The Three Keys to Reliability
Sometimes what you do know is not enough. It is also important to understand that “you don’t know what you don’t know”. The Three Keys to Reliability is a simple protocol used by Thorpe to emphasize the critical aspects of lining systems required to maximize reliability and performance; a protocol with important consequences.
1. Proper Material Selection
2. Engineered Lining Design
3. Experienced Installation Crews
Thorpe understands the material science relating to multiple refractory product forms used in various industries under different conditions and applies this knowledge to each application to assure the proper selection.

A perfectly designed system with the best materials will still only be as good as the quality of the installation. Thorpe maintains field crews and supervision that are experienced with complicated, critical installations and who understand the importance of installing a lining as it is designed for it to have the expected performance and reliability.
Thorpe believes that paying appropriate attention to all three keys is the best way to assure the long term reliability of your linings.
