Bricking Solutions Adds to Refractory Maintenance Lineup

Bricking Solutions launched its latest refractory maintenance solution, the Split Bedding Cart, which features dual decks rather than a single deck to provide clearance for a forklift or skid steer for increased access during refractory brick installation.

“Customers asked for a bedding cart with a split deck for easy access while bricking the bottom of the kiln, and we listened,” said Jeff Mirisola, global sales and service manager at Bricking Solutions. “By giving our customers options between the single deck and the split deck, they can find the right product for the way they work.”

The standard split unit has a minimum width of 1.3 meters (4.25 ft.) and fits kilns between 4 to 7 meters (13.08 to 23 ft.) with sizing customization options. The typical deck features a load capacity of 793 kg (1,750 lb.) per side. Curved bottom braces allow forklifts and skid steers to easily drive over and move to the front or back of the cart while inside the kiln. Rubber feet on the sides of the cart protect newly bedded brick.

Along with allowing equipment to travel through the kiln to other work areas, the clearance also allows personnel to easily pass, improving efficiency and safety. Bricking Solutions recommends using the Split Bedding Cart with a bricking machine, especially in larger kilns where masons cannot reach the spring level while bricking.  

Like all Bricking Solutions equipment, the Split Bedding Cart is made with high-quality materials that are rigorously tested for safety. The machine is manufactured with high-strength 6061-T6 aircraft-grade aluminum, which is as strong as steel but only two-thirds the weight. The design is simple to assemble and disassemble with pin connections between parts. Removable fall guards are a standard feature and steps make placing pallets of refractory safer and easier for brick masons.
