Because of the high cost of even a partial reconstruction, ceramic welding becomes an interesting solution to extend the life of a furnace. This process consists in repairing the damage, where is difficult or impossible to reach, in any part of the structure. The mixtures are sprayed using lances designed and built ad hoc: our powders are made of refractory and metal which, solidifying, create a refractory mass identical to the original. The effectiveness of the process and the high quality of materials allows to eliminate the stress and reactions, thus ensuring a longer lasting repair.
Our technicians are specialized in the repairing of external structural damage (or readily accessible) without any performance problem related to high temperatures. Often their intervention is implemented in coordination with other teams of ceramic welders: the joint and well-organized work of our staff leads to rapid and enduring solutions, optimizing the result for the client in terms of time and costs.
No action can be performed without a detailed report on the state of the furnace. The technical observations are carried out using special endoscopes for high temperatures which allow a 360 ° monitoring during plant operation. Even the most inaccessible areas are analyzed and evaluated.
IRF EUROPA is a company that is experienced and highly qualified in furnace refractory maintenance services. Through the particular technique of ceramic welding and structural hot work, we are able to perform the repairs while the oven is in full operation, without the need to shut down and above all without any loss of production for the client.
