NORVIBE™ Dry Vibrated Cements (DVC)

Dry Vibrated Monolithics

Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories offers an optimized range of dry vibrated cements (DVC) designed to accommodate customer-specific equipment, metals and operating parameters. 

Neutral ramming mixes (NRM) based on alumina/magnesia spinel material exhibit increased service life and corrosion resistance, delivering operational savings. NRM’s unique 3-layer design helps prevent leakage, providing additional melting security and ensuring worker safety. The entire coreless induction furnace product range has been developed to help improve energy balance in production, reducing overall cost in line with local market requirements. For example, customers in India have seen notable improvements by employing the HeatKing™ product.

FAQ

Which products are recommended for high alloy steel melting?

NORVIBE™ dry vibrated cements on alumina magnesia spinel bases have demonstrated excellent performance in alloy steel melting. Magnesia or magnesia spinel-based products are well suited for use with aggressive compositions, helping to reduce the impact of corrosion.

Which products are recommended for melting steel scrap in coreless induction furnaces?

The NORVIBE™ range of products has been adapted to cater to a range of furnace sizes and operating conditions.

Monolithic linings such as NORVIBE™ A 1248LG or NORVIBE™ A 1173S feature an optimized 3-layer structure that helps ensure safer melting while allowing patching operations.

Use of these products can lead to CO2 emission savings of up to 5% versus traditional silica based refractory linings, making them an ideal solution for customers looking to actively reduce their carbon footprint.
