Industrial stripping consists in renovating and maintaining the means of production without damaging them. Indeed, stripping allows the maintenance of refractory linings of industrial ovens and kilns, converters and ladles in foundries, ducts and chimneys in factories as well as all elements that are subject to fouling. Many industrial fields are also concerned: Refinery, Petrochemical, Chemical, Waste Incineration, Energy, Cement …
What is heating engineering?
The associated industrial activity is heating engineering, which consists of preventive or curative maintenance, repair and renovation as well as new works regarding heating needs.
The work performed by heating engineers includes the construction of boiler bases, the installation of thermal insulation and refractory linings on the walls of furnaces and ladles in foundries. Through regular maintenance, this work can be limited to the replacement of refractory linings without demolishing the masonry elements. In some cases, it is necessary to carry out a complete refurbishment with demolition work and then brickwork and tamping.
These works present particular risks and are carried out by the internal maintenance services of the manufacturers or by external companies specialised in thermal engineering which are committed to strict quality and safety policies.
Maintenance of industrial ovens
Why maintain industrial ovens?
In general, the maintenance of heating elements is essential to ensure their proper operation and to prevent them from catching fire. Regular maintenance ensures that industrial ovens remain in good condition and that the quality of production is maintained by limiting the risks of pollution of the materials produced in the ladles and furnaces in the iron and steel industry, the cement industry or the glass industry.
