The Most Effective Method to Install Refractory Anchors

March 2014

In recent years, SILICON has made a big impact in several industries by training experts in our Rapid Arc Welding (RAW) technology to provide customers with a highly cost-effective alternative to conventional methods of installing refractory anchors. Combine this with custom-made anchoring solutions and you will see why SILICON is growing exponentially worldwide.

Petrochemical Industry

In the Petrochemical field, SILICON has proven results of reducing turnaround/shutdown times by the days and weeks. All over North-America and Europe, big oil companies such as ExxonMobil, Shell and their affiliates are widely adopting SILICON Rapid Arc Welding and anchoring solutions as the new standard for creating efficient production times and enormous cost-savings over conventional installation methods.
Our clients encountered some of the BASIC problems with the conventional stud welding machines. Follow this link and we will explain what has been done to overcome this in the SILICON Rapid Arc Welding machine.

Cement Industry

The Heidelberg group, after a year of extensive testing in the cement industry, has started adopting our patented moveable anchoring solutions in combination with RAW technology to bring the industry forward in terms of durability of their refractory linings and faster future repair potential.

This and more could never have been achieved without our multilingual team of Rapid Arc Welding Specialists. So why should you hire a RAW welder or a RAW machine?
