Metallurgical mould charging crane

The metallurgical mould charging bridge cranes are intended for transporting and dumping a mould with burden or feedings into open-hearth furnaces and basic oxygen furnaces of steel shops of metallurgical enterprises, as well as for transfer operations during furnaces repair and maintenance.

Depending on mould design, the main trolley has essentially different structures: for moulds, which are a scoop and which are unloaded through an open end, they apply trolleys with a lifting mechanism, consisting of two winches with four suspensions or with four-hook traverse which provide a scoop incline during its unloading – scrap charging into a furnace. In this case the crane has the second name – scrap charging cranes. They are intended for operations with large scoops for scrap loading into basic oxygen furnaces. Their lifting capacity, as a rule, is more than 100 tones. For not very big lifting capacities (not exceed 50 tones) the mould charging crane is equipped with an auxiliary trolley or an auxiliary hoist on the main trolley, intended for operations with a magnet, by which the crane loads the mould.

If the mould is a bucket with a slide controlled gate, its transportation is carried out by the main trolley with a lifting mechanism, consisted of a winch with a suspension or two-hook traverse. These buckets, as a rule, have big size and big (more than 100 tones) crane lifting capacity.

During crane units packaging, we take into consideration the specifics of the Customer’s manufacturing process, as well as individual requirement according to the technical specification. During bridge metallurgical mould charging crane manufacturing, we use components of leading manufactures and reliable suppliers, including the Customer’s wishes and recommendations.
