Surface Enhancement for third parties


Parts operating under particularly severe conditions can greatly benefit from surface enhancement.

Vital components for Steel, Pulp and Chemical Industries are the ones where the benefits are more impressive.

Fan blades pushing abrasive particulates have their life cycle greatly extended.

Here are some examples of applications


Pulp Industry


Studded Panels for Recovery Boilers Other Critical Components
Bottles for Generating Bank tubes

Near Drum Corrosion limits the life cycle of the whole Generating Bank in Recovery Boilers as well in some  Power Boilers where abrasion is critical near the drum

Our parts can be treated to withstand both critical conditions

Smelt Spouts

Chromized Smelt Spouts can operate at least 100% longer cycles than regular ones.

Loops of Super Heater tubes






Chemical and Petro Chemical Industries

Pipes undergoing abrasion, cavitation, chemical attack or internal deposits, can always benefit with surface enhancements techniques that will avoid or minimize those conditions.


Surface enhancement can be done either on OD or ID Thickness is controlled to the desirable depth Modified layer does not peel off from substrate


Steel Industry

Vital components in the steel industry have traditionally operated with very short cycles.

Many of these cycles can be significantly expanded with the use of our modified materials, but because the problem has been part of the process there is a natural reluctance in taking advantage of materials specifically modified to withstand the conditions to which they are exposed.

In EAF mills the main applications are furnace hoods, 4th hole elbow, fixed holes, combustion chamber panels, furnace water cooled panels, dust tunnels among others.

In converters mills hoods, flue gases ducts, hoods of electric laddles, nozzles, flux feeders in the vast majority of the mills could have their cycles expanded.

These vital components can be supplied with performance warranty.


Thermal cracks, wear and high temperature corrosion impose short cycles to EAF hoods. Sage components are leased granting major gains. Thermal cracks, material degradation due to reducing atmosphere and/or abrasion limit the operating cycle of hood panels. Adequate surface modification prevents all these problems with major savings.
