Silicon Carbide Tap blocks are the most crucial items in any aluminum furnace.  They simply cannot fail in operation.  Failure means leaking aluminum, risks to personnel, or shut down of the operation for replacement.  Christy Refractories produces many high quality silicon carbide tap blocks for multiple industries. We offer blocks out of our in-house castable but can work with many other manufacturers’ materials.  Quality tap blocks are critical in maintaining control of your molten metal.

All of our silicon carbide tap blocks go through a rigorous quality control process to ensure that each block will not prematurely fail in application.  We have an in-house quality control lab which can complete a number of ASTM physical properties tests.  The lab can provide assurances to you, or your customers, that the material meets all of your specification requirements.  Don’t take a risk on a cut rate supplier for this important application, go with a source that has decades of experience producing these shapes.

Our tap blocks are custom manufactured for each customer’s demanding applications.  Our fabrication techniques and materials are proven year after year by our customers satisfaction and repeat orders.  Contact us today to see how we can assist your tap block needs!
