Hot Mill - Tunnel Furnace
Wet Rolls for Tunnel Surface Stabilizer Roll
Wet Rolls for Tunnel Furnace
Our water cooled rolls have been performing in tunnel furnaces throughout the world for decades.  They perform in atmospheres as high as 2450 deg F (1340 deg C). The rolls are typically made of proprietary alloy tires welded to a carbon steel shaft. We supply these rolls either with a castable refractory or without the refractory.  We have supplied the tires separately for in-house installation as well.
Dry Rolls for Tunnel Furnace
Our dry rolls are comprised of statically cast trunions (ends) welded to a centrifugally cast roll body with our unique locking mechanism.  They perform in atmospheres as high as 2450 deg F (1340 deg C).  Pro-Tech has developed many boutique alloys that are crafted for special conditions in a tunnel furnace.  Additionally, the Pro-Tech dry rolls will provide abundant fuel savings through reduced heat loss in the furnace.
