We study the refractory equipment of the receiving chambers of continuous casting machines and the processes of control over the flows of metal in these chambers running in the case of casting from the steel-teeming ladle by open streams. This guarantees the possibility of effective formation of steel flows in the receiving chamber of the tundish of continuous casting machine and creates conditions for the improvement of the quality of the metal and the decrease in the number of rejected continuously cast billets.
