Treatment Ladles for the Production of Ductile (S.G.) Iron

Acetarc treatment ladles are designed to give optimum performance whilst the ladle is operation and also for ease of maintenance and ladle preparation.

Any ladle can be used to make S.G. (Ductile) iron but the small investment in buying a ladle that is specifically designed for the in-ladle treatment process will soon pay for itself by offering:

  • Consistent results
  • Better casting quality
  • Improved yield
  • Longer fade time
  • Reduced alloy costs
  • Reduced fume
  • Reduced slag creation
  • Lower temperature losses
  • Safer ladle operation
  • Ease of ladle operation
