Tundish Exchangeable System

The exchangeable nozzle system consists of a fixed top nozzle and an interchangeable bottom nozzle in each tundish line. The upper nozzle is located inside the hard liner and transfers the steel to the lower nozzles which control the melt flow.

Tundish Exchangeable System benefits:

  • Improved casting operator safety
  • Improved metallurgical process quality
  • Enables longer casting sequences
  • Flexibility and ability to reduce the casting speed by changing the nozzle diameter or closing strands to reduce metal flow
