Støtek Transport Ladle
The Støtek transport ladle is a clever, flexible, and energy-efficient choice when transporting liquid aluminum either by truck or crane. It has a capacity of up to 1,000 kg/2,204 lb.
The transport ladle is build with a robust welded steel construction containing layers of high efficiency thermal insulation to ensure a minimal drop in the metal temperature during transport.
Thanks to two hydraulic cylinders, the ladle is tiltable and can be operated from the truck.
When moved by crane, the ladle is designed with a hand gear box for tilting.
The transport ladle can be produced as a crucible furnace with heating elements mounted around the crucible. Then, the ladle can also be used as a melting and holding furnace with a melting capacity of up to 450 kg/992 lb and a holding capacity of up to 1,800 kg/3,968 lb.
Furthermore, the ladle can be fitted with an electric heating element in a lid system with separate temperature control to keep the ladle hot when not in use.
