Hot Refractory Repair Services
Failure of refractory material can lead to energy wastage, poor performance and even complete fired heater shutdown. We offer several options in online heater refractory maintenance that can be performed while the furnace is at operating temperature. All types of hot refractory repair services offer exceptionally fast payback, compared to the costs associated with conventional repairs which require the heater be shut down.
Hot Heater Refractory Repair Making Access
Hot Refractory Repair Services may be made by making access through the heater steel shell directly behind the damaged area. Minimal openings are used to insert specially designed components to support the repair material. This technique offers a semi-permanent repair method, since we provide the high quality refractory material with full structural reinforcement.
Online Furnace Refractory Repair Using Existing Access Points
Furnace refractory repairs may also be made using existing access points and a Hot Gunning, or Hot Fiber Spray technique, in combination with Cetek’s patented lance technology. If access points are not available, our Hot Access Creation may be used as an integral part of the refractory repair process. In some applications, Cetek’s LancescopeTM system is used to see hard to reach areas of the fired heater.
