Anderman Ceramics Zircoat refractory coating – results show over 30% fuel savings
Anderman Ceramics is proud to have been chosen by the most prestigious Ceramic Industry magazine to publish an article about the benefits of their refractory coating ZIRCOAT.
After Anderman Ceramics and partner Jyoti identified the need for a suitable refractory coating compound that can withstand extraordinary temperatures and control the erosion and corrosion of refractories, they have initiated a project to develop a suitable refractory compound with the required features.
This zirconia-rich compound specially formulated to withstand high temperatures (up to 1,800°C) and control erosion and corrosion of refractory linings was originally developed to improve the performance of in-house kilns increasing their life and efficiency. Zircoat has since been used in applications for many high temperature environments, helping to reduce operating costs and increase refractory life.
The success the coating offers in increasing refractory lifetime and efficiency, is now being shared with other industries where high temperature resistance is essential as well as wear corrosion and erosion is a severe problem.
The compound is also ideal for sealing cracks and performing emergency repairs. The results prove that using Zircoat shows a substantial reduction in thermal energy loss and a subsequent saving in fuel costs in the region of 30%.
Zircoat is also very easy to apply and for the range of industries and applications where this product can be used, constitutes a strong advantage, especially if you are looking for a non-expensive application method.
Helped by their customers, Anderman Ceramics and Jyoti, developed Zircoat to a high standard of quality and it is now considered as being one of the most effective refractory coatings.
