Divisible Jacket Tube

Frequent relining works on kiln burner jacket tubes must be performed by pulling off the jacket tube from the burner. For this procedure the burner must be moved backwards until the necessary space for pulling off is available. Often the burner must be removed from its carriage to perform this work when proper space is unavailable.

Unitherm Cemcon can offer a special option - the jacket tube in divisible execution, to improve the service work for burner insulation essentially. The jacket tube is divided into a front and a rear part, connected with an burner-internal locking mechanism. Locking or unlocking is simply operated from the cold side of the burner.
