Our Ausmelt lance handling system comprises a number of items. The lance trolley provides support and restraint to the in-service Ausmelt Lance. Fixed pipes included in the trolley design provide a connection point between the lance and flexible catenary hoses. A hoist or drive system enables vertical movement of the trolley and lance. Trolley guide rails are used to guide the vertical movement of the lance trolley and lance into or out of the Ausmelt Furnace. The flexible catenary hoses are used to deliver fuel, air, and oxygen to the lance via the lance valve train. The handling system also features a lance park bay for spare lance storage and maintenance.
