Redesign of Refractories for the Pouring Chamber of the Tundish of a Continuous Section Caster


New equipment that has been installed in the pouring chambers of continuous-caster tundishes is discussed. The equipment upgrade ensures efficient formation of the flows of metal in the tundish and creates the conditions necessary to improve its quality.
