Old studs, such as boiler studs, Y/V anchors or tile anchors, are first removed by hand and then the surface polished with a sander
Having a well-functioning refractory system is vital for many furnace systems. The refractory lining and boiler pipe are anchored together by metal elements, so-called studs. These metal anchors have a number of functions including holding the refractory lining in place to protect the boiler surface from the heat when the furnace is in operation. We carry out all work required in this area both on the inside and outside of boilers – either repairing the studs or installing new ones. Our operatives also perform any preparation work that may be needed beforehand, such as removing old studs and smoothing down the surfaces.
A wide range of geometries and anchor types can be welded as well as many different combinations of materials
Our range of services also includes providing advice on the different qualities of material and types of anchor

Old studs, such as boiler studs, Y/V anchors or tile anchors, are first removed by hand and then the surface polished with a sander. Once this has been completed, the new studs are put in place. Qualified stud welders with valid welding accreditation then use innovative welding equipment to carry out the specialist job of welding these studs to the base material. A wide range of geometries and anchor types can be welded as well as many different combinations of materials. The work is carried out quickly and safely, with the whole of the surface of the stud being welded to the base material so that the heat is transferred effectively.
Only qualified stud welders with valid welding accreditation may carry out the specialist job of welding the studs using modern welding equipment
