What is a Refractory Anchor?
Refractory Anchors are manufactured Ceramic, Inconel, stainless steel, and other alloy fasteners that anchor a variety of high temperature linings, blankets, boards, and modules. Its utility is to secure or fasten those materials to line the inside of process equipment and furnaces. Some examples of refractory anchors include: Insul Twist, CupLocks, and a multitude of Y and V shaped anchors.
How do you use Insul Twist and Cup Locks?
Just as the names imply, one twists and one locks. This is done by welding the InsulTwist to the interior layers of a furnace or equipment. After the insulation is added ontop of the secured Insul Twist, it meets the CupLock which is pressed in the insulation to protect the inconel or stainless steel fastener from the heat utilizing its insulation properties. Simultaneously the fasteners will hold the insulation inside the furnace or equipment pressed against the wall and the CupLock. Twisting the Insul Twist will lock it in place providing a snug secure fit. See the Cuplock Utility Illustration for a visual reprisentation.
What is an Insul Twist Refractory Anchor?
Insul Twists Anchors are made from inconel or stainless steel and are made with a unique ridge locking system that works in tadem with the Ceramic CupLocks and Anchor Washers. In order to secure Insul Twist Anchors properly they must be welded to the base or frame.

What are CupLocks?
Cuplocks are one of the many variations of attatchment options for aiding in anchoring lining to high temperature process equipment and furnaces. For the most effective results, Ceramaterials Moldable Mix should be used to help seal the inner core of the CupLock and any other unsealed areas.
