The choice of the right brick quality for the lining of the blast furnace is nowadays one of the most challenging decisions of the responsible engineers in an integrated steel plant. In particular the requirement in the lifetime of the BF of more than 20 years and the reliability in capacity are crucial factors for the planning within the steel plant.
Since more than 30 years TYK meets this challenge. In our plant in Akechi we developed several qualities which are absolutely reliable and fulfill the thermal pre requirements from our customers. Our Carbon-SiC lining blocks have a very fine porosity (micropore), high thermal conductivity and excellent alkaline and molten iron penetration resistance – crucial criteria’s for a high lifetime of the Blast Furnace.
