ambient conditions. They are not affected by shock, interfering forces or huge fluctuations in temperature.
Typical applications include the manufacture of slabs, a metallic semi-finished product made from steel, aluminium or copper. Slabs are used to produce sheets or belts. What’s special about them is their shape: their width and length are many times their thickness. Slabs are produced by casting or rolling. The aforementioned continuous casting procedure is the most common form of production.
