Lime Industry

Mayerton designs linings for use in lime manufacturing. Materials are chosen for rotary pebble kilns, vertical shaft kilns and rotary hearth/recovery kilns. Dependent on kiln, the areas divide into zones: charging, pre-heating, calcining, burning and discharge, cooling, safety and insulation.


Mostly, bricks demonstrating refractoriness, resistance to thermal shock and volume stability line severe furnace operation areas. Bricks include: magnesia-spinel; magnesia-chrome (silicate bonded, direct bonded and rebonded); mid and high alumina (alumina content 50, 60, 70, and 80%); fireclay bricks (super, high, medium and low duties plus semi silica).

Castables coat areas exposed to less arduous service conditions, areas hard to reach and areas requiring repair. Chemically bonded refractory castables exhibit strength and density combined with volume stability from ambient to elevated temperatures. Associated features include abrasion resistance. Monolithics include: fireclay; mid alumina (50 & 60%); high alumina (70 & 80%); and phosphate.


Design Solutions

At Mayerton, we constantly strive to technically advance our refractory lining designs, in conjunction with new material developments. Applications such as ladles, converters, electric arc furnaces, blast furnaces, torpedos, degassers and tundish, all benefit from our lining concepts. Such innovations play a critical role in optimising lining life expectancy, availability, and specific costs. This in turn helps our customers to be more competitive in the production of iron, steel and non-ferrous metals.  For more information contact:
