Ladle Lifts for Firebrick Re-Bricking in the Steel Industry
Ladle lifts replaced the traditional scaffolding used in the re-bricking process at many steel factories as a safer and more reliable option. Refractory firebrick in pour ladles requires continual replacement, and the Handling Specialty ladle lift was designed as the perfect solution. The lift is loaded into the ladle using a crane and can be moved to the next ladle requiring re-bricking. These two-stage scissor lifts are designed to withstand harsh melt shop environments, improving efficiency in the factory.
This custom model also includes three sets of aluminum extensions which connect to the lip along the outside of the platform. Each extension allows for larger size ladles to be re-bricked, whether oval or round.
The heavy–duty scissor lift raises and lowers the operator and bricks via a hand-held controller for ease of operation while handling loads of up to 10,000 lbs.
