Vanocur Refractories® understands the importance of staying competitive in a global market. Our patented product provides immediate and future cost savings.
A typical throughwall rebuild with traditional silica brick would require 60 skilled bricklayers. Vanocur® module rebuilds average between 10 and 12 laborers/riggers.
Riggers vs Bricklayers
Unlike traditional repairs, Vanocur Refractories® repairs do not require skilled bricklayers. Our big BLOCK™ modules replace approximately 30 brick, and are installed with rigging equipment. In a time where skilled bricklayers are at a premium, the installation cost can be greatly reduced by using either in-house personnel or contracted laborers/riggers.
Total average completion for a double throughwall replacement from push-out to charge-in is 30 days. This can be accomplished through a combination of mechanical demolition and installation of modules that are displacing approximately 30 traditional silica bricks at one time.
Minimal Loss of Coke Production
Reduced Post Maintenance Costs
With the use of VANOCAST™, spalling and cracking due to thermal shock are greatly reduced. This translates into reduced need for spraying and patching.
