WEERULIN develops and produces refractory products for the steel industry. We offer a full range of shaped and unshaped products. WEERULIN offers refractory solutions from the completely fireproof monolithic raw material mix up to the fully assembled vacuum snorkel with integrated argon gas pipes.

Our philosophy: We supply refractory concepts, tailor-made to the individual customer’s demands. We recognise that every steel mill is unique. Each plant needs an individual solution – and this must be innovative and cost efficient.
