High Temperature Abrasion and Thermal Shock Resistance

Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories provides a wide range of cost-effective solutions to address the challenge of wear and corrosion problems encountered in heavy industry during routine plant operation. 


How effective are Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories’ rotary kiln linings in providing high temperature abrasion and thermal shock resistance?

Cristaram® low cement castable is ideal for the lining of clinker rotary kilns equipped with satellite coolers. This monolithic offers excellent abrasion resistance and resistance to corrosion b alkalis.Cristaram® can also be used to line the burner tip and the grate cooler walls.

Cryston® CN137 nitride bonded silicon carbide is ideal for lining the nose ring of the rotary kiln – a critical area that benefits from Cryston’s distinct combination of high temperature abrasion resistance and thermal shock resistance.
