Bend-resistant Copper Staves

Blast furnace cooling in high heat and liquid zones

Bend-resistant Copper Staves
  • Superior thermal conductivity with increased resistance to high thermal loads
  • Prevents bending of the stave corners and eliminates premature failure of cooling pipe connections due to proven anti-bending technology
  • Stave thermal expansion without bending thanks to unique guide pin with optimum positioning 
  • Standard and retro-fit solutions for new furnaces and furnace relines
  • Minimal installation and downtime requirements
  • Significant reduction in unplanned maintenance 
  • Extended campaign lifetime
