Smooth operating processes in steelworks and aluminium plants would be unthinkable without highly modern and technically sophisticated break-out machines. Holtmann offers break-out machines developed for steel and raw iron as well as the aluminium industry, respectively with their own concept. These highly specialised machines are intended for removing excess residues, slag and refractory materials, for example from steel and raw iron ladles. A precision break-out machine from Holtmann also reliably removes the slag from electric furnaces and converters as well as the spouts of mixer wagons. Both in hot and cold areas of raw iron plants, steelworks and aluminium plants, a break-out machine from Holtmann can be precisely adapted to the respective working environment and used economically.
