Blast Furnace

The blast furnace has a complex lining based on many different zones each with different refractories requirements. In general, refractories are required to have resistance to CO, alkalis, abrasion, impact, thermal shock and in some cases metal and slag resistance.

Mayerton engineers select carefully the most appropriate refractories for each specific area of the lining. In general, mid alumina bricks are used in the upper zones with SiC and Carbon more appropriate for the bosh and tuyere band. Microporous carbon is used in the hearth and it can be supplemented with a ceramic cup.
