Refractories: ladle shrouds, slide gate plates and other materials produced by “EuroTechMet” company

Each consumer of refractory products is given a chance to use innovative proposals on beneficial terms, developed in the result of close cooperation between “EuroTechMet”, Indian and Polish producers.


The Polish company "Ropczyce S.A." offers to acquire a wide range of products, which are used for lining of electric arc furnaces of all types and of different capacities.


The Indian company "IFGL Refractories Ltd" presents the following production:

  • CCM flow control refractories for steel plants;

  • Refractories for ladle purging blocks.

The enterprise "Ropczyce-Rus" produces refractory metallurgical materials, which are presented in the form of cast products, such as partitions for tundish.

Lining of main units of steelmaking production

Due to the activities of “EuroTechMet”, all basic units and auxiliary equipment of steelmaking and electric steelmaking industries, as well as some blast-furnace units and thermal units of cement industry, are provided with lining.

Refractory materials: application

Refractories are represented by constructional materials with specific properties, which cannot be avoided if there is a need to build heating and melting furnaces or aggregates, or if it is required a lining of various devices in any industry. Refractories withstand different temperature conditions and environments. Refractories with particular characteristics are created for use in specific conditions.

CCM Ladle Shrouds

Ladle shrouds are installed when casting steel between ladle and tundish. Their purpose is to prevent the secondary oxidation of steel at this stage of casting.

Metal flow control is carried out with the help of refractory products of cylindrical shape, such as monoblock stopper.


Slide gate collector and ladle shroud are not tightly linked up. Because of this, the probability of air ingress into the ladle shroud increases.


n order to avoid air ingress, it is recommended to feed argon into the joint between slide gate and ladle shroud by means of a distributor ring located above the joint.

Slide gate plates: application features

Binded plates are located in the slide gates, which help to shut off the steel-casting channel at the moment when molten metal is tapped from the steel ladle.


This product is pre-fitted and worn in to each working pair, what increases the lifetime by two heats. In the slide gates they are accurately fixed and precisely centered in the pouring holes by means of projections made on the bandages for installation.


The possibility to repair slide gate plates gives an opportunity for their longer use. Due to the efficient use of plates, labor costs are reduced and it is created conditions under which the cleanness of cast steel increases.
