Hot Skull Breakage

Hot slag doesn’t always break immediately after leaving the pot and has to cool for some days before it can be broken. This requires a lot of space on site and is thus regarded as an inconvenience, as the processing and removal of slag limits a pit’s recycling capacity.

Fractum’s breakers allow for the breakage of slag skull when it is still red hot, reducing the cooling time to one fifth. As a result, skulls can be transported from the slag pit for further processing within 24 hours.
The added advantage is that the need for wheel loaders and other heavy machinery is reduced as well as the drop ball process. This positively impacts the budget and productivity levels whilst ensuring safety in the slag yard.
