Ladle Carrying
Ladle Carrying

The transportation of molten metal from the iron and steelmaking processing facilities to the caster by custom-built ladle carriers

Transporting ladles of molten metal from the iron and steelmaking processing facility, where levels of heat and dust are at their highest, to various locations within the site is among the most dangerous of the on-site services.

As the world leader in ladle carrying, with multiple operations across the globe, we have developed comprehensive safe working practices and equipment specifications to manage ladle transportation to the highest safety and reliability standards.  Where appropriate, our vehicles are fitted with trackers, use thermal imaging devices to monitor the integrity of the ladle lining and shell temperature, and utilize special fire suppression and personnel escape systems.

Harsco Environmental operates numerous types of carriers to transport the ladles, depending on the specific configuration of the site. Where space is restricted, and flexibility is required, road-based carriers are used.
