Forehearth Refractory Shapes and Components



Expendable refractory parts must withstand high-temperature environments and thermal shock, as well as heavy wear and corrosion. Specially formulated materials help ensure durability and improve production performance of orifice rings, tubes, plungers, spouts and other parts.


Pyrotek Offerings

Pyrotek expendable refractory shapes feature high volume stability, resistance to alkali vapours, thermal shock, hot load and excellent resistance to corrosion. They are available in compositions designed for short or long run applications. In-stock moulds help ensure timely delivery. Their proven performance in molten glass contact applications show excellent corrosion resistance, resistance to alkali vapours, high-volume stability, thermal shock resistance and excellent hot-load properties.
