Tested in harsh environments
The Konecranes slag handling crane is used to continuously distribute slag under the conveyor line to the other areas in the slag bunker. The crane is also used to load slag onto trucks during the day.
Sometimes the ferrous rejects have not been separated from the slag, causing higher requirements for the grab. To achieve better penetration into the slag, special teeth on the edges of the claws or fully closed orange peel type grabs can be used.
In advanced plants, the whole process takes place with unmanned full automation and is controlled directly from the central control room. Alternatively, loading the trucks can be done manually from the remote control station in the building or with radio control.
