Innsulekx Insulating Powder is a new generation product (Radex) made from rice husk ash / rice hull ash. Insulating Powder (Radex – also called Ladle Covering Compound) is used in steel mills for insulation of molten metal in ladle and tundish.
The temperature of molten metal in the ladle is around 1650 degrees centigrade (3000 degrees F) and above. When this metal flows from ladle to tundish the temperature drops considerably. Without the use of insulation cover material, there may be breakdown in caster due to loss of temperature.
When Insulating Powder (Radex) – Innsulekx is spread as coating over the molten metal (about 1 inch to 2 inches thick blanket on the hot molten metal) in the ladle and tundish, it acts as a very good insulator and the temperature does not come down quickly in the tundish and ladle.
- Application of Innsulekx prevents radiation heat losses.
- Innsulekx is self-spreading and does not form a heap over the molten metal. This leads to better insulation of the metal saving energy.
- Skull formation is reduced to a large extent making the operations easier in the process of steel making in concast area.
- Application of Innsulekx prevents re-oxidation of metal.
Refractory flux and ladle flux are expensive to purchase. Insulating Powder (Ladle Covering Compound) – Innsulekx is used in all the steel mills as an economical and cost effective insulating agent on hot molten metal in steel mills. Our product range includes insulating powder (Ladle Covering Compound), nozzle filling compound, slag coagulants, and active tundish cover materials. The annual production capacity is 10,000 tons per anum. More than 95% of the total production is exported out of India. These products have been exported to USA, Europe, Russian Federation, Middle East, Africa, and Australia. Our products are well accepted by the customers all over the globe.
