Extending the life of equipment and maximizing operational levels in blast furnace top components requires wear resistant materials that can withstand the harsh conditions.
With unparalleled application and engineering expertise, Saint-Gobain products offer outstanding abrasion protection, affording significantly longer lifetimes over various types of steel, hardened steels, overlays, chrome irons and other traditional wear materials. Saint-Gobain products also offer a low co-efficient of friction wear surface, allowing materials to flow easily. Saint-Gobain materials have been in use in iron making blast furnace installations since the early 1970s.
Saint-Gobain, the industry leader in wear resistant technology, designs and builds removable panels, impact panels and pre-engineered lining systems.
Saint-Gobain wear resistant materials offer excellent performance solutions, including:
Durafrax® high-grade alumina tiles
Corguard® (ZAC) alumina, zirconia and silica linings
Hammerfrax® proprietary reaction bonded SiC linings
Carbofrax® 50CK trowelable silicon carbide ram mix
Refrax® nitride bonded silicon carbide
Saint-Gobain can provide linings for the following blast furnace stock house components, including:
