Refractory materials and lining reliability are critical factors for increasing the performance of a furnace or thermal chambers used for other industrial processes (e.g., kilns, heaters, incinerators.) Not only can the right refractory lining optimize production yield and minimize energy costs, but it also can establish the basis for consistent high performance of a furnace over the performance life of a refractory lining, in some cases for as long as 20 years. However, it is not uncommon
Understand the Common Causes of Refractory Failure
It is not uncommon for furnace lining material to fail, resulting in loss of thermal energy, reduced performance, or even a complete outage. Informed collaboration with refractory material suppliers can minimize risk and improve furnace reliability.
