Refractory Linings for Iron and Steel Foundries

Foseco will highlight the latest developments in foundry lining technology including the launch of the TRIAD Z no cement castable range for iron and steel foundry applications.

No cement castable have been available for many years and are attractive for minimising the furnace downtime during the relining process. The recent development of the TRIAD Z range bring added advantages in terms of superior slag resistance and enhanced hot properties of the castable system.

TRIAD Z can be cast, pumped and shotcreted is now available for most of iron and steel foundry applications such as long campaign cupola melting, channel holding and pouring furnaces as well as iron and steel ladle applications.

On the stand Foseco will present a complete package of lining and purging refractories designed for long life and improved metal cleanliness in coreless induction furnaces melting steel grades. The portfolio consists of high quality KELLUNDITE lining systems suitable for melting a wide range of steel alloys and purge plugs utilising integral earth protection and precise gas flow control systems to ensure safe and optimal operation.

Finally, Foseco will also show a complete package of long-life linings for long campaign cupolas melting iron grades. The cupola portfolio consists of high quality RAMWELL ramming mixes and HYDRA-MAX low cement castable lining systems enriched with silicon carbide and graphite aggregates to improve slag resistance.
