Refractory Repairs

Refractories are a very significant cost element on the construction of furnaces and do require occasional maintenance and even downtime for repair, which is never a welcome prospect for any operation manager or business owner. We at Therser fully understand how critical a component your refractory linings are to the operation of your business and how urgently it must be brought back into service with as short an outage duration as possible.

Typical Refractory Problems

Symptoms vary depending on the type of furnace and its primary application. In gas furnaces, for example, damage to the refractory may present symptoms such as flame impingement or heat tracking behind the refractory. Anchor failure is a common cause and can be evidenced by the refractory moving away from the restraining wall.
