Well Filler Systems

Well Filler Systems

Monocon design, manufacture, install and commission a range of refractory storage and delivery systems for both wet and dry refractory materials and castable products.

Our Well Filler system, shown to the right, has been designed using existing known "Monocon Technology" to provide an effective and reliable system for controlled refractory dispensing.

The machine can be supplied as a stand alone unit or supplied as a package solution with some of our other Ladle repair machines and castable refractories. In addition, Monocon also design and supply specific and custom made refactory dispensing systems such as Cold Set / Dry Vibe Application systems for Tundishes.
