The demand for quick and safe repair solutions becomes more and more important for the blast furnace operators. Downtime (loss of production) and total repair costs are to be kept to the bare minimum, plus the fact that the furnace in poor condition has to be dragged to the scheduled repair period.
Hot Blast Stoves
Apart from our activities in full stove construction, over the years, we have specialized in performing smart repairs in the hot blast stoves with the objective to have the stoves out of operation for the least amount of time possible. Most of the repair works on stoves take place on and around the hot blast outlet and ceramic burners.
Inspections are being performed on all sorts of installations, blast furnaces, hot blast stoves and coke batteries. When our customer demands information about the condition of their installation, in order to determine future life span, furnace availability and repair planning, HeatTeQ is the perfect partner.
Once surpassing an active service life of 10 to 15 years, refractory repairs, mainly at the end flues of the heating walls, are required to secure production levels and environmental compliance. We are in the fortunate situation that, over the last decades, our specialists have been involved in newbuild and repair projects featuring different coke battery designs. Since investments and regulatory restrictions for new coke oven batteries are high, quality driven repair and maintenance is crucial to secure the customers asset.
As a refractory installation company, it is important to employ people who are aware of all the aspects that determine the success of a refractory lining as intended in its application. In 2010, we started the HeatTeQ Refractory Academy. The academy was set up to train our own personnel only, but since 2012, we have opened the course for our customers and dedicated partners as well. The training is set up for (young) engineers and refractory foremen/supervisors, working in the iron making industry. The purpose of the training is to make the participants aware of the different types of installations, their behaviour and the role refractories have in these installations.
HeatTeQ has developed a new patented concept to replace a coke ovenwall, called The Fastwall Concept. Unique to this concept is that the coke ovenwall is built at an external location, instead of in the battery itself. In short, the wall is lifted while being supported by a truss structure and placed on a transport. During the lifting and transportation, hydraulic cylinders will keep the wall levelled.
