The Waste-To-Energy Industry

Refractory Services for the Waste-To-Energy Industry

Abrasion can be a significant issue in applications that entail converting waste to energy. Refractories provide excellent protection in abrasive environments and prevent damage to large-scale incinerators and boilers when handling various forms of waste. They also offer reliable thermal shock resistance and help to ward off alkali chemical attacks.

McNeil Company can supply your waste-to-energy industry applications with a wide range of durable refractories that will allow you to overcome your most daunting challenges, whether your projects involve municipal waste-to-energy tasks or industrial incineration. We feature products from Plibrico and other leading manufacturers, and we also produce refractories ourselves. Either way, you’ll get a high-quality solution that adds value to your waste-to-energy processes.

In addition to selling refractories for waste-to-energy industry applications, we also provide comprehensive installation, repair and maintenance to maximize equipment performance and longevity.

Refractories for the Waste-To-Energy Industry

Examples of our selection of refractories for waste-to-energy applications include:

Plibrico Pligun® SiC HP8

This silicon carbide gun mix provides excellent thermal conductivity and abrasion resistance in waste interaction boiler tube sheet refractory applications. Key product benefits include superior hot and cold mechanical strength, minimal abrasion loss, good gunability, protection against acid slag corrosion and exceptional thermal conductivity.

Plibrico HyREZEST®

HyREZEST works well in ash hoppers where abrasion and thermal shock may occur at reduced temperatures. This refractory is available in gun mix and castable versions.


Also known as silicon dioxide, this fire brick refractory offers several qualities that are beneficial in high-heat environments. It provides superior strength at high temperatures, excellent thermal shock resistance and good protection against acid erosion. It also maintains its volume stability during prolonged exposure to high temperatures.
