Consistent with the drilling machine, the stationary TMT clay gun for non-ferrous and ferro-alloy applications has been designed in all details to cope with maximum ambient temperatures of more than 1,700°C in the reduction furnace. All heat-sensitive components have been systematically protected from the effects of heat. Depending on the space available, the equipment can be installed to the left and right of the runner or in a space-saving arrangement on one runner side together with the drilling machine.
An outstanding technical feature of the TMT clay gun is the patented kinematics that ensure a linear approach to the tap hole and maximum contact pressure. This enables an efficient plugging process and safe and reliable execution of the work. This solution is often used for furnaces with one tap hole.
