Thermbond’s Insulating Solution Exceeds Life of Conventional Lining by 7 Times

Industry: Steel

Description of Equipment: Turret Ladle Lid

Problem: Castable lining was failing quarterly

Solution: High Wire perimeter, MAFTEC™ TM interior lining. High-wire shapes zoned to take significant impact abuse area and hold lining under compression without any cracking or movement. MAFTEC™ TM technology does not shrink when exposed to the molten steel radiant heat – no cracking or spalling as the lining resists thermal shock and thermal cycling.

Product Being Replaced: Dense Castable

Savings Using Thermbond: The new lining lasted beyond 20 months, 7 times the old lining life. Costs for materials, downtime and manpower were recovered within 6 months.

Products Applied: High wire perimeter cast shapes, MAFTEC™ TM

Equipment Used: Welder, overhead crane (High Wire)

Scope of Work: We guided the customer’s installation team during lifting and installing the high wire shapes and then installing the modules. Completed in 1 day.
