Ironmaking

Blast Furnace

MMI’s colloidal silica bonded, cement-free Metpump® refractories are ideally suited for ENDLESS LINING repair programs.  After the initial formed and pumped working lining is installed, the lining is partially repaired numerous times over. Given the beneficial properties inherent in Metpump® products, the lining wear rate will be minimized and the entire lining will not degrade as rapidly when compared to alternative low cement products. Consequently, MMI’s linings require less large-sized repairs or complete lining replacements over the long term. The longer the time frame, the larger the competitive difference in refractory consumption will be.
