26 Mar Full Reline with 7200 Series
Description of Equipment: Cyclone, Bullnose and Nose Ring
Problem: End user had regularly scheduled reline maintenance and wanted to reduce the length of the shutdown.
Solution: Thermbond 7229 & 7206 were chosen for the reline because of their speed of installation and quick dry-out properties. Additionally, Thermbond 7229 & 7206 offered the end user great abrasion resistance, which is perfect for these applications.
Product Being Replaced: Conventional Refractory
Savings Using Thermbond: End user saved upwards of three days of shutdown time thanks to the quick install and fast dry-out properties. The customer anticipates the abrasion resistance properties will allow the unit to operate longer between shutdowns.
Products Applied: Thermbond 7229 & 7206
Method of Installation: Shotcrete & Gunning
Equipment Used: Shotcrete machine, Standard gunning rig
Scope of Work: Existing conventional refractory lining was torn out and new anchors were installed.

The material was either gunned or shotcreted using the same bagged material for both installation methods.
