Ceramic welding is utilized by most glass makers to prolong the life of their furnaces’ refractories without production loss.
This market includes:
- Flat glass producers
- Container glass procedures
- Fiberglass producers
- Sodium silicate producers
- Many other specialty glass producers
Ceramic welding is utilized by most coke producers to prolong the life of their oven’s refractories with minimal production loss. Taking ovens out of service to re-brick them has a major impact on the coke producers ability to keep up with production demands. Ceramic welding is an attractive alternative because the time the oven is out of service is greatly reduced compared to “through wall” or alternative repair type.
CEMENT and MINERALS
Ceramic welding in the cement, aluminum, and copper processing industries is becoming more popular with the advent of Fuse Tech’s patent-pending technology allowing the attachment of stainless steel refractory anchors to the inside hot face of the kilns steel shell without shut down.
After anchors are attached to the shell, ceramic welding is utilized to repair the damaged refractory. Welding takes place directly onto the steel shell, directly onto and around the anchors, and is tied into the surrounding refractory that has remained intact.
Areas of Application:
- Kiln nose ring
- Kiln burner pipe
- Cooler bullnose
- Cooler walls
- Preheater cyclones and riser duct
- Firing hood and precalciner walls and roof
