Bricking Solutions Custom Bedding Cart

The Bedding Cart not only allows for the movement of bedding refractory as the bedding process progresses, but provides stair steps to facilitate the placement of refractory to or just above the spring line on larger kilns. Congratulations to Ultratech Cement - Kotputli Works for their new Custom Bedding Cart.

When bedding out the bottom half of a kiln, staging needs to be erected to provide a flat surface for the mason to place brick to or slightly above the spring line.

 The Bedding Cart also is a storage area for refractory and rolls up kiln as work progresses.

In addition, the deck is on wheels and holds one to two pallets of brick allowing the brick to move in conjunction with the work.

A pre built bedding cart is a one time cost for a fixture that can be used over and over again whereas the standard method of erecting wood staging involves reoccurring cost of labor and material to build.

 In addition, bedding carts help increase the speed of refractory installation thus reducing outage time and increasing production.

By providing a safe and ergonomically correct working platform for the masons, there is a reduction in fatigue and lost time accidents.

New Steel Fittings

Due to a change in the manufacturers process to reduce material in the fittings for cylinders and master valves we will be changing our fitting supplier. The new fittings will be steel and have a better collar for applying pressure to take out hose, a better swivel feature and a rubber washer instead of a metal washer.

Due to this change the thread type in the cylinders and master valves had to be changed. This will make ordering spares a little tricky. All cylinders and master valves that have a “P” stamped in the bottom of it will accommodate the old and new fittings. However the old threads will not accommodate the new fittings.

So it is important to be sure which fittings the customer will need. All cylinders that are sent out previous to Dec 2013 will be old fittings. All new equipment in 2014 will have the new steel fittings. This will also effect the cylinder assemblies and master valve assemblies part numbers as follows:
OLD - AF103
OLD - AF139

NEW - AF103S
NEW - AF139S

NEW - ASM4058S
