In recent years, sand slinging process is being used for lining ladles in
steel plants. The slung mixes are made from naturally occurring
sands or mixture of synthetic grains with suitable binders.
In our country, ladle bricks constitute a major tonnage of fireclay
bricks in the steel plants. An attempt was made to use sand as lining
material in steel ladles to reduce the consumption of refractories and
also to save time in relining.
Work was undertaken to develop sand slinging mixes of proper
composition utilizing indigenous sand. The mixes were tried in steel
ladles, used for transferring blown metal from bessemer shop and hot
metal from mixer to open hearth furnaces.
