SILICON pushes the limits of Refractory Anchoring Technology in the cement industry with our innovative design and alloy choices to overcome the most aggressive corrosion and strength conditions.
Every step within the cement production journey presents distinct challenges to the refractory lining. Your choice of raw materials, the fuel utilized, and the specific design and operational traits of your kiln all shape the refractory options you consider. At every juncture of this process, we provide customized solutions that align precisely with your requirements.
Continual demands made on the cement industry for greater productivity and lower maintenance costs have pushed the industry to the limits of the conventional technologies existing on the market today.
Most common problems are the result of poor-quality anchoring systems and include:
Detachment of anchors and/or refractory concrete
These problems can lead to urgent repairs, costing cement plants time and money.
SILICON has recognized many of these issues and offers the following services to the cement industry:
