The caster’s main features are electromechanical stopper rod, submerged nozzle stream protection, mould lubrication powder automatic feeding, external mould stirrer and four-zone combined water/air-water secondary cooling system. The outfit cast sections are 150×150 mm, 200×200 mm and 150×245-mm in low and high-alloy steel grades, with a productivity of up to 125 tonnes/hour.
