My invention relates to slag pots used for con
veying molten slag from a furnace to a slag dump,
and particularly to an improved construction of
Slag pots in general are made in the shape of an

and a rounded bottom. Such pots are generally
equipped with a plurality of seats intermediate
‘ the top and bottom of the‘ pot by which they may
10 be mounted on a yoke provided with trunnions
which provide a pivot on which the slag pot may
be tipped while resting on suitable supports on
a slag car.
In service, the high temperatures‘ to which slag
15' pots‘ are subjected cause stresses in the walls of
the pots and eventually cause the walls to crack
and thereafter to deteriorate rapidly.
In addition, these high temperatures cause the
walls of the pot to expand, particularly in the
20 region immediately below the supporting'yoke.
As long as such expansion is not excessive, no
harm occurs, but in practice the walls of the pot
are frequently strained beyond their elastic limit
and acquire a permanent bulge or set. When
25 slag is handled and dumped from such a pot in a
molten condition no harm results from the pres
sure of a bulge in the side walls. However, slag

The pot is also provided with eyes 5 whereby the
pot may be transferred by means of a crane to 15
and from the slag car.
Thelwall I contains a plurality of inwardly ex
tending corrugations 6 disposed vertically around
the circumference of the pot. These corrugations
begin at a point ‘I somewhat above the bottom of 20
the slag pot and terminate at a point 8 somewhat
below the top of the pot. These corrugations

striction of the pot above the bulge prevents the
35 removal of the skull by merely tipping the pot,
and it is necessary to break up the skull with
sledges or orowbars before it can be removed from
the pot.
The object of my invention is to provide a slag
40 pot so constructed that cracking, which causes
the pot to deteriorate rapidly, and bulging, which
makes the skull di?icult to remove, are eliminated.
Other objects of my invention will be apparent
from the drawings and from the following de
45 scription.
In the drawings:

ing vertical corrugations I0 disposed between the
inwardly extending corrugations 6 and having a
maximum depth at point I I on the rim of the 35
pot and terminating at point I2 intermediate the
top and the bottom of the pot.
As heretofore stated, slag pots of ordinary design
frequently crack in service because of the ex
pansion of the walls of the pot resulting from the 40
intense heat of the molten slag contained in the
pot. Moreover, such pots tend to become bellied
immediately below the supporting yoke on which
the pot is mounted in the slag car, with the
results hereinabove described.
It will be seen 45
that with my arrangement of corrugation there
is provided the greatest number of corrugations at
the portion of the pot subject to the highest tem

my invention, however, these results do not follow.
The inwardly extending corrugations 6 and the
outwardly extending corrugations I0 act as
stiffening members which reinforce the wall I
and tend to prevent the bellying of the wall. 55
