A Wahl SIFCA® (Slurry Infiltrated Fiber Castable) Tertiary Air Damper exhibits minimal wear – an impressive outcome considering the butterfly damper has been in service for over nine years. The kiln has a capacity of 3000 tpd and burns waste fuels.
SIFCA® Dampers have been installed in cement plants in more than a dozen countries, and Wahl’s engineers have perfected their designs to outperform other dampers in the harshest of kiln conditions. Wahl Refractory Solutions patented its SIFCA® line of highly reinforced composite refractory precast shapes in the 1980’s. Over the past 3 decades, Wahl has continually improved the performance of its SIFCA® line of products and perfected the engineering and application of this technology to solve refractory problems in the cement industry. SIFCA® has been successfully used in cement plants around the world in nose rings, cooler roof blocks, blaster nozzles, thermocouple protection tubes, as well as tertiary air dampers.
Wahl Refractory Solutions offers a wide variety of materials made to withstand the demands of the cement industry. Wahl is an industry leader with world-class research and development capabilities and custom-engineered products.
