Replacing shell sections is a routine task for NAK employees. Experienced field personnel are the key to the correct installation of a new kiln shell section and to maintaining the repair schedule. All NAK personnel are equipped and trained, in both, safety and kiln service work. All crew leaders have many years of kiln experience and are backed up by expert project managers.
Shell section replacements:
- Riding ring pads section replacement
- Nose section replacements
- Shell pie cuts
- Chain replacements
- Nose casting replacements
- Complete shell installations
The proper removal of the existing section is critical to allow the new section to be correctly installed. Continuing to operate a kiln with a damaged shell generally results in excessive unscheduled downtime, increased refractory costs and could lead to a catastrophic failure of the shell causing collateral damage to surrounding equipment.
