Due to corrosion, the refractory material surrounding the melted mass, will be slowly dissolved.
This problem can in no way be changed!
These erosions limit the furnace cycle and result in a shutdown of the melting plant.
For economical reasons, the critical areas are subjected to cooling aiming at an extension of the furnace cycle.
This bizarre situation of heating and cooling at the same place is no longer reasonable in this day and age
and is unnecessarily polluting our environment with emissions.
The solution: DYNAMIC FURNACE
The new patented technology of DYNAMIC FURNACE solves the most serious problems of melting plants by replacing the refractory material during the melting process.
No limitation of the melting plant’s service life (furnace cycle) caused by corrosion.
Thanks to the continuous replacement of the refractory component parts coming into contact with the melted mass, wear caused by corrosion is no longer a limiting factor.
Consequently, production downtimes for maintenance works as well as energy-intensive reheating processes are avoided.
Reduction of the energy requirement of the melting plant during operation.
As the service life of the melting plant is no longer limited by corrosion of the refractory component parts, there is no need for cooling any more.
In addition, the surfaces of the melting plant can be completely insulated.
Both factors will reduce the energy consumption of the plant clearly and sustainably.
Dynamic Furnace - basic principle
The melted mass (1) is surrounded by the wearing layer (2), which, in turn, to the outer side is enclosed by the insulation (3), additional insulation (4) and the casing (5). The casing (5) is mounted on the track rollers (6) which are attached to the steel structure (7). Thus, the complete casing (5) is movable. As required, via the feeding unit (8) a new segment (9), consisting of a casing segment (5), additional insulation (4), insulation (3) and wearing layer (2), is inserted. By the rotation of the casing (5), on the side opposite to the feeding location of the new segment (9) the worn out segment (11) is exposed. By means of the removal unit (10) the worn out segment (11) is taken out. The wearing layer (2) is worn out; the insulation (3), additional insulation (4) and the casing (5) can be used again. The melting tank is turned on a periodical or cyclical basis. For this purpose, the roof (12), covering the melted mass on the top, is lifted for a short time by using the lifting gear (13), thus allowing the turning operation.
By doing so, all refractory material getting into contact with the melted mass is continuously replaced and reconditioned.
