Ladle Hooks & Ladle Beams
Ladle beams equipped with ladle hooks or J hooks are most commonly used to safely handle and transport molten metal. They can also be used to handle and transport rolls of material such as paper rolls. Ladle hooks and ladle beams are extremely heavy duty and are designed to withstand the severe and extreme environments in which they are found. Ladle hooks are available in a variety of sizes and capacities, up to over 80 Tons.

Ladle Beam and Ladle Hook Design
A ladle beam consists of a plate style lifting beam and two integrated ladle or J hooks. The ladle hooks are laminated, riveted and welded to eliminate the possibility of crack propagation, thereby increasing the durability and average service life of the ladle beam and ladle hooks. Ladle hooks can be equipped with a large variety of optional features to help satisfy any lifting or rigging application. Some of these options include:
- Removable Wear Strips
