Precast Refractory Launders
Precast Refractory Launders are one of Christy Refractories primary product offerings from our fabrication department. Our high quality launders have been provided to both aluminum industry customers and the non-ferrous market. We have experience producing a large variety of different shapes for our customers in different industries. We can often provide insight into causes of premature launder failures and offer material or design change recommendations to correct the problems. Christy Refractories offers a complete line of castables to choose from our in-house castline. Christy has experience casting most major manufacturers’ castables. We have provided customers with precast refractory launder relines, as well as designed and built entirely new custom launder systems.
Precast refractory launders come in a number of shapes and sizes depending upon the industry. They can also be referred to as troughs, runners or a number of other industry names. They run the gamut from very simple drop in place relines to custom precast pieces in Y or T configurations with seats for flow control components. Particularly challenging for the refractories are surge bowls and runners. This is where the refractory sees the greatest metal velocity and abrasion loss. Christy offers a number of proven solutions to ensure the longest service life in these areas.
