Anchors in Refractory Linings

May 28, 2021 / Podcast

Advanced Engineering Manager Ray Miksic joins this episode of High Temperature Times to talk about the use of anchors in refractory linings. Proper anchor selection and placement is as important as refractory selection itself, as it supports the refractory lining and ensures optimized lining lifetimes. This episode also features some tips and tricks from VAS Application Specialist Scott Salzman on installing monolithic refractory products around anchors.
