Torpedo Vehicle

The liquid metal from the blast furnace is first subjected to sulfur removaland alsoto silica and phosphorus removal. These processes simplify the refinement process. Liquid metal is transported to steel plant by transfer boats or torpedo vehicles. Within the steel plant, liquid metal can be stored in these pots or torpedo cars, heated in convertible liquid metal mixers. Through interim storage, the composition differences in the liquid metal are eliminated. In addition, these mixers reduce fluctuations between liquid metal production and demand.
