Due to defect of poor heat preservation property, the common steel ladles can’t pour numbers of boxes by one bag for special steel, such as high manganese steel which is sensitive to casting temperature, casting grain size and mechanical properties. The common steel ladles cooling fast often cause cold ladle and misrun. For better insulation, a vacuum insulation layer was added to the ladle to maintain the temperature of the molten steel, reduce the heat absorption of molten steel by ladle and reduce heat exchange with the outside world. The test results showed that the vacuum-lined steel ladle had a desired insulation performance which was much better than ordinary ladle. It improved the properties of castings and also had distinct energy - saving effect. Its good insulation performance brought a series of advantages, such as heating up fast during preheating of ladle, pouring temperature of molten steel could be further reduced, refining the casting grain size, improving the mechanical properties of the casting and wear resistance. Good insulation performance also could extend pouring time. At the same time, the low temperature ladle wall brought good working environment to foundry workers.
