Slag handling cranes

| Tested in harsh environments

A slag handling crane distributes slag – a by-product of the metallurgical smelting process – along conveyor lines as the material is sorted through the slag bunker and loaded into trucks. Slag is highly abrasive and efficient handling requires protection from a harsh operating environment.

A Konecranes slag handling crane is engineered for this specific type of bulk material handling, with corrosion, moisture and heat resistance, as well as the hard durability and reliability Konecranes is known for in tough lifting conditions. Fully automated or operated manually from a central control room, its capacity is 4 to 17 tons with typical spans from 10 to 16 meters.
