Iron & Steel Coating Technology

Emisshield’s solution-based, energy enhancing coatings are being put to the test every day, all around the world. Through the experience of our Emisshield Installers, Emisshield Products are able to be used in many different applications to help increase production, the life of the unit and the overall efficiency of processes throughout the Iron & Steel Industry. Furnaces can be retrofitted in the field by applying the Emisshield coating to existing refractories and metals.

Coating Applications:

  1. Reheat Furnaces
  2. Electric Arc Furnaces (EAF)
  3. Annealing Furnaces – Continuous/Batch/Bell/Top Hat
  4. Crucible Furnaces
  5. Ladle Preheaters
  6. DRI Plants
  7. Radiant Tubes
  8. Roller Bars
  9. And More…

The high temperature environments found in the Iron & Steel Industry provide numerous applications for Emisshield. Emisshield Coating Systems allow these industrial processes to maximize their throughput while decreasing their fuel consumption. Emisshield Certified Installers can apply our technology in the field on existing refractories or metals during scheduled operational shutdowns with proper surface preparation and inspection. When Emisshield® is applied to the hot face of an industrial units lining, radiant and convective energy from the burners and hot gases are absorbed at the surface of the coating and re-radiated evenly throughout the unit, creating a uniform temperature distribution.

Emisshield Benefits:

  1. Uniform Temperature Distribution
  2. Substrates Run Cooler
  3. Reduced Downtime
  4. Optimize Energy Efficiency
  5. Increase production
  6. Increase life of the substrate

In addition, Emisshield Inc. works with manufacturers and suppliers of many different components in your processes. These manufacturers and suppliers understand the importance of Emisshield and bringing value-added products to their customers.
