Boiler Technology

Water Skirts and Ash Hoppers are often found to be a problem area in boilers.  These areas show much more wear that would be expected.


This happens because normal refractory concrete loses strength in warm wet conditions when the cement bonding phases convert to give a material with much lower strength.


Durocast have developed Duroshield P which has geopolymer bonding which is resistant to conversion.

This is a strong, rapid hardening product which is resistant to clinker build up.  If necessary steel fibers can be added to enhance the impact resistance.


The material is easy to install and can be mixed in a normal pan mixer or installed by pneumatic pump. These  products can be supplied in a coarse or fine grade to meet the application requirement.


Please contact Durocast for more information.

Mandela Day Challenge by Durocast


In celebration of Nelson Mandela Day, 18 July 2014, Durocast along with their staff donated R2500 to Granny’s House in Vereeniging, to contribute to their high electricity bill that is currently in arears.


Granny’s House takes care of abandoned, neglected or abused children, and children whose parents are unable to care for them between the ages of 1 year and 18 years old.  They are committed to supporting the children that they are taking care of. 


They are currently having difficulty meeting their expenses, which is disadvantaging to the children.  We would like to challenge other companies to also contribute towards their running costs.

Any form of donation would relieve their financial burden.
