SEN EZ-Set Chop Gate

We produce one of the most reliable and time-tested solutions for properly setting the ceramic Sub-Entry Nozzle (SEN) to ensure proper alignment. It then chops the SEN, and seals off the flow of steel to prevent leakage.

Our products are trusted by notable manufacturer Vesuvius, and in fact are included in all of their new system installs. The SEN EZ Set Chopgate is a must-have for all steel manufacturers.

If you’d like to find out how our SEN EZ Set Chopgate can improve your steel casting, contact our team.

Ladle Shroud Manipulator


The ALC ladle shroud manipulator comes in automatic and semi-automatic configurations, providing safe and reliable attachment of the ladle shroud on the nozzle of the ladle slide’s gate.

This ensures easy attachment to custom-fit your factory’s configuration, improves the speed for the attachment of the ladle shroud and increases operator safety.

This robust system allows long booms to maximize distance between operator and ladle nozzle, pneumatics or hydraulics used for up/down and rotate actions minimizing operator strain injuries.

It is adjustable upwards force up to 1200 lbf, and follows the ladle raise/lower and gate open/close motion while maintaining desired sealing force. Includes a mobile shroud storage rack from which shroud is picked up to further minimize strain injuries, and an emergency disconnect system allowing boom to “float” down preventing shroud breakage, injury or damage.
