Minteq International Inc. (Minteq) is a leader in
the application of monolithic refractories for iron and steel making.
It developed these systems
Minteq’s strategy for Blast Furnace repair and
relining is simple; provide the lowest cost per ton of iron over the
life of the vessel. This strategy is executed with superior refractory
products, especially our industry leading shotcrete materials. In
addition to our shotcrete materials, we offer castables, pre-cast
shapes, gunnables, burden cap and blow-in lining materials for the Blast
Furnace stack, bosh, and cast house floor.
Our system of products, application equipment, and years of experience, create value for the iron maker. These include:
Increased lining life for improved productivity and cost
Improved furnace fuel and consumption efficiencies
Remote furnace lining installations (Outside of the US and Canada)
Manual shotcrete and gunnable applications globally, with industry leading rebound rates
is the global leader in monolithic refractories, and we have applied
this capability to designing state of the art shotcrete and gunnable
materials for Blast Furnace Operations. The combination of superior
materials, blast furnace experience, and our outstanding team of Steel
Mill Service professions, generates superior value for iron making
operations around the world.

Blast Furnace (BF) Runner Mixes – Ferrorun series
is a family name of silicon carbide –alumina based mixes for BF
runners. FERRORUN R is a ramming mix series application for BF runners.
Its chemical composition and physical properties combine to guarantee
low consumption values with longer service life and less repairs.
Further requirements from our valued customers, initiated the
development of castable mixes for BF runners called FERRORUN C with
Ferrorun R series
