Series 1080 Geared, Covered, Tapered Ladles.

Geared, covered tapered ladle with square bail.

Modern series 1080 ladles with their worm and worm wheel gearings reduce the operator's work to a minimum.

Further increasing the highly efficient, high production capacity of the ladles described and illustrated here are MODERN, detachable, pull-back covers. The small, additional investment inladles of covered design quickly is liquidated by the improved quality of hotter metal poured.

Covers, which help to deflect heat away from the ladle operators, readily are detached to ease the task of lining both covers and ladle bowls.

Covers are shipped fully lined.

Tapered bowl design affords maximum clearance between ladle and mold where molds are set-up closely together. Also the entire lining is readily removed from a tapered bowl.

All-welded bowl construction eliminates all possible dead-weight while adding great strength.

Ladle-tilting torque is effectively transmitted from gearing to trunnion-stubs and shank ring to minimize bowl distortion and lengthens ladle life.

300 to 4,000 lb
