Trent Refractories are a supplier with a difference. We believe that a customer is a partner and that keeping you sustainable keeps us in business. This is why we love to work alongside you, view your processes and with our fluid thinking, make tailored solutions to suit your needs. We understand that a process in one plant varies massively from a process in another and generally when it comes to refractories a one shoe fits all approach is not necessarily what is best for our customers.
We see it as part of our offering to ensure we deliver competitive products that add value in use and give solid results.
We absolutely love an opportunity to help our customers and work with them to improve their processes. Invite us to your site and our experts will happily take a look at your processes and together we can formulate solutions tailored to your needs which ultimately make savings for you in resource or simply find a better way.
Working with a company in Europe we worked closely with them to redesign the configuration of their furnace so that the installation was sped up for the labourers.
We drew the furnace design for the customer and calculated the configuration of bricks to make the turn in the furnace with the most minimal of brick cuts.
We were invited to supervise a trial of a customer design and along the way noticed many ways in which we could improve the installation speed and overall ease.
Redesigned the pot to reduce the number of cuts to bricks thus making it faster to install and also increasing the size of the melt with a thinner precast base.
We have integrated the use of a new technology which offers greater slag corrosion resistance and ultimately a longer service life ladle in service. The technology creates innovative microstructures by simultaneously sintering CaO-MgO-Al2O3 , a composite hydraulic binder forms in conjunction with a micro-crystalline spinel phase. Here is a precast ladle lining project we did out of this material for a UK based customer.
Our customer approached us with a problem they were having on their furnace, which consisted of expensive water leaks. One of our engineers redesigned the roof to eliminate the use of water cooled rings in the process. Our far East customer is really pleased with the EAF Roofs.
We have worked with a number of customers to reduce the reliance on costly refractory precast products. We are the only refractory company to offer in built economisers around the ports in the delta cutting down the need to buy three separate large precast pieces every time.
