Precast, Prefired Shapes

Did you know that Virginia Carolina Refractory can 100% fabricate your precast shapes, including rotary kiln nose rings? Rotary kiln nose rings are the protective wear ring in the kiln, which makes it a high-wear area around the burner. These areas have been a problem for our customers over the years and we have engineered, fabricated, and have the end-product to install at a 75% cost reduction compared to our competitors. The substantial amount of anchoring ensures longevity of the ring, once in place. Our shapes are pre-fired to remove the excess water and ready to install when delivered. This is our second successful execution of re-engineering these type of systems for specific kilns ranging from 5′ to 15′ in diameter with the proper material selected for the operational and process conditions.
