By leveraging our extensive knowledge and expertise, we offer customized refractory shapes tailored to meet your exact specifications.

In like manner, our engineers specialize in crafting engineered tunnel/coffin wall designs that seamlessly align with your operational requirements.

Additionally, through the utilization of advanced 3D laser integration techniques, we guarantee precise and accurate designs, ultimately optimizing performance to meet your needs.


In order to ensure the quality and reliability of your refractory materials, we offer in-house refractory testing services.

Operating from our cutting-edge mobile laboratory, we conduct sample preparation and testing according to API 936 and ASTM standards.

Within these tests, we evaluate a variety of factors, including cold crush strength, abrasion resistance, and permanent linear change assessments.

Refractory Thickness Estimation

Utilizing advanced 3D technology, our innovative refractory thickness estimation service replaces the traditional labor-intensive approach. By employing a sophisticated 3D scanning system, we capture detailed images, thus eliminating the need for manual measurements and reducing downtime. Subsequently, the collected data undergoes processing to generate a real-time 3D model, providing precise thickness measurements. In the final analysis, this level of accuracy empowers clients to make informed maintenance decisions, thereby preventing issues such as heat loss and structural degradation in industrial processes.
