THE M.H. DETRICK COMPANY

 
PROVEN DURABLE REFRACTORY LININGS
THAT MEET ANY FURNACE CONDITIONS
 
The M.H. Detrick Company supplies suspended refractory constructions that enhance the performance of industrial heat enclosures. Our access to worldwide refractory resources ensures that your business benefits from the best materials for your heat enclosure.
 
Detrick brick can be supplied in various grades of refractory best suited for harsh physical and chemical furnace conditions. Likewise, Detrick castings can be supplied in various heat-resistant ductile iron grades and stainless steel.
 
We can also provide a suspended refractory lining with back-up insulating materials to make your furnace more efficient by limiting BTU loss through the lining.

 
 
 

KNOWLEDGE, EXPERIENCE, RELATIONSHIPS

As the original creator of suspended refractory constructions, M.H. Detrick Company has the expertise to help improve the efficiency and dependability of your existing or future refractory application. With representation worldwide, the M.H. Detrick Company is capable of providing the appropriate enclosure for your heat-handling needs.

 
In the selection of a ferrous material for retaining refractories and transferring the load to the steel structure, both thermal and structural properties must be considered. Cast metal is preferred because it is manufactured under a controlled process for specific performance within heat conditions. In the event temperatures exceed the limits of these cast metals, we supply various chromium-nickel alloy castings.

M.H. DETRICK SUSPENDED CONSTRUCTIONS PROVIDE A LONG-LASTING AND DEPENDABLE SERVICE FOR DIVERSE APPLICATIONS:

 
• Pre-fired brick, which bonds with adjacent shapes to
   provide system strength and integrity throughout
   the lining
• Insulating materials, which enhance the unit’s overall
   thermal efficiency (e.g. lightweight castable, ceramic
   fiber-blanket and block insulation)
• Heat-resistant castings, which suspend the brick
   lining and transfer the load to the external supporting
   steel structure
• Zoned design, which provides intermittently spaced
   expansion joints throughout the construction, making
   the design easy to add to or repair while leaving
   adjacent constructions undisturbed

 

QUALITY HEAT ENCLOSURES: CONCEPT TO CONSTRUCTION
