AmeriSpline®, Patent Number: 6,330,269

AmeriSpline® Technology vs. Steel:

  • Homogenous heat transfer throughout the pipe circumference and the extruded splines
    • Instantaneous cooling of slag
    • Slag adheres to the hot face of the panel and interlocks with the extruded spline
    • Slag layer provides for thermal and electrical insulation of the panel hot face
    • Little spline wear during operation
  • Splines are an integral part of the pipe
    • No thermal stresses on the pipe created by welded slag retaining bars or cups
  • Spline geometry is designed to mechanically interlock and support slag
    • Uniform slag layer
    • Better thermal insulation

Roofs with 100% AmeriSpline® Technology:

  • Customers report:
    • Uniform and thick slag cover at all times on panel hot face
    • Slag interlocked between the extruded splines
    • No slag drop off during roof swings to the stop!
      – This is a serious potential safety consideration
    • Slag cover protects the roof against erosion, radiation and arcing damage
    • Panels operate 10-40°F cooler than standard steel technology
    • Customers report 400%+ operating life increases compared to conventional steel pipe technology without or without slag retaining in both roof and sidewall applications.

Bottom-line = Longer Panel Life + More Furnace Up-Time + Higher ROI!
