Refractory Services for the Power Generation Industry

Refractory Services for the Power Generation Industry

Refractories play a crucial role in the operation of today’s power generation plants. They protect the kilns, boilers and other heating equipment by insulating them from extreme temperatures. By enabling them to operate more efficiently, refractories also contribute to increased energy savings. 

McNeil Company offers a wide selection of power generation refractories that can add value to your plant operations. We also provide a host of support services to keep your heat-treatment equipment in peak operating condition. 

High-Temperature Heating for the Power Generation Industry

McNeil can provide high-quality refractories for various types of heating equipment used in power generation applications:

  • Boilers: An industrial boiler uses a fuel source to convert water into steam piped into targeted points in the power generation system.
  • Kilns: A kiln is a high-temperature thermal processing unit used for various heat-treatment applications.
  • Incinerators: Industrial incinerators treat and eliminate the waste produced during the power generation process. 

Refractories for the Power Generation Industry

Our refractory materials for power generation applications include:

Fire Brick

This insulating material can serve as a hot face lining that’s directly exposed to heat or as backup insulation for other refractories. They’re available as soft, lightweight bricks that come in multiple shapes and sizes.

Castables

Power generation castables can help you achieve multiple objectives, such as abrasion resistance, increased thermal conductivity and high hot strengths. It’s also possible to design them for specific placement methods within your heat-treatment equipment.

Silicon Carbide

This versatile refractory base material can perform well in applications that are beyond the capabilities of other refractories. Examples of their many benefits include excellent corrosion, abrasion, thermal shock and chemical resistance.

Redi-Shapes

These precast refractory shapes from Plibrico can serve as quick lining replacements in high-wear applications. They offer excellent heat loss control and help overcome issues in highly reactive environments. Because they are precast, it’s possible to produce them in custom sizes and shapes.
