The hearth in a cremation retort typically “wears” due to high temperatures, chemical attack, thermal shock and exposure to abrasive elements. The Cremation Systems Quick Change modular hearth tile system utilizes pre-cast and cured tile specially designed to offer the highest resistance to these adverse conditions. Hearth replacement with a traditional cast-in-place hearth requires the use of jackhammers, refractory mixers, specialized labor and on-site curing. The Quick Change Hearth system offers the fastest repair option in the industry. Remove the worn or damaged tile and replace. Our Quick Change system is always in stock and ready for immediate shipment from our warehouse.
