Hydraulic ladle tilters are supplied for ladles from 3 to 250 ton hot metal capacity. A variety of designs are available for ladles transported by rail cars and by crane. For some applications, cable winch type ladle tilters are also offered in two types. The first type utilizes the building steelwork for support. The alternate design is free-standing to allow use of an overhead hot metal or service crane.
Economy Industrial has also developed special technology to convert torpedo car ladle pouring into a smooth, variable pouring rate. The control system allows the operator to rotate the ladle smoothly, rather than jog it. A high-speed override also allows the operator to roll the car upright quickly.
