17 Dez: Maintenance shutdowns in Votorantim cements plants (Cordoba and Niebla)

Since 2007, Refractarios Alfran has been the main player in both the refractory materials supply and installation at Votorantim Cimentos plants, in southern Spain.

Alfran has been the company chosen thanks to its knowledge of the facilities, the quality of its materials and our qualified personnel, mastering all installation methods and knowing perfectly the material requirements in each area, in the different maintenance shutdowns carried out at its plants in Cordoba and Niebla (Huelva).

We must highlight that castables such as ALFRAN CLEAN 85 G, ALFRAN ABR CLEAN, or DRYTECH 70 are commonly used in these cement plants, with exceptional performances.

02 Nov: First Alfranjet project in United Arab Emirates

In 2020, we have incorporated ALFRAN-HTR from the UAE as a Grupo Aldomer subsidiary. We have been collaborating with the company HTR for some time now and as a result, in April 2019 the first Alfranjet materials installation was carried out in the United Arab Emirates. In particular, 200 tons were projected at Arkan Cement Plant in Al Ain.

The work involved demolition, welding anchors, insulation gunning (Lite 10/14), and Alfranjet 45 SiC projection in the tertiary air duct, and Alfranjet 70 SiC on walls and the sidewall of the cooler. The installation was performed by qualified staff from Spain, in close collaboration with the HTR local workers.

The customer’s impression, as well as the rest of the companies present at the shutdown, was excellent, praising not only the speed of the installation but also the quality of the work executed and the degree of compliance with safety standards
