Even if the housing block doesn’t have an active function in the argon purging in ladle it has a very important role in protecting the plug and it compensates for any expansions the ladle bottom may undergo. In addition to an high wear resistance, reached using only selected raw materials of high quality, the housing block must be resistant to thermal shock and elastic to stresses.
It can be realized in any geometry and strengthened with steel fibres to improve its mechanical resistance.
