Aluminium manufacturing presents some of the world’s most challenging operational environments, for equipment and people. Our advanced solutions in refractory, fibre, and microporous are chosen to fulfil critical applications in furnaces and molten transfer applications.
Partnering with industry leaders, we have developed technologies and systems for furnace linings, ladles and crucibles that will achieve energy savings, increase capacity, enhance the lifecycle performance of your equipment and improve safety for your people.
Melting and Holding Furnaces
Non-Wetting fibres and monolitihics designed to create efficient processes; to improve energy, safety and operational performance.
Our leading casting tip technology provides low to zero defects which enables higher yields for manufacturing output.
Carbon Bake Furnace
Reducing atmospheres, alkali vapors, high and long temperature cycles and mechanical abuse, demands a refractory solution that can withstand the harsh environment. Kaolite, Firelite, Kao-Tuff and Alcast monolitihcs exceed the challenge.
Superwool® fibres, our market leading low biopersistent high-temperature thermal insulating solutions are favoured by the aluminium industry for its excellent thermal performance and resistance to aluminium wetting.
Superwool LBP Fibres can be found in our Boards and Shapes that are flexible and rigid to support applications such as sleeves, cones, ladles, and launders.
Our complete line of Coatings and Mastics, like our Superwool Sealcoat™ HT offer additional lining protection to the furnace and door and in maintenance conditions where online and offline hot-spot solutions are required.
WDS® Ultra™ and LambdaFlex® Super Microporous products are ideal for insulation of the aluminium melting furnace and when the need to increase volume in transfer or poring ladles is required.
Refractory Monolithics like Morflo®, Hicast™, Alcast™, Higun™, Plascast™ and Plasgun™ have proven performance for areas within the manufacturing environment of aluminium. With features like non-wetting to molten aluminium to superb resistant to mechanical impact and thermal shock.
These thermally superior material properties allow us to engineer effective and reliable thermal management systems that maintain optimal temperature distribution inside the furnace, ladle, crucible or inside the casting process for an improved life of the applications.
