Skids & Posts

Precast Solutions

 

With increasing international competition within the steel industry, the demands of reheat furnaces call for reliable equipment with consistent availability. The reheat furnace industry needs skid and post systems that can demonstrate excellent insulation and mechanical resistance, but also allow for a rapid installation and easy repairs without compromising the stock quality.

CALDE™ BLOCK POST concept:

Calderys developed a system consisting of an assemblage of precast pieces that is quick and easy to install. The self-applied rings are held in position by a specially designed upper-ending ring that doesn’t need any additional welded anchors. This solution allows for 10+ years of maintaining the posts at a replacing rate of only 5% per year.

CALDE™ BLOCK SKID concept:

Calderys proposes two concepts for this application. Our standard solution, the CALDE™ BLOCK SKID, has over 20 years of success along with plenty of references. We have updated this product line with a innovation aimed at minimizing energy loss and avoiding defects on stocks due to black spots. Our CALDE™ BLOCK SKID QUICK (Quick Installation) solution is a new concept that contains only 4 bridges per piece, versus many more in cast in situ solution, which improves insulation. The main advantages of our CALDE™ BLOCK SKID QUICK solution are:

  • Quick installation time: 20% and over savings in installation time vs. other precast systems, 40% and over versus cast in situ solutions.
  • Full adaptation of the pipe deformation, compensated by the filling of CALDE™ MIX BF 35
  • Simplified welding separated from the installation of the precast blocks
  • Improvement in the insulation
