Shooters for BOF

To support our refractory system for Basic Oxygen Furnace (BOF) Converters, we have developed proprietary shotcrete and gunning shooters. These shooters are critical to Minteq’s ability to serve our market and enhance our customer’s operations and value. The shooters must exhibit the following qualities:

  • Robust engineering to meet the inherent challenges of the steel-making environment
  • Ease of use and operation
  • Low maintenance and high availability to lower cost and increase productivity
  • The flexibility to allow for multiple gunning and shotcrete material characteristics
  • Compact design enabling access to furnaces with limited floor space
  • Remote control for added operator safety and flexibility


We support our shooter system with advance-designed material-transport and delivery systems to optimize installation efficiency:

  • High-speed guns providing consistent, fast, and reliable material flow with unmatched delivery rates
  • Water control systems for pressurizing, heating and filtering water
  • Refined material-wetting technology for consistent, efficient installations

It is important to note that this equipment is not for sale on a stand-alone basis. By owning and operating the equipment, we ensure the proper installation of our materials to maximize durability and minimize rebound.
