    Features

    These materials, designed to withstand high temperatures and difficult conditions, have several key applications in copper industry.

    In copper production, furnaces and converters are used to smelt and refine copper ore. This equipment operates at extremely high temperatures, and refractory linings protect the structures and equipment from these temperatures, ensuring that they operate efficiently and safely. In doing so, they minimise wear and extend the life of this equipment, which is essential to the production process.

    In addition, molten copper and slag can be corrosive to many materials. Refractories protect equipment walls from corrosive attack by liquid copper and by-products generated during smelting and refining. This protection is essential to maintain the integrity of the equipment and to avoid contamination of the copper produced.

    The thermal insulation provided by refractories is another key aspect. By keeping heat inside the equipment, they reduce energy loss and increase the overall efficiency of the production process. This efficiency is vital, as any heat loss represents an additional energy expense and, therefore, an increase in production costs.
