[Non-DoD Source] Re: [RealSTMFC] Charging Ladles on flat cars


Gatwood, Elden J SAD
 

Group;

 

And another great load:  refractory shipped on pallets, banded.  The steel industry and foundries went through refractory like you wouldn’t believe. 

 

There was a great “Mr. Plaster” load I made dozens of for this purpose.

Jim;

 

They are indeed.  The refractory more often.

 

I’d venture two to several times a year, up to a couple years, but an on-going process, with so many ladles in play.

 

They were sometimes made on-site, but there were off-line makers, including Pugh, Treadwell, etc.

Elden,
  Your last sentence implies that the ladles are a "consumable" that gets replaced
fairly often ... ?

Not the same kind of ladle, but Artitech does a nice slag-ladle load, complete with blocking.
