How many rows of impact bricks should a furnace have?
The optimum height of the impact section depends on several factors, particularly the charging frequency used at the facility. Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories’ extensive expertise with copper shaft furnaces enables the provision of optimal designs for any refractory system, including appropriate sizing of the impact zone.
Which product is recommended as a backing material behind the impact zone?
The choice of castable backing material for the impact zone of a furnace will vary depending on the specification of the furnace and application. Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories’ experienced engineering teams are on hand to provide customer-focused advice and support around this.
