Suspended Construction has unrivalled long term integrity in the toughest heat containment
applications. The unique Detrick design allows the use of structural materials for
structural strength and refractory materials for refractory endurance. Designs are
available in a wide range of refractory and casting qualities and shapes to give
total engineering flexibility.
Detrick Suspended Constructions are built up of prefired brick shapes which have
better resistance to chemical and mechanical attack than unfired materials. All materials
are manufactured under controlled factory conditions and are subject to stringent
quality assurance procedures. The quality of refractory installed is not dependent
on site mixing. Expansion and movement in service are absorbed within the construction.
The resulting constructions are extremely strong and stable and outlast other designs.
Detrick Suspended Construction is more economical to install than other heavy refractory
systems and installation problems are solved in our engineering office rather than
on site. There is no risk of site practice affecting final quality of the refractory
and no expensive shuttering is required during installation. No curing is required
and units can be heated up immediately. Repairs can be built back up to the same
high quality as original, from spares which do not decay or lose their properties
over long periods of storage.
