Tips for the maintenance of Reverberatory furnace.

The main advice is periodic maintenance. They are the best prevention.

With this in mind, there are three main points that will help us.

Design of the furnace.


It has direct consequences in the simplicity of maintenance, so we have to take into account:

  • Improvements based on the optimization and efficiency of the operation of the furnace.
  • Easy/comfortable access to all cleaning areas.

Temperature control:

  • Controlling the excess of temperature has a direct influence on the increase of the useful life and the performance of the installation, as well as on the quality of the metal.
  • Do not prolong the stay of the liquid metal in the furnace once it is ready to pour or transfer.

Refractory selection.

The main objective is to keep the lining stable for as long as possible, protecting the metal structure of the furnace and ensuring the quality of the metal in contact with it.e following factors must be taken into account:

  • Dimensional and capacity requirements of the furnace.
  • Requirements of energy consumption and temperature limitations in boilermaking.
  • Operational parameters (working temperatures, alloy types...)

Well-designed and selected refractory linings help improve furnace productivity and profitability.
