In order to develop a ladle with excellent thermal insulation properties, a new structure ladle with a heat insulation nanomaterial lining was proposed and with it as the research object. The temperature ﬁeld of new structure ladle and traditional ladle under two different working conditions of ladle baking and steel holding were analyzed by ANSYS after the establishment of ladle threedimensional ﬁnite element model. The analysis results show that the temperature distribution of new structure ladle is better than that of traditional ladle under two different working conditions, and the heat loss of the new structure ladle is less than the traditional ladle, this indicates that the thermal insulation property of new structure ladle is superior to the traditional ladle. Then the inﬂuence factors of the new structure ladle temperature ﬁeld was analyzed based on the analysis results of the new structure ladle temperature ﬁeld. The analysis results show that, when the nano-materials thermal conductivity coefﬁcient reduced by 80%, the temperature distribution of the new structure ladle is more balanced, and the maximum temperature of the new structure ladle is further reduced, namely, the heat loss of new structure ladle becomes smaller, which means that the thermal insulation property of the new structure ladle has been further improved.
