Schad installs refractory throughout in the iron and steel industry. We perform full re-lines, as well as maintenance repairs on primary and auxiliary items on location and off site.
In the iron and steel industry, our clients are some of the largest, most prominent companies in the world.
We are currently performing a full line of refractory services for integrated mills, mini mills and foundries throughout the United States.

Throughout the company’s 80+ years in the industry, Schad has completed thousands of iron and steel refractory projects. These projects have ranged from as small as off-site turnkey projects including relining tilt runners, spare doors and runner covers; to large-scale projects including full re-lines of walking beam and pusher style reheat furnaces, rotary hearth furnaces and induction furnaces.
Our iron and steel refractory projects include, but are not limited to:
- Induction Furnaces
- In March 2018, a Tennessee Iron Foundry presented us with a unique problem. They didn’t need help installing or repairing a furnace, they needed one taken out. Read more about this project here.
- Reheat Furnaces
- In June 2017, Schad reconditioned a reheat furnace at an integrated steel mill in Ohio. The project was challenging because of an ambitious schedule, and the need for several trades. It also required work in various areas of the furnace. As a result, the project required a great deal of communication as well as a vast set of skills to complete. Read more about this project here.
- The services that Schad provides in the re-heat furnaces encompass nearly all types of materials and installation methods. These include:
- Vibration cast
- Pre-cast/off-site work
- Burner maintenance
