Iron RefractoriesRefractory Material against
We supply a full range of refractory solutions for all applications within the iron industry. Unshaped products such as castables, gunnings and rammings constitute a large proportion of our sales to the iron and steel industries. Ancillary items, such as precast shapes, tuyeres and nozzles, are also available.
- Our engineers select carefully the most appropriate refractories for each specific area of the lining. In general, mid alumina bricks are used in the upper zones with SiC and Carbon more appropriate for the bosh and tuyere band. Microporous carbon is used in the hearth and it can be supplemented with a ceramic cup.
- The refractory linings need to have thermal shock resistance, abrasion resistance, impact and corrosion resistance and if the lining is carbon-bonded, it needs to have oxidation resistance. We work closely with our customers to supply a suitable range of gunning and castable materials to repair and extend the working lining life of a Torpedo Ladle.
- Bricks demonstrating refractoriness, resistance to thermal shock and volume stability to line the ladle zones. Bricks include: Fired brick and Alumina Silicon Carbide. Castables are utilized in the spout, floor surround and as repair masses. Chemically bonded refractory castables exhibit strength and density combined with volume stability from ambient to elevated temperatures. Monolithics include: mortar, gunning mix and joint mix.
