HTT – Episode 5 – MINI-Pump

Oct 09, 2020 / Podcast

Dean Cinquemani from HPC Manufacturing and Stephen Karns from HWI’s application technology group join in for this episode of High Temperature Times™ to discuss the MINI-Pump. This versatile and highly modular shotcrete rig enables installers to use the more modern and advanced shotcrete technology in place of the more antiquated gunning method when installing monolithic refractory. Dean Cinquemani outlines the development process with their HPC – HWI collaborative efforts, while Karns outlines the benefits of the shotcrete technology and how the MINI-Pump enables even shotcrete users the possibility of more control and mobility, especially in the hydrocarbon processing industry.
