Tundish Nozzles are used to cast the steel continuously. We can make available these Nozzles in different specifications. Tundish nozzle is used on the bottom of tundish, in conjunction with mono block stopper it controls the molten steel flow rate, stop the molten steel and adjust the flow direction.
Tundish Nozzle Advantages:
- Long casting sequence time
- Controlled casting speed
- Excellent resistance to oxidation
- Prevent clogging to improve productivity
- Special compositions of nozzles as per use in the industry
- Higher life of nozzles
Tundish nozzles are equipped with a control mechanism, such as a slide gate system, that allows for precise adjustment of the nozzle opening. This mechanism enables operators to control the steel flow according to the casting requirements, ensuring consistent quality and dimensional accuracy of the cast products. Tundish nozzles are subject to wear and erosion due to the continuous flow of molten steel. They are engineered to have good wear resistance, extending their service life and reducing the need for frequent replacements.
Tundish nozzles should provide a gas-tight seal to prevent the ingress of air or gases into the steel stream during casting. This ensures the quality and cleanliness of the final steel product. Tundish nozzles are installed and maintained by skilled operators. Proper installation, alignment, and periodic inspections are essential to ensure the effective functioning of the nozzle and prevent issues such as leakage or excessive wear.
