ECRS / METALOCK has performed several mechanical and weld repair projects on kiln tires. The severity of the crack, the size of the tire, the alloy the tire is manufactured from and the customer’s objectives all play a part in the repair process that we recommend and perform.On large cross section tires with a large per centage of the cross section affected by the crack a weld repair is generally required.On smaller cross section tires a mechanical repair process can be implemented.ECRS / METALOCK has designed and assisted in the manufacture of a two piece kiln tire.
This tire was approximately 4” thick x 16” wide. The crack was approximately 3 ¼” deep x 12 ¾ in length.
The repair process was a mechanical process utilizing our proprietary Mini-Keylock repair / reinforcement components.
