Kiln Car

Back to Applications

MetPump® refractories are a high performance alternative to standard tunnel kiln car shapes. With excellent hot strength, thermal shock resistance and outstanding load stability, MetPump® will keep your kiln cars in service longer with less maintenance and with fewer brick rejects.

MetPump® allows us to combine multiple shapes into single, larger precast shapes, reducing the number of joints as well as the number of parts to inventory.

Fewer joints means fewer issues that can cause car misalignment, loss of heat seal or overheating of wheels, leading to car failure, kiln damage and a potential shutdown.

Larger shapes also reduce kiln car set up time and increase worker safety by eliminating manual lifting.
