    What is Refractory Ring and wall

    I have been told I must replace the refractory ring and wall in my heating system?

    What exactly is this?

    Only Jason, me and you,

    (boiler guy) - ever even heard of Timkens, much less worked on 'em...(;-o)

    I think at most, I had maybe 15 total in the 40-years I was in the biz, that I actually had as regular customers; maybe 3 or 4 more as "casuals." They were incredibly simple, yet ever so vexing.

    I still have hook ignitors and a few "wall plate/"targets" left - or did until recently.

    It's not that I never heard of them or worked on them it's just once I able to put my back to one I never had the urge to look back.
