1 Reduce  accident and nozzle clogged.

2 By blowing argon , the content of inclusions in the slab is reduced, and the quality of the slab is improved.

3 Ensure continuous casting, reduce production  interruption ,improve  production  efficiency .

4 Good thermal shock resistance ,good abrassion and corrosion resistance of molten steel slag.

5 easy to install and no dropping.
