FROM SMELTING TO HEAT TREATMENT –

Refractory competence from one source

ENGINEERING

The basis of every lining concept is the heat transition, which will determine the optimum wall construction. Extensive knowledge of thermal and corrosive loads is required. To this end, we use modern heat transition calculation programs and software systems for the calculation of thermodynamic equilibria and phase diagrams. As a manufacturer, we have access to extensive databases, which are required for these calculations.
Upon request, we are also able to carry out economic calculations of refractory linings, taking material and energy costs into account, which provides customers with the support they need to make decisions.
Based on these data, we then design the optimal wall construction and provide a standardized construction drawing of the respective unit.
