Continuous Slab Caster
This is a facility for casting molten steel into semi-finished products(slabs) by continuously cooling, solidifying molten steel – which was melted and ingredients adjusted in a blast furnace, electric arc furnace, direct reduction furnace, etc. – and cutting them into given lengths. The casted semi-finished products are then transported to the next process at the rolling facility. The casted semi-finished products can be in various sizes. Those with a thickness of between 120mm-600mm and a width of 700mm or more are called slabs. Final products from slabs include thin plates, thick plates and pipes.
