The practice of using castable to line steel ladles at U. S. Steel, Gary has been a success. The technological barriers to reliably cast the linings and for the castables to reliably perform have been overcome; currently, the ladle linings at both No. 1 and No. 2 Shops are almost exclusively castable. More work must now be done to improve the practice and make it even more economical.
