Slag Removal Equipment

During metal fabrication, small pieces of molten steel sometimes melt and adhere to the product when it cools. Metal fabricators refer to these melted pieces as slag or dross. Removing slag from the product is critical for a smooth coating and finishing process.

While some fabricators remove slag manually with a tool, some grinding equipment can remove it automatically, saving significant time in manufacturing.

Timesavers slag grinders are designed for heavy dross removal created by plasma tables. The slag grinder is offered in different duty cycles. The 12 Series SG is available for a one-shift operation while the 22 Series is more heavy-duty and could be used in a two-shift operation.

The 42 Series with a Hammerhead would be used in a three-shift, 24/7 operation.
