Tailored Solutions Just for You
Looking for a one-stop shop for your refractory anchor project for your next winter repair?
We can tailor the perfect solution for you from engineering to production and the final installation with a crew on site. SILICON plans and executes numerous winter repair projects with various degrees of complexity. These projects require an attention-to-detail to planning and coordination in order to achieve optimal refractory anchor installation.
Our team also works closely with your team, providing valuable advice to ensure that every factor is taken into account.
Q: I have a problem or process that require a totally new anchor solution. Can SILICON help?
A: No problem! Our engineers are champions at finding the ideal solution for your application. We can also re-engineer self-designed anchoring systems according to your own drawings, samples or sketches, transforming hand-welding specifications to Rapid Arc Weldable ones.
Q: I need advice on which alloy to choose for my specific application.
A: Our metallurgical consultancy service is highly recommended. When choosing the right alloy, we look at a variety of elements, not just temperature. We look at the environment, cyclic conditions, strength, ductility, and melting point. Furthermore, with over four decades of working in the industry, we have tested various alloys in actual service conditions and have determined each alloy's suitability for a particular application.
Q: I am not sure how alternative fuels affect refractory materials. How does SILICON take this under consideration?
A: In the push for sustainability in the cement industry, many plants have turned to alternative fuels emitting less CO2 when burnt. However, it is important to note that alternative fuels can come with a higher percentage of volatile matter which can lead to increased corrosion of both the refractory lining and anchors. At SILICON, we consider the uncertainty of alternative fuels when advising you on the choice of the proper alloy for your application.
