Additive manufacturing of a refractory plate prototype for slide valve




Deguisa was created in 1966 as a company dedicated to the engineering, design and manufacture of refractory linings and materials along with combustion and control equipment. Since 1974, Deguisa has a factory in Amurrio for the assembly of slide valve systems and their commercialisation. The company provides as well solutions for multiple sectors such as the iron and steel, ceramic frits, incineration, electric energy generation, waste management, cement and petrochemical industries.
