Rotary kilns set high demands for back-up insulation systems in steel plants. Production faces costly maintenance and decreased service hours, as a result of the extreme conditions inside the kiln. Some of the challenges include damage to the steel shell and unstable thermal conditions inside the kiln.
Skamol offers SkamoSteel M-Extra moler bricks as a back-up insulation system in rotary kilns. SkamoSteel M-Extra is designed through careful field-testing, showing the bricks excellent insulation properties combined with exceptional strength. This provide our customers with the following benefits:
SkamoSteel M-Extra’s material composition makes it resistant to alkali attacks, which shields the mechanical parts and steel shell of the kiln. The brick's structure increases in strength in temperatures up to 900°C, which gives the kiln increased resistance to the pressure of the expanding refractory lining, thereby also lowering risk of shell deformation.
