Refractory Armour Systems are designed to provide retention and reinforcement for thin wall refractories and to complement dense hydraulic and chemically bonded refractories in resisting erosion.

Dickinson Industries (Pty) Ltds’ Refractory Armour Systems include Hex Metal (Hex Mesh), as well as Flex Metal (Flex Mesh). A full range of lining ancillaries including adjustable corner tabs, edge tabs etc. are also available for the easy connection of armour systems and to protect the mother steelwork when plant geometry dictates directional changes in gas flow.


Refractory armour systems are typically employed in areas that are subject to the flow of erosive gas streams within process plants; particularly at high temperatures. Applications are found in vessels or sections that are subject to erosion or abrasion; including Cyclones, Flue Gas Lines, Reactor Vessels, Windboxes, Fan Casings, and Burner Quarls.
