The quality of machinery for lining refractories is extremely important. For this reason, WEERULIN only works with renowned machinery producers. Our machinery comprises of gunning machines, high pressure vessel and rotor machines, hydraulic pressure plants and concrete pumps.
WEERULIN develops manipulator and robot concepts for steel plants in close cooperation with a leading manufacturer of robots. This is the company that developed the first large-size manipulators for the European steel industry. Today, our partner company is among the worldwide leading producers of robots for lining refractories.
WEERULIN's robot systems are also recognised for having an attractive price/performance ratio.
The INGUN® system is a patented WEERULIN technology for inside gunning of vacuum snorkels. The heart of this system is the 360° INGUN® gun nozzle with its specially designed sprayhead providing completely even coverage of the maintenance mix throughout whole snorkel deep into the lower vessel.
The advantages of the INGUN® system are:
- 20% increased lifetime
- short maintenance intervals (1-2 min)
- low rebound (max. 5%)
- small investment
For more information please read our special brochure on RH-degasser including INGUN® technology.
Many steel plants outsource the refractory department of entire aggregates to a single refractory producer.
The advantages are obvious:
- clear responsibilities
- optimized cost planning
- charged by steel tonnage, not by refractory consumption
- slim production process
WEERULIN offers 'full-line service' packages for every different kind of aggregate. In 2000, WEERULIN became the 'full-line service' contractor for a vacuum plant in Germany.
Taking care of this plant includes the production of vacuum snorkels, maintenance by means of gunning mixes, bricks economy for the whole aggregate, lining, break-out, project controlling and comprehensive project management. Let's discuss your wishes for a full-line service concept.
WEERULIN is a partner to the steel industry when it comes to engineering projects in the refractory field. This may include, for example, WEERULIN undertaking the intermediate repair of a blast furnace - as was the case, with Vallourec-Mannesmann Group in Brazil. Under the project management of WEERULIN an international team of 50 specialists reconstructed the entire blast furnace for Vallourec-Mannesmann Group in just two weeks. The life of the blast furnace was extended by years.
