Wire Formed Anchors
Configured to suit all light, medium and dense refractories in
providing maximum support during refractory application and maximum retention of
refractories during plant service. Consideration is given to expansion, heat transfer,
method of application, environmental conditions and design of host unit for individual
applications, standard designs are defined in our data sheet catalogue. Anchors are
designed for Manual and Semi-Automatic Welding.
The range of applications is limited only by the structural
strength of the anchor section. The maximum section size of CAUSEWAY wire formed anchors
is 9.5mm. Typical applications include furnaces, ductwork, heaters, reactors; in fact,
most process plant.
Plate Formed Anchors
CAUSEWAY PLATE ANCHORS are divided into Metallic Anchors and
Ceramic Supports. The Metallic Anchors are designed typically for ceramic
fibre and for light and medium weight refractories, again configured to provide maximum
retention during plant service. The Ceramic Anchor Supports C Clips
are designed to retain most standard pattern ceramic anchors (Scissor Clip types are
available as wire formed).
Mainly for light and medium weight duties, their typically
small cross sectional area provides low heat transfer with section size providing ease of
both manual and semi-automatic welding.
C Clips retain ceramic anchors used for anchoring mouldable refractories.
Rod Formed Anchors / Studs
CAUSEWAY FORMED ANCHORS above 9.5mm section are termed
ROD formed. Heavy weight anchors are used only in the most arduous conditions.
They are designed to provide support and attachment of refractory pre-cast sections to
plant steelwork, and provide an effective anchoring system in high stress situations.
Their design shape minimises and controls heat transfer and thus provides maximum strength
and elevated temperatures.
Refractory lining situations that have attendant high live
loads such as Rotary Kilns; deep roof and side wall lining of dense refractories requiring
maximum support during operating conditions; heavy weight pre-cast blocks retained by bolt
through, weld on and slip on systems.
