New Products for Extended Roof Life

Welcome Forging Industry

Forge furnaces operate under some of the most extreme high temperature conditions in the steel industry. Furnace refractories are critical to the forging process and failures cause loss of production. HTZ Ceramic Fiber Module Shrinkage is a leading cause of premature failures in furnace linings. Polycrystalline fiber is a material that shows very low shrinkage and stand up to these furnace environments. Polycrystalline exhibits excellent lining life however a fiber module composed of pure polycrystalline is about four (4) times more expensive than a traditional HTZ module.

Developments in fiber modules have recently been brought to market to exploit the benefits of polycrystalline while providing a cost-effective solution for furnace linings. Combination modules combine polycrystalline at the hot face where shrinkage occurs and incorporates HTZ fiber for the remainder of the module. The modules incorporate a precision cut locking system allowing the polycrystalline to mate with the HTZ fiber without mechanical fasteners or adhesives.
