Throughout Europe Lungmuß taphole clays stand for high quality and the latest technology. After the start with basic tar-bonded clays in the beginning of the 70s Lungmuß Feuerfest produces since 1982 exclusively resin-bonded taphole clays. All taphole clays are low in PAH content. Since 2015 the company is also offering a superior binding system almost free of PAH. In the field of taphole clays, Lungmuß Feuerfest is truly the European market leader.
Lungmuß taphole clays can be used for soaking bar and for drilling technique. The development using different resin qualities leads to variable setting times of the clay. Thus Lungmuß taphole clays can also be used with uncooled mud guns. Currently these clays are used for blast furnaces with a hearth diameter between 6.0 m to 15.1 m. At a single taphole operation with tap-to-tap time between 20 and 60 minutes, the daily production per taphole is between 2,000 to 13,500 t HM. For maintenance purposes the company offers different types of repair material for the taphole area.
Lungmuß Feuerfest offers the complete service for casting and holding furnaces. In addition, complete furnace vessels, in particular casting furnaces and forehearths as changeable replacement aggregates can be installed quickly. This leads to an increase of the plant availability and to a reduction of shutdown times.
Lungmuß Feuerfest was founded in 1958 by Hans Lungmuß. It is still a family-run company, now in the third generation. As the owners are closely involved in managing the business, quick decision making and high flexibility are guaranteed.
