Refrex® Expanchor® Lining System (REL)

Why choose for a REL® System?   

Shrinkage, hot spots, dust fall-out due to erosion, and the poor mechanical properties of conventional fibre linings are universal issues where kiln operators often have to deal with.

As a response to this, we developed our Refrex® Expanchor Lining System (REL® system).

What is a REL® System? 

The REL® system is a combination of a flexible, dust tight, high temperature and erosion resistant fabric (Refrex®), and a simple, easy to apply anchoring system (Expanchor®).

This REL system has an excellent performance to counteract for example contamination of sanitary ceramic and porcelain products. Next to this system, our REL system offers an improved resistance of the furnace lining and a better thermal performance. 

This makes the REL® system a high-performance hot face lining to upgrade the existing refractory linings, in ceramic kilns, petrochemical heaters, and other types of industrial furnaces. This also applies to our Refrex® New Linings.


Since 1996, the REL® system has been successfully applied in sanitary shuttle and tunnel kilns, porcelain and glazed earthenware kilns, dust free thermal process kilns (Electronic components). Also in (dust free) heat treatment kilns Laboratory- and test kilns, annealing lines, low thermal mass lined hot gas ducting Petrochemical heaters (roof sections) and combustion chambers.

Refractory lining needs to be renewed?

In case the complete refractory linings needs to be renewed, we call it a Refrex® New Lining (RNL®). This to distinguish between an existing refractory lining and a new refractory lining.

The difference is that instead of a stackbond low thermal mass lining, a layered low thermal mass lining can be used in combination with our Refrex® 1220/1420 fabric.

For further information, please contact us or use the questionnaire Refrex® Expanchor® Lining. A reference list is available upon request. See also our website Wearflex® for more Refrex® products. 

The benefits in summary!

• Reflection of 60% of the radiation heat
• Reduction of maintenance costs
• No further eroding of existing fiber lining
• No further contamination
