Our most popular ladle skimmer is the GSK-190. It utilizes a telescopic boom equipped with a paddle to skim kish/slag off the top of hot metal into slag pits or pots located below.
The GSK-190 is equipped with a vertical lift which allows the operator to control the unit in a vertical plane. This feature allows the operator to adjust the depth of the paddle for different applications. The unit is permanently mounted while still allowing the versatility to adjust for different depths.
The machine is controlled from a console unit located safely nearby, allowing proper vision. The GSK-190 can be equipped with an operator’s cab and optional air conditioning unit. A nitrogen bubbler/lance is also available which when inserted into the metal, forces the dish/slag to the front center of the ladle making skimming more productive. Various paddle types are available to suit your application.
