Cement production
Traditionally, cement industry uses aluminosilicate chamotte and high aluminous refractories.
GIR group plants use at their production unique moldable clays and kaolins that gives the possibility to produce refractories with increased content of aluminum oxide (32 to 72%), with high mechanical strength and fusion temperature, which in combination with the high quality refractories in other elements of laying will promote increase of revolving furnaces service life.
Glass, enamels production
The main technological aggregate in glass production is furnaces of various construction with gas or electric heating.
The range of the produced and supplied by GIR products allow to ensure the campaign duration 7-10 years, to maintain the temperature within the operating range 1550-1600°С, to minimize heat loss into environment.
Porcelain, faience, sanitary ceramics production
At porcelain, faience, sanitary ceramics production there are used bisque, glaze and decorating firing.
For certain types of firing or baking, there are used tunnel and chamber gas and electrical furnaces. Essential factor, influencing on operating capability of furnace and its service life is the correct choice of the furnace materials.
Application of refractories and refractory lightweight brick, produced by the enterprises of the group of companies GIR, for production of multilayer lining, able to accumulate heat and, as a result, allowing consumption of the reduced quantity of total heat for quick furnace heating, makes the furnaces more efficient.
Refractories production
At high-volume output of refractory materials, there are used high-performance tunnel furnaces and drying stoves. GIR Group industrial enterprises are ready to produce almost entire range of refractory and heat-insulating products, required for construction and lining of these heat aggregates.
At not high-volume output, there are used electrical and gas chamber furnaces, bell-type high-temperature furnaces. For such furnaces lining, the GIR Group enterprises may offer refractory brick that forms in combination with fibrous material insulation the multilayer highly effective lining, ensuring reduction of time and heat expenditures fir furnace heating.
Fine ceramics production (tableware)
Small thickness of items made of fine ceramics gives the possibility to apply items drying in roll-type drying stoves. Upon drying, the items are delivered to the slot roller-hearth furnace with less than in tunnel furnace consumption of refractories (channel height is just 2-3 heights of the fired item). Due to wide choice of the refractory products, produced by the GIR Group industrial, enterprises there is the possibility to select the refractory materials, allowing reduction of fuel consumption and increase of the products quality.
Construction materials production
For construction and lining of tunnel drying stoves and furnaces, lining of bottom of tunnel cars, used for drying and firing of construction materials, the GIR Group enterprises may offer refractory and lightweight brick, heat-insulating fillings.
Application of multilayer insulation in gas tunnel furnaces with usage of refractory lightweight brick gives the possibility to increase efficiency of the furnace along with reduction of gas consumption for furnace heating.
Construction ceramics production
Construction ceramics include brick and hollow block, clay-based solid block, drying of which is performed in tunnel drying stoves with further firing in tunnel furnaces. In these heat aggregates, there are used the refractory products, produced by the GIR Group enterprises, that give the possibility to obtain multilayer insulation with application of refractory lightweight brick resistant to reduction.
