DGC AFRICA has more than
30 years’ experience as a leader
in the design and manufacture of
customized precast refractory shapes.
With world-class production facilities, engineering, and design technology, the company has the capability to manufacture a wide range of precast shapes for various applications.
DGC AFRICA's Precast Division was established in 1986, specializing in the manufacture of customized precast refractory shapes. The precast refractory shapes are manufactured off-site under controlled conditions, dried out at our production facilities under stringent quality control measures, ensuring the manufacture of accurate moulds and final casting of special shapes to ensure an enhanced product service life. Precast refractory shapes offer the added benefits of ease of installation and shortened repair times.
Leaders in the development of applications for precast refractory shapes
Excellent & State-of-the-art Production Facilities
Stringent Quality Control Measures
3D Parametric Computer Modelling Software
Latest Polystyrene Cutting & Mould Design Technology
Overhead Cranage to Lift Large “Big Block” Precast Shapes
High-Intensity Paddle Mixers
Reliable & Efficient Service
Ensuring Enhanced Service Life
The company’s precast facility is adequately equipped with overhead cranes, that are highly capable of moving and hoisting big blocks from the casting area to the drying furnace or loading finished products onto trucks. The precast facility is well equipped and suitably designed with adequate space, enabling trucks to drive safely in and out of the facility for offloading and loading.

Every component is designed with the latest in 3D parametric computer modelling software and placed into mould assemblies to visually inspect the form and fit of our modules.
Once our design and engineering have been reviewed and approved the designs, customers are able to view their final product and how it will be assembled before the component is manufactured.
New mould technology has also been introduced using the latest polystyrene and mould designs that employ state-of-the-art technology to produce the highest quality products for our customers. This system is much faster compared to utilizing plywood or metal moulds.
Our cutting-edge technology, experience, innovation and design expertise furnishes our company with great manufacturing flexibility and customized solutions that suit our customers’ individual needs.
The new technology includes a range of high-intensity paddle mixers for much more consistent mixing with the capacity to mix from 50kg to 1000kg. The mixers have automatic water and mix timing functions. New adjustable high-frequency vibrating tables are able to handle big block casts, as well as a new adjustable programmable drying furnace capable of drying precast blocks from 2,5 meters to 10 meters in length.
PRECAST SHAPES OFFER THE ADDED BENEFIT OF EASE OF INSTALLATION AND SHORTENED REPAIR TIMES.
Manufactured off-site under controlled conditions and dry-out at our production facilities, and stringent quality control measures, ensuring the manufacture of accurate moulds and final casting of special shapes to ensure enhanced product service life:
Consistent and controlled manufacturing process.
Unique purpose developed materials and shapes for each application.
Work done off-site resulting in minimum interface with production.
Areas of higher wear can be engineered with optimal refractory materials.
Easier slag or dross removal due to lower porosity.
Less down time due to quicker installation and heat-up times are minimized.
Shapes from 1 kg to 9 metric tons, resulting in less joints and faster installation.
