Refractory Kiln Wrecking

Remote Solutions for faster, safer working in inhospitable environments

The continual need to replace kiln and furnace linings inevitably incurs loss of production time and has in the past required inefficient and hazardous manual demolition operations.

Utilising our compact, robotic plant, Gnat UK is able to considerably reduce 'down-time' and increase productivity, whilst maintaining a high level of safety.

Through experience in the aluminium, copper and cement industries Gnat UK provides expert knowledge coupled with the wide ranging capabilities of our fleet of Brokk and Husqvarna demolition equipment and Atlas-Copco Breakers. The Brokk 40, 180 and Brokk 330 series have been used successfully on contracts where previously machinery would not have been the considered option.

Thanks to these powerful robots’ compact design footprint, access to restricted areas of work is no longer an issue and because the units are Remotely Operated from y our engineers from a safe distance, Down-time needed to cool furnaces or kilns after production is considerably decreased.

The power produced by these robots is such that when breaking out copper and aluminium furnace linings the acclaimed saving in down time has been up to 200%
