Woodings hydraulic mud guns incorporate the latest technology
to create the most effective mud guns available. Woodings
does not depend on outside suppliers to provide components.
We manufacture the equipment completely, including our own
cylinders and swivels. Our technical personnel visit the customer’s
site and plan the best application of our products to the
operation and maintenance requirements.
mud guns are extremely sturdy, yet very easy to operate.
After the barrel is loaded with mud, it requires only 2
functions to plug the hole — swing the gun against
taphole and extrude the mud.
also provide mud guns and taphole drills for electric furnace
applications. These designs are pedestal mounted or a variety
of trolley mounted equipment is available to suit the specific
local site conditions.
Woodings' ability to produce large fabrications with strict dimensional tolerances
is a perfect match for the critical ASME requirements of EAF shell components.
All welds NDT checked.
All furnace shell components are manufactured to strict ASME welding requirements
and NDT inspected prior to shipping.
Water Cooled Hood
The demands of pressure vessel requirements call for critical
welding. Woodings delivers. Our water cooled hoods are fabricated
from either schedule 40 or schedule 80 pipe and meet the most critical performance
and Pneumatic Hammers
drifters are specifically designed to provide the best performance
under the harshest environments in the steel industry.
innovative approach is evidenced in the WHR-600 Drifter.
Combining hydraulics and pneumatics, this drifter offers
high torque and high frequency impact. The result is a clean,
uniform taphole without damaging high-energy impact. The
taphole is opened much more quickly resulting in lower operating
Hydraulic Mudgun and Taphole Drill
Furnace and Smelting Furnace Applications)
Woodings’ innovative approach to equipment design
has resulted in a new, combination mud gun/tap hole drill
idea for use in smaller furnaces.
The new equipment provides faster, more effective and more
predictable results than hand lancing and plugging while
increasing worker safety. The new gun/drill combination is
a portable, self-driven, battery powered and all-pneumatic
unit. The equipment features a 400 psi gun with a 3-inch
nozzle and a 1¼-inch taphole

Large furnace shell equipment, such as degassers, require strict dimensional
tolerances and adherence to ASME specifications. Meeting these requirements
is what Woodings does day in and day out.
Fabricated to order, these covers have either refractory
castable or refractory fiber.
As with our ladle covers, these fabricated preheater covers
have refractory castable or refractory fiber.
more than 50 years, Woodings Industrial Corporation has been
producing blast furnace taphole drilling tools. The requirements
for constantly longer tapholes, smaller drilled hole diameters,
harder taphole muds and less stopping time has demanded new
technology and design. At the same time, cost effective solutions
have become a paramount issue. Woodings has met that challenge
on the conditions at the taphole, we guarantee that one of our
types of drill tools will perform at the highest level. Your
costs of drilling per tap will be reduced in comparison to other
drilling tools. Furthermore we are prepared to design and fabricate
tailor made tools to meet your technical demands, or to manufacture
tools according to our client's own drawings.
Working in alliance with Franz Grabe, the leading manufacturer
of weld overlay techniques for the iron and steel industries,
Woodings can provide products designed to slow down wear rates
in high wear and abrasion applications. In order to meet many
diverse applications, the overlay can be cut, rolled, or formed
without fracture or distortion.
