Flash Furnace for Primary Copper Production
The flash furnace relies on specialized refractories to deliver cost-effective performance, regardless of whether it is smelting copper, nickel or lead.
Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories’ C104 material enhances the furnace's resistance to aggressive slag formed by the smelting process. C104 fused cast refractories are ideal for use in critical, high wear areas of the flash furnace. Its remarkable stability in the harshest chemical environments allows furnace linings to last longer, ensuring greater total refractory utilization.
