Shaft furnaces operate at temperatures around 1,200°C and may be even hotter around the burners and at the tap hole.

The feed material of a shaft furnace and operation of the burners determines which type of refractories should be incorporated into the lining system.

Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories delivers custom engineered solutions for copper furnace applications, ensuring the most reliable furnace performance and the longest service life.
