Slag Pit Digging

Excavation and removal of slag from slag lagoons and transporting to other areas of the site for further processing

Slag pit digging is the breaking, excavating and removal of cooled slag from slag pits or lagoons.  Each slag pit is left to cool until the slag is solid – but still red hot – after which it is dug up by specialized equipment and transported to other areas of the site for further processing. In addition to more traditional approaches, we operate controlled cooling technologies and pursue continuous improvement to develop new innovative methods of cooling slag.
