During July and August 2015, INSERTEC has been undertaken more than 60 pojects of maintenance Refractory linings. The local market is still predominantly but we have had an increase of projects in the rest of Europe. To carry out these projects, e have counted with the support of a team of more than 50 people displaced in customer, INSERTEC staff and business partners.newsep2015

They have been working in Automatic Pouring system,Melting towers, induction furnaces, Reverberatory furnaces, Channel furnaces, Cupola ..etc making all of these installation on date, according to the commitments entered with customers.

By sectors, Iron and Aluminium casting have been the strongest; but we have also had the opportunity to work in other sectors with new developments.

Another point to emphasize, within the development of these projects is the participation of our subsidiaries staff, Technical and Comercial in this case from Brazil (INSERTEC REFRACTARIOS DU BRASIL) and China (ZHENJIANG INSERTEC FOUNDRY) giving us the opportunity to share knowledge and experiences in various maintenance projects of refractories in the projects mentioned.

 

ALUMINIUM, young metal

Aluminium is a relatively young metal in that two hundred years ago no one knew that it existed. It was not until 1825 that Hans Christian Oersted, professer of phisics at the University of Copenhagen managed to produce the first few milligrams of pure aluminium in his laboratory.

It took a further thirty years after Oersted´s original research effors for H. Saint-Claire Deville to produce a slightly larger sample of the pure metal and this was exhibited as a small bar at the Paris Exhibition of 1855 next  to crown jewels of France.
