|20140203051||NOZZLE EXCHANGE DEVICE AND NOZZLE UNIT - A nozzle unit for use in a nozzle exchange device in a continuous metal casting apparatus comprises a loading opening and guiding means for sliding the nozzle unit through said opening into casting position with respect to the nozzle exchange device, wherein said nozzle unit comprises a nozzle plate made of a refractory material clad in a metal can. In order to prevent said plate from being presented to the loading opening with the wrong orientation, i.e., with the trailing edge first, said plate is provided with at least one lug at or adjacent the trailing edge, said at least one lug disposed such that the loading opening allows engagement of the base of the nozzle plate but not of the at least one lug.||07-24-2014|
|20120211531||POURING NOZZLE AND ASSEMBLY OF SUCH A POURING NOZZLE WITH AN INNER NOZZLE - A pouring nozzle includes a generally rectangular shaped plate and a tube extending from the bottom surface of the plate. The nozzle includes a pouring channel emerging close to the downstream end of the tube through outlets formed in the lateral walls of the tube. The outlets are disposed symmetrically on either side of the axis of the tube. The axis of the outlets is substantially parallel to a pair of sides of the plate. The orifice is oblong and has a major axis and a minor axis. The minor axis of the orifice is parallel to the axis of the outlets. The pouring nozzle may be assembled with an inner nozzle. This nozzle and its assembly with an inner nozzle may be used for the continuous casting of steel from a tundish towards a continuous casting mould.||08-23-2012|
