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.
The focus has moved to (intermediate) repairs on those areas where the condition is at its worst. These are typically the furnace stack lining, the tap hole areas and the hearth ring walls & bottom. HeatTeQ is able to offer you complete repair scenarios for those repairs. HeatTeQ works with strategic partners for demolition and cleaning out the furnace and for stack gunning or shotcreting work. We have experience with different furnace designs and refractory materials and are able to give you an unbiased opinion on repair options.
