New fire-resistant interchange parts shorten relining of Westomat dosing furnaces to only five days
A new on-site relining concept for Westomat dosing furnaces: in cooperation with a leading refractory supplier, the StrikoWestofen Group (Gummersbach) has now developed refractory interchange parts. These prefabricated furnace parts are delivered completely dried and sintered. Installing them shortens the relining process to only five working days, which is about one third of the repair time usual in the market. In addition, the materials used reduce the energy consumption to a value comparable with that of the latest Westomat generation. The prefabricated parts are already available for various sizes. Furthermore, StrikoWestofen is going to successively expand the range in the course of the year.
