Over four billion tonnes of cement are produced each year, and cement kilns are the heart of the production process. Throughout the cement plant, many components that are compromised due to heat and erosion must be replaced. Plants have a short seasonal downtime for refurbishments, and this maintenance can cost millions of dollars in lost time and revenue.
From the raw mill to the kiln to finish the mill, Pyrotek offers a variety of solutions for the cement plant.
- Save energy
- Reduce downtime
- Lower replacement costs
- Consolidate supplier base
Refractory Parts and Materials
Pyrotek offers many refractory options, including Ceramite®, including tertiary air duct (TAD) dampers, air blaster nozzles and more. Ceramite products are special ceramic materials formulated for extreme wear resistance, high mechanical strength and withstand high temperature and thermal shock.
At operating temperatures, Pyrotek’s ISOMAG® structural insulation board offers an optimum balance between excellent insulating properties and strength. Due to its dimensional stability and excellent mechanical strength up to 1000°C (1830°F), ISOMAG board provides lining tightness and enhances the thermomechanical stability of refractory systems in mineral treatment applications. The forsteritic board reduces thermal shock of the lining and protects the shell from excessive temperature, increasing productivity and operating efficiency.
Ideal for cement and lime kilns, ISOMAG insulation board provides cost and energy savings, more uniform processing temperatures, better lining stability and more process control.

Other offerings include gaskets and seals, acoustic enclosures, flex/expansion joints, thermocouples and more.
