Since our formation in 1969, Vulcan has built a reputation on supplying customers, what they need, when they need it. We supply many specials to customer design or will work with the customer and supply a specific solution to the problem.

We specialise in applications and materials, which are more demanding than “off the shelf” solutions. Why design your equipment around a “standard” product, when, for only a minor investment you can have something that truly meets your requirements.

Vulcan has proved on numerous occasions, the value of using a “bespoke” manufactured item, delivered in the quantities needed, when you require them.

It’s what Vulcan calls CONSTRUCTIVE REFRACTORY SOLUTIONS and goes further that just supplying a product. It helps customers to;

  • Explore new product possibilities
  • Reduce overall operating costs
  • Improve plant availability
  • Reduce inventory
  • Maintain and improve margins

Materials we specialise in include;

  • High alumina with purity to 99.5%
  • Alumina silicate
  • Silicon carbide bonded with mullite, oxide and silicon nitride.
  • Zirconia and zircon based materials.

At Vulcan we have complete control of the process.

  • Raw material procurement with full traceability.
  • Blending and mixing.
  • Tooling control.
  • Production (pressing and casting)
  • Drying and firing.
  • Final inspection and despatch.

We are able to offer fast turn round of requirements, short lead times and full traceability, together with additional services such as X-raying and XRF analysis.
