ABOUT REFRACTORY ANCHOR MANUFACTURING
This Division designs, manufactures and supplies an extensive range of high-quality custom-made refractory anchors. The anchors are suitable for most refractory linings including bricks, castable, mouldable, spray on, or ceramic fibre withstanding temperatures of up to 1600°C. The various material grades of refractory anchors are manufactured in the company’s state-of-the-art facilities using wire coil. The wire coil adheres to strict internal material specifications, and undergoes the required annealing process. Material grades are carefully selected, depending on temperature and furnace atmospheric conditions to provide the most suitable attachment points for refractory material. Dickinson Industries (Pty) Ltd.’s full in-house design and manufacturing capabilities result in rapid turnaround times on custom anchor designs, as well as a unique range of high-quality anchor systems. This facilitates an increase in speed and accuracy of installation, ultimately allowing clients to save on costs. The Refractory Anchor Division offers flexible services, ranging from simple refractory anchor supplies to complete turnkey solutions; involving the design and planning of anchoring systems, as well as installation.
