Application Sheet


Application: Shell and End Plate Material in Steel Induction Melters

Product: Refractory Sheet Type RS-100

Application Information: In this application, Refractory Sheet Type RS-100 is used in the steel melting operations as shell and end plate material in steel induction melters. RS-100 is a replacement for NAD-11 and Transite II which tend to crack and breakdown at the service temperature of 1202-1382C(700-800F).

Benefits: The benefits of using RS-100 in this application are:

RS-100 withstands the service temperature and outperforms both NAD-11 and Transite II, therefore less downtime for repair is needed. This translates into overall cost savings.
