Low Fume Products

Mayerton has innovated to enhance the safety and quality of our magnesia carbon bricks. Our traditional hardening process post-pressing has evolved to minimize volatile emissions during heating at the customer’s site. Our low fume products use improved binders, enabling higher curing temperatures and significantly reduced emissions. Alternatively, our no fume products transform binders into pure carbon during manufacturing, with fumes neutralized through thermal afterburning. Mayerton remains committed to safety, performance, and environmental responsibility, setting a new industry benchmark.

Vertical Cracking

Mayerton has transformed ladle design by innovating against vertical cracking in refractory linings. Our groundbreaking solution counters chemical, mechanical, and thermal stresses, addressing the longstanding issue of cracks around the slag zone and transition area, and avoiding premature brick wear. Using the reversed pressing process, Mayerton’s method ensures robust brick compaction, eliminating vulnerabilities and preventing vertical cracking. This approach was proven effective in real-world conditions and customer trials, showcased at UNITECR22 in March 2022, establishing Mayerton as an industry front-runner.

Prefabricated Slagdoor Solution

Mayerton is at the forefront of continuous improvement and innovation. Solving a common Challenge and Obstacle with the aim to Increase EAF Performance: Mayerton unveiled its solution in a presentation at UNITECR23 in Frankfurt.  We designed, developed and launched customized, pre-assembled Slagdoors.

During the process, we looked at how to improve on slag management, operational efficiency and environmental considerations:

The results have been overwhelmingly successful:

  • Precisely fitting brick assembly (ensuring no gaps) – removing installation issues.
  • Faster installation and operational efficiency.
  • Safe operation, improving on health and safety.
