The monobox is a special prefabricated product deigned to reduce kinetic energy in the impact area caused by the steel stream from the ladle into the tundish, this , in turn optimises steel flow patterns. Advantages seen when using a monobox flow modifier can be seen below :-
• Increased safety and splash protection

AGC materials can be utilised to form thin wall items such as the saggar shown below. Such
products require resistance to thermal cycling and high strength to maintain service integrity.
