Such an increase in temperature indicates the presence of several zones of liquid metal flowing into the furnace lining and its degradation in the future.
The furnace lining is monitored visually and copper leaks through lining are inaccessible for inspection and it is made by measuring the temperature of the furnace body.
In particular, the improvement of the systems for diagnosing the state of furnace lining is an important scientific problem, since it allows to more accurately predict the residual life of the equipment, adjust its operating modes to extend the service life and prepare in advance for the necessary replacement of the lining, as it is related with complete stoppage of the furnace and draining the metal melt.
The input parameters for 2D simulations were set as follows: ingot temperature: 600[degrees]C, furnace lining temperature: 1,150[degrees]C, the distance between the ingot and the furnace wall: 1 m, as in Fig 1.
Along with overall demand, data has also been provided for the above regions for key applications such as furnace linings, construction, and ceramics and so on.
exhibited its line of products for various furnace applications that allow plants to reduce refractory installation times while increasing the life of furnace linings. For cupolas, new technology with plastics and ramming mixes lengthens shelf life and improves working conditions during installation.
* Repairing and replacing refractory brick furnace linings,
Popular in the 18th century, the material was used to produce industrial-strength brickwork that was turned into furnace linings for the copper, iron and steel industries.
Clinotherm, which was assisted in 2003 by grants from Derwentside District Council and Durham County Council, has previously won a pounds 412,000 contract for the supply of linings to a hot dip galvanising line in Shanghai, China, and has also won contracts in the USA and South Africa for forging furnace linings.
The business, which is also based in Cologne and Cleveland, specialises in the ceramic welding of furnace linings in the coke and glass making industries.
Although furnace linings are mostly made from oxides of aluminum and silicon, which are fairly inert, they can be chemically attacked by some materials.
