Phoenix Services LLC is an affiliate of the Apollo funds dedicated to sustainable solutions and maximizing efficiency for the global steel industry with minimal environmental impact, and always with a personal touch.

Pot Carrying

We transport slag pots from the melt shop to slag dumping stations using slag pot carriers. We dump pots for quenching and further processing, then slag pots are returned empty to the melt shop for the next cycle. A slag “cushion” is often placed in the bottom of the pot before return and we spray pots with a releasing agent to increase the pot’s life span.

Pit Digging

We provide specialized loaders equipped with chains and fire suppression to dig slag pits and transport the slag for further processing. These services are offered for an EAF pit, BOF pit and/or LMF pit. We continually aim to optimize heat times and reduce yield losses over the course of a partnership.

Melt Shop Clean-Up

We clean all slag and scrap spills, breakouts, and splashed materials from the melt shop floor and haul away material for further processing.

Refractory Tear-Out

We remove spent refractory materials from various melt shop vessels, clean tap holes, and more. Dedicated, on demand refractory tear-out services help reduce costly mobilization fees and other expenses associated with off-site services.

  • Ladle: Partial, full or lip cleaning
  • Tundish: Partial or full
  • Furnace: BOF and EAF solutions provided

Tundish Removal

We clean tundish dump areas, picking up and removing dumped tundish for further processing. We also utilize a proprietary tundish dumper to carry and dump liquid tundish, reducing metallic loss and the need for additional tear-outs.

Under Furnace Cleaning

We provide specialized equipment, including remote controlled loaders, to fit into tight locations within the melt shop for removal of materials, allowing for more up-time and increased operator safety.
