The system eliminates the risk of leaks and is therefore safer
Can be used in a variety of ladle sizes from 5 – 25 ton
Is suitable for use in steel or iron foundries that use static or automated casting lines
Easy to maintain
Is very robust and has been tested by more than 3,000 heats without gate failure
