Full service for vessels and furnaces

The increase of plant availabilities by reducing shutdown times is becoming more and more important in the aluminium industry. We can make a significant contribution to this with our full service for vessels and furnaces. Significant technical, organisational and commercial improvements can be achieved.

We offer the optimal lining and the homogeneous, complete drying of foundry aggregates, which are used for the transport, holding and casting of aluminium, such as:

  • Road and transport crucibles
  • Ladles of all types
  • Low-pressure die casting furnaces
  • Dosing furnaces

Our services can be adapted individually to customer requirements and consist of:

  • Engineering: insulation concept, heat transfer evaluation, selection of the appropriate insulation and refractory materials
  • Breakout and disposal of worn-out refractory material
  • UVV check
  • Template construction in the in-house steel construction department
  • Installation of insulation and refractory material
  • Optimal drying: delivery of a ready-to-use vessels (during commissioning, significantly reduced hydrogen absorption)
  • Storage of the ready-to-use aggregate
