The specialized services required for the installation and/or maintenance work on all refractory systems are available from Gouda Vuurvast Services, whose professionals offer the necessary expertise, reliability and quality – 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Our national network of field staff guarantee short lines of communications and rapid response times for the rectification of malfunctions and work on projects, one-day jobs or planned maintenance pursuant to a long-term contract.
Our specialists carry out construction, alteration and maintenance work on refractory systems ranging from waste incinerators, oil cracking plants and gasification plants right through to furnaces. Although our expertise and attention have primarily focused on three industrial sectors, Non-Ferrous & Ferrous, Chemicals & Petrochemicals and Environment & Energy, we now also make use of our many decades' experience to provide our services to all industrial sectors that work with refractory linings. In addition to our installation work, we at Gouda Vuurvast Services also offer our customers added value in the form of cooperation in the development of the customized solution required for their specified needs. Our work on complex and large-scale systems is carried out in projects with third parties such as specialized engineers. Our long-term business relationships with our customers ensure that we are fully aware of their needs and are, both literally and figuratively, familiar with their systems.
We at Gouda Vuurvast Services offer our maintenance services on a 24-hour stand-by basis. Our services encompass maintenance on the basis of a predefined programme of scheduled process stops, scheduled preventive maintenance, and – which is where our strength also lies – carrying out any corrective maintenance that is needed. All our maintenance work is carried out in accordance with detailed agreements. Our services can range from opening a manhole for an inspection, where relevant followed by repair work, right through to the complete replacement of refractory linings.
Many and varied requirements are imposed on refractory materials which, in combination with the specific operational needs of customers such as wear resistance needs, occasionally require technical compromises. Gouda Vuurvast Services' laboratory offers our technologists a wealth of advanced knowledge for their work on devising and developing justifiable customized solutions.
