Wear-resistant Copper Staves

Wall cooling in higher heat zones of the blast furnace

Wear-resistant Copper Staves
  • Superior thermal conductivity with increased resistance to high thermal loads
  • Abrasion-resistance achieved through patent pending stave surface design, which retains a protective layer
  • Unique surface design provides additional stiffness, minimizing stave bending
  • Standard and retro-fit solutions for new furnaces and furnace relines
  • Minimal installation and downtime requirements
  • Significant reduction in wear and unplanned maintenance 
  • Extended campaign lifetime
