From the cast house floor to iron runners and ladles, Fibretech's unique range of stainless steel fibres for the iron making industry offer:
- Improved refractory performance
- Lower installation costs
- Better operating efficiency
- Lower refractory costs and increased
operating plant availability
Blast furnace refractories are repeatedly bombarded with hot air (thermal shock) and charging of iron ore, coke etc (mechanical shock). Fibre reinforced refractory will resist these forces which otherwise crack and spall castable, shortening its working life and increasing maintenance costs.
In addition Ladle charging, lance injection and pouring operations cause refractory to crack and spall. In these applications fibres can considerably extend service life by strengthening the refractory.
