Refractory Anchor solutions by SILICON
Years of experience taught us many things and we have found that our global success comes from our passion for quality and ability to service our customers with fast delivery times and competitive prices. Our innovation is made possible by helping our customers solve problems; our experts KNOW what they are talking about when it comes to Refractory Anchors and Rapid Arc Stud Welding Technology.
RAW Services and Contracting
Rapid Arc Welding (RAW) is an innovative welding technology. It has been engineered to solve many of the problems that conventional hand welding has had for many years. With RAW equipment it is finally possible to bridge the gap between efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Rapid Arc Welding is a proven success. SILICON developed into a full service partner in the area of Refractory Anchoring systems and installation. Who better to install your anchors with our RAW equipment than our own professional staff? We are able to offer you the best service and quality possible for all your turnaround needs.
35 years of SILICON
This year marks the 35-year anniversary of SILICON Holding. The organization started in 1982 with the production of refractory anchors in the city of The Hague. Since then, the SILICON organization has not only grown, but has also expanded its range of activities.
SILICON became a well-respected and international specialist in refractory anchoring systems and Rapid Arc Welding with offices in The Netherlands and USA employing around 80 professionals.
THE 3D Refractory Anchor for Pipe Linings: The CVC
Our newest 3D refractory anchors are called CVC (Corrugated V-Anchor Curved) and has many benefits over the older types of 3D anchors. The first major improvement over the older 3D models is on the issue of durability. Our CVC will increase the durability of your whole installation due to the complete redesign of the conventional 3D anchor.
Reinforcing Fibers For Refractory Concrete
Reinforcing fibers can be used to reinforce the refractory material and enhance the thermal shock resistance. The area of influence of the reinforcing fiber is determined by the shape. The total effectiveness of the reinforcing fibers is determined by the length, volume, dispersion, operating temperatures and alloy type. SILICON supplies ME-MIX, a Melt Extracted steel fiber and C-MIX, a corrugated steel fiber. Other steel fibers, D-MIX or synthetic fibers can be supplied on request.

New Green REACH compliant caps
A new safety norm in the Petrochem will soon reject one of the components of plastic caps because it may damage the health once transforming into gas. This component is Di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) also known as DOP which represents 39% of the composition of the caps. As from February 2015 this component will be forbidden. We are one of the first Refractory Anchor System suppliers that found a solution to stay compliant with the REACH regulations.
Incineration Shear Connectors
Shear Connectors are recently also used to support refractory ceramic tiles in a number of refuse incinerators where it offers a good alternative to protect the pipe walls of the furnace compared to shot-created linings onto standard refractory anchors or boiler studs with rammed refractory masses. Depending on the application, tiles offer a more robust and more easily replaceable system as opposed to concrete linings.
The Most Effective Method to Install Refractory...
In recent years, SILICON has made a big impact in several industries by training experts in our Rapid Arc Welding (RAW) technology to provide customers with a highly cost-effective alternative to conventional methods of installing refractory anchors. Combine this with custom-made anchoring solutions and you will see why SILICON is growing exponentially worldwide.
The Quality of Stainless Steel Alloys in Your R...
Manufacturing refractory anchors is not just being able to hammer out a product made with a certain composition. It should be taken into consideration what the intended use of that product is. SILICON is one of the few companies able to support and inform customers regarding the metallurgical preparations for each application.
