Aluminium

For many years, Lungmuß Feuerfest works together with companies in the Aluminium industry. The products which are developed for these specific applications meet high customer requirements for modern refractory products in terms of stability, costs and efficiency.

Lungmuß Feuerfest supplies customers with unformed refractory products (castables, ramming and gunning mixes) as well as pre-casted elements for immediate installation. The portfolio comprises:

  • Electrolytic cells
  • Melting furnaces (hearth type melting furnaces, tank melting furnaces, shaft melting furnaces)
  • Coreless induction furnaces, channel induction furnaces and inductors
  • Holding furnaces
  • Casting furnaces
  • Ladles and crucibles (also prefabricated crucibles)
  • Runners
  • Road and transport crucibles

Furthermore Lungmuß Feuerfest offer:

  • Complete lining and drying services for melting and casting furnaces and vessels on-site
  • Individual insulation and lining concepts for the optimization of the energy balance and casting quality

Full service for vessels and furnaces

The increase of plant availabilities by reducing shutdown times becomes more and more important in the aluminium industry. To this we can make a significant contribution by our full service for vessels and furnaces. Significant technical, organizational and commercial improvements can be achieved.

We offer the optimal lining and the homogeneous, complete drying of foundry aggregates, which are used for the transport, holding and casting of aluminium, such as

  • Road transport ladles
  • Ladles of every description (all kinds)
  • Low pressure die casting furnaces
  • Dosing furnaces

Our services can be adjusted individually to customer requirements and consist of

  • Engineering: insulation concept, heat transition evaluation, selection of the appropriate insulation and refractory materials
  • Removal and disposal of the worn out refractory material
  • UVV (accident prevention regulation) examination
  • Insertion of insulation and refractory material
  • Optimal drying: delivery of a ready-to-use vessels (during commissioning, significantly reduced hydrogen absorption)
  • Storage of the ready-to-use aggregate

Advantages for our customers:

  • Reduction of administration tasks due to full service from one source
  • Elimination of storage costs for lining material
  • No refractory construction area in the foundry which might affect the production
  • Prevention of job safety risks by assignment of outside companies in the foundry
  • No contamination due to lining works in the foundry
  • Abolition of lining and drying times
  • Abolition of energy costs for the drying
  • Increased durability
  • Increase of the plant availability
  • Increase of the plant efficiency
  • Reduction in time during commissioning (hydrogen absorption)

Prefabricated parts

The variety of goods comprises a wide spectrum of prefabricated parts, including:

  • Prefabricated crucibles
  • Runners
  • Runner segments
  • Spouts
  • Impact pads and ladle bottoms
  • Running and gating systems
