Technology That Benefits You

The use of precast shape technology can greatly enhance the performance of refractory linings in your equipment.  Even the greatest refractory material in the world can give poor performance if adequate care is not taken to ensure proper water addition, mixing and initial bake out. Because TFL’s REDI-SHAPE™ are manufactured under exacting conditions, the physical properties of the refractory material are optimized, along with its performance.

TFL’s manufacturing facility is equipped with a fully automated mixing station which includes a digitally-controlled water meter and mix time alarm. Variable-speed vibration tables allow for proper placement of refractory materials.

After casting, the shapes are cured and then fired to specification in our digitally-controlled furnace. Adequate and controlled initial dry out plays a major role in the development of physical properties of a refractory material. This is a key item often overlooked in field-installed linings.

 

REDI-SHAPE™ also provides ease of installation and shortened repair times. Replacement parts may be kept on hand for quick replacement by your maintenance staff. Also, future repairs can be isolated; standard shapes mean replacement can be confined to the worn area, which eliminates costly, time-consuming tear-out.
