Speedy hot spot fix for Steetley Dolomite

One of the world’s leading producers of Dolomitic products for the steel industry has used Simpson Refractories for the speedy repair of a rotary kiln hot spot at its site in Worksop, Nottinghamshire.

Due to its geographical location in the centre of the UK, Simpsons was able to respond quickly and had a team onsite within 24 hours. The team ripped out 5m of brickwork and replaced with new in four working days.

This speedy turnaround lead to a significantly reduced kiln downtime for Steetley Dolomite meaning that they could re-commence commercial production as soon as possible.

Jeff Dunn from Steetley Dolomite commented: “Many thanks for a quick, efficient repair. Both shifts worked well, completing the repair quicker than anticipated in a very professional manner. The guys are a credit to your company.”
