Does Your Kiln Need Repair Work?
Depending on your kiln’s functions, you may need to address:
- Residual buildup: Material deposits can build up over time on the surface of your kiln, such as minerals and dust. This can disrupt the flow for rotary kilns and affect equal heating throughout the chamber.
- Rotary sagging and flexing: Plant operators with heating chambers in continuous motion will need to watch for any signs of buckling or misshaping. These problems often impact refractory.
- Refractory damage: The kiln’s insulating material slowly loses its effectiveness due to wear and tear. If these products deteriorate, your kiln lining may experience cracks and spalls. These issues can weaken the structure to the point of failure or lead to inefficient heat distribution.
If you notice deficiencies with your kiln, call the professionals at McNeil. We’re committed to helping you avoid costly breakdowns and long-term interruptions.
