Blast furnaces

One of the main activities of Pirson Refractories is the installation of Blast Furnace Linings.

Pirson Refractories has ample experience in supervising and performing tap hole repairs under hot condition thereby minimizing furnace down time. With an assessment of the condition of the refractories in the tap hole area, preventive repairs can be made avoiding a possible break out.

Tap Hole Repairs

Often repair of the tap hole and the area directly around the tap hole, being one of the most vulnerable areas of the furnace, is required well before the projected end of the furnace campaign.

Campaign Extension Repairs

Often a certain area of the furnace has deteriorated so much that repair is required already before the scheduled reline date. Or in other circumstances a reline needs to be postponed due to market conditions or for cash flow reasons, not being able to do a complete reline.

In such circumstances Pirson Refractories will assist you in preparing and executing a repair scenario for the most critical areas of the furnace which will allow you to continue the operation with minimum down time and investment.

Gunning of the Stack

In cooperation with our associated company Pirson Refractory Guniting we can gunite your blast furnace stack using manual or remote controlled equipment.
