Ladle Sliding Gate Valves based on FLO-CON

Type XX15/16/17 – hydraulic clamping

Sliding gate valve Type 17

Based on the known benefits of the FLO-CON system this mechanism provides: 

  • robust design, suitable for steel plant
  • additional security
  • ease of handling

The mechanism is clamped by means of a light hydraulic cylinder

TYPE STROKE ø Width Height Length *
3117 90 20 - 40 600 870 280
4217 114 25 - 60 600 1080 280
6317 152 50 - 90 600 1205 280

Dimensions in mm / * Heat shield including

All springs are mounted on the pressure plate. Advantages:

  • The exchange of a complete set is provided with one handle
  • Optimum distribution of the contact pressures on the refractory plate

3 – Plate System Model XX17.3

Based on Model 4217 / 6317

Stroke: 130 / 152 mm
Height: Standard-Height + 30 mm
Clamping of the Mechanism: hydraulic
(Standard 4217 / 6317)

Refractories:

  • Top plate > standard (4217 or 6317)
  • The regulating middle plate has the same outer dimensions as the Top and bottom plate.
  • The fixed bottom plate is equal to the bottom plate of the 2 plate mechanism.
TYP HUB ø Length Height Width
4217.3 130 25-60 310 1080* 600
6317.3 152 50-90 310 1205* 600

Dimensions in mm / * Incl. Cylinder Support

The mounting plate is equal to the mounting plate of the Model 4217 / 6317.
Therefore, changing to the 3 or 2 plate mechanism is easy.

Type 3150/4200/6300 – traditional ladle sliding gate valves

Sliding gate valve type XX00

Traditional system based on FLO-CON

2-plate system
Type 3150 / 4200 / 6300 + 4212 / 6312

Traditional 3-plate mechanism

Based on model 4200 / 6300

Stroke: 114 / 152 mm
Height: Standard-Height + 30 mm
Clamping of the Mechanism: manual
(Standard 4200 / 6300)

Refractories:

  • Top plate > standard (4200 or 6300)
  • The regulating middle plate has the same outer dimensions as the Top and bottom plate.
  • The fixed bottom plate is equal to the bottom plate of the 2 plate mechanism.
TYP HUB ø Length Height Width
4300 114 25-60 305 750 470
6300.3 152 50-90 305 830 470

Dimensions in mm

The mounting plate is equal to the mounting plate of the Model 4200 / 6300.
Therefore, changing to the 3 or 2 plate mechanism is easy.

Conversion of 2-plate version on a 3 plates version

With the technology of Knöllinger it is possible to convert a traditional FLO-CON unit 4200/6300 or XX17 into a 3-plate version.
