KT-Grant designs and builds specialty engineered equipment for a variety of Steel Industry applications.
KT Grant designs and builds the GEF-530 top mount machine to accommodate electric arc furnaces with diameters from 10 to 35 feet and capacities up to 400 tons.
Wireless remote-controlled technology allows personnel to work safely from a secure location above the furnace, away from heat and falling debris. There is no need for personnel to enter the furnace at any time.
Careful, controlled material removal extends refractory life during furnace lining patches. The GEF-530 machine typically removes an entire lining in just six to eight hours depending on furnace tonnage, reducing furnace repair downtime significantly.
The specialty engineered KT-Grant system uses a quick-change adapter with the GOM-360BDRE Series II machine. It efficiently removes the original taphole and inserts a new one, holding it in place for safe installation.
The KT-Grant system eliminates the need for an overhead crane and crane operator and allows personnel to work safely, away from falling molten metal.
Taphole removal typically takes three to five minutes and the entire taphole change out process takes just 20 to 30 minutes, increasing production availability and gaining one additional heat per taphole change.
This precision process also eliminates surround block damage.
The GOM-360BDRE Series II machine hot cleans ladles efficiently, removing skulls and refractory.
Wireless remote-controlled technology allows personnel to work safely at ground level, outside of an equipment cab, with a full view of the inside of the ladle.
KT-Grant equipment enables careful ladle hot clean or refractory lining removal, eliminating damage to the safety lining. The process typically takes less than one hour to complete.
The GOM-360BDRE Series II precision bit carefully extracts porous plugs and punches out the well blocks and upper nozzles.
The KT-Grant Slag Door Pusher uses a single or dual stage boom design with 8’-16’ stroke, eliminating mobile equipment and operator exposure near the slag door or slag off area while also improving breast block refractory life.
The base structure is floor-mounted using bolts, or pinned for quick unit removal.
The unit has proportional control with pedestal panel mount or remote control. Optional controls limit swing, hoist, and boom movement. The SDP operation is very effective using joystick control.
The GOM-360BDRE Series II machine, with its thirty foot reach, cleans tundishes efficiently, removing skulls and refractory material.
Wireless remote-controlled technology allows personnel to work safely at ground level, with a full view of the tundish.
KT-Grant equipment enables careful refractory removal, typically in less than thirty minutes, with minimal damage to the ladle safety lining and slag sensors.
