ArmorMax Engineered Products, a business unit of the MAX Group of Companies, opened a new manufacturing, warehousing and repair facility in Lebanon, Pa. ArmorMax provides industrial manufacturers with a full range of custom-sized and custom-engineered ceramic fiber and refractory products, as well as off-site repair and refurbishment of refractory-lined components and equipment. The company can also fully rebuild furnaces, kilns and other refractory- or fiber-lined heat-containment vessels. The site will double as a regional warehouse stocked with Morgan Thermal Ceramics’ insulating and refractory products.
The 50,000-square-foot facility houses four overhead cranes with capacities ranging from 10 to 25 tons. It also contains a rail spur, loading dock with leveler, and large 16- x 20-foot and 25- x 25-foot doors to accommodate oversized equipment shipped to and from the site. The ArmorMax East plant is equipped with in-house auto-CAD capabilities that enable staff to design, engineer and install custom refractory linings for all types of heat-processing equipment, including doors, ladles, tundishes and preheat stations. ArmorMax also engineers, fabricates and installs custom-designed lining systems to help industrial manufacturers reduce fuel consumption and related emissions.
