Case Study on Forging Furnace Problem: Chemical Attack

A forge furnace designed to operate at a high temperature range of 2000°F to 2350°F has few options for ceramic materials that can withstand such conditions and the available ones can be quite expensive. These products also have frequent repair requirements due to the alkaline attack from the aggressive powder on the steel that is damaging to the ceramic fiber.

Problem: Rapid failure of roof refractory due to high temperature shrinkage and alkaline attack using HTZ ceramic fiber.

Solution: Installing Rath Altra/Alsitra 1400 (HP) CombiLoc. The combination modules with a T like joint allows lower temperature ceramic fiber material to be maintained on the cold face of the furnace interior wall and the high temperature fiber to be on the hot face. The module construction eliminates the use of any adhesives, clips or fasteners to hold the layers together, which are subject to failure.

Savings: This allows for an increased lining life, decreased downtime and maintenance, decreased energy consumption, improved thermal shock resistance, superior anchoring system able to withstand vibration and provides high temperature refractory at a low cost.The high temperature portion of the module is not made with zirconia, which is what causes shrinkage in competitive modules.

Why Choose Onex?

Our goal is to improve dependability and offer a lower total cost of ownership for our customers. This high temperature portion of the module is not made with zirconia, which is what causes shrinkage in competitive modules. Buy the module, have us install it for you and receive an unprecedented two (2) year warranty!
