Full service for the copper industry

Lungmuß Feuerfest offers optimal lining solutions as well as homogeneous, complete drying of equipment used for transportation, handling, holding and casting:

  • Ladles of all types
  • Induction channel furnaces
  • Low-pressure casting furnaces
  • Storage and casting furnaces for continuous casting

The services can be tailored to the customer requests and cover:

  • Engineering: heat transfer calculation, insulation concept, the selection of suitable insulating and refractory materials
  • Breakout and disposal of worn-out refractory material
  • UVV-check
  • Installation of insulation and refractory material
  • Optimal drying: Supply of ready-for to-use vessels (no condensate escape during commissioning)

The benefits for the customer include the significant reduction of downtimes due to: reduced installation and drying times, as well as limited refractory work on site, which might disturb the production. In addition, the plant availability and productivity are increased.

Occupational safety risks, which emerge from the assignment of contractors at the customer facility, can be reduced as well as contamination resulting from refractory installation.

Particularly noteworthy are the savings regarding energy costs incurred for drying and the administration costs incurred for handling and storage.
