Ladle Liners

Morgan MMS Salamander ladle liners are designed for use with the steel ladle shells used in metal foundries.  Made from super clay graphite or Excel silicon-bonded silicon carbide and available in a wide range of sizes, these high endurance liners are easy to fit and offer long life with no need for patching.  They can be supplied in standard or bottom-pour tea-pot designs.

Applications

Salamander ladle liners can be used with steel ladle shells in foundry processing of ferrous and non-ferrous metals and alloys including iron, brass, bronze and other copper alloys, aluminium, zinc and precious metals with temperatures up to 1600C (2900F). 

Performance characteristics

  • High quality liner helps keep molten metal free from gas and impurities
  • Robust construction ensures long life in harsh foundry conditions
  • Advanced materials offer high resistance to oxidation and thermal shock
  • Various bottom pour tea-pot configurations available to minimize slag and dross inclusion in the casting pours. 

Identification

Salamander ladle liners made from clay graphite are identified using the notation L, LB and LT. 

Salamander ladle liners made from silicon carbide are identified using the notation LX, LBX and LTX. 

Pattern range

Salamander ladle liners are available in a wide range of standard diameter and height sizes; from 2.4 to 156.6L brimful capacity* (clay graphite) and from 15.4 to 140.8L (silicon carbide) with custom sizes available upon request. 

All designs can be supplied in standard top-pour versions, or with a riser tube and / or cover plate for bottom-pour arrangements. 

*Please note that the working capacity is calculated as 90% of the brimful capacity when melting brass, specific gravity 8.75. 

Quality

Salamander ladle liners are made from premium grade raw materials under ISO 9001:2008 quality management system.
