Well-known Manufacturer of Refractory Products Places Major Order with LINGL

The company LINGL/DE was awarded the contract for the construction of a high-temperature tunnel kiln for refractory products including the related kiln car circulation system by the company Gouda Refractories in the Netherlands.
Having already placed an order for a fully-automatic setting machine for refractory products Gouda Refractories once again favoured LINGL with this new order. The kiln which is to be built by LINGL will start production in late summer 2013 with a maximum temperature of 1700 °C for firing high-grade refractory products. The high-temperature tunnel kiln will be equipped with the completely new LINGL roof technology. Compared to the technologies applied today, this new technology allows for a considerably quicker change from one firing curve to another required for frequent product change. Thermal losses are reduced substantially by no longer using metal anchors or ceramic suspension systems with high thermal conductivity as used for suspended roofs. Another important fact is the reduction of investment costs as cooling air fans and piping are no longer required and the design of the roof beam system is of less weight. The innovative implementation of the high customer-specific demands on the firing and air guiding process meets the quality criteria for high-grade refractory products of Gouda Refractories. Gouda Refractories, a globally active company, is one of the leading suppliers of refractory products for the petrochemical industry, the non-ferrous metals industry (aluminium), the environmental and energy technology as well as for the cement industry. The company is a member of the Andus Group, a group of companies manufacturing products and realising projects for various industrial sectors. (10/2012)
