Prolonging Asset Life-Cycles for Reduced Operational Cost
Refractory lining is applied to the internal surface of process equipment. It protects the steel work structure of furnaces, boilers, vessels, ducting, and other equipment from extreme conditions, acting as a protective layer of insulation on the internal surface. Refractory protects equipment from extreme temperatures, abrasion, corrosion and chemical erosion.
Powertherm is at the forefront of refractory lining projects, completing numerous projects of all scales. Whether it’s a predetermined specification or a bespoke installation requiring design work, we have the experience and expertise to provide an all-inclusive service, on new installations and for maintenance requirements.
Powertherm offers Refractory Lining Services on a full range of small to large industrial assets including:
- Heat exchangers
- Petrochemical equipment: Crackers
- Piping and ducting: Exhausts, diffusers, flues, process assets

Our in-house teams understand the considerations required when creating the right solution to a client’s lining requirements: thermal movement and expansion, chemical erosion, corrosion and abrasion resistance. Our dedicated refractory division has vast experience working with all types of refractory materials and methods of application. They understand that quality control and assurance, and health and safety, are fundamental to the success of a project.
Our experts have the skills to carryout specialist installation techniques, including ramming, packing, gunning, casting, bricking, pumping, applying ceramic fibrous products and executing and safely managing full dry outs. They work with all types of materials such as phosphate products, ceramic fibre, firebrick, calcium silicate and microporous panels in veneer, slab, modular and blanket forms, and all types of anchorage methods.
In support of our Refractory Lining Services, we have the technical expertise to carry out inspections of linings and provide design drawings and thermal calculations for projects. We offer a turnkey end-to-end service covering the full life-cycle of assets, from design and engineering to installation and ongoing maintenance.
