High Temperature Refractory
Refractory blankets are used for a variety of high temperature applications. These may include but are not limited to: Furnace, Kiln, & Oven Linings; Boiler & Turbine Insulation; Incinerator Linings; High Temperature Gaskets a& Seals; Duct, Stack, & Flue Linings; and Fire Protection.
Fiberfrax® alumino-silicate fibers exhibit high temperature stability for continuous use at temperatures up to 1430°C (2600°F). All Fiberfrax fiber products are characterized by, low thermal conductivity, low heat storage, excellent thermal shock resistance, light weight, and superior corrosion resistance.
Kaowool® by Thermal Ceramics is the original asbestos replacement material invented by Babcock and Wilcox. The great advantage of Kaowool® over other refractories is its very low density and ease of handling. The density of Kaowool® is approximately the same as dense fiber glass blanket. This ease of handling offsets the cost difference as compared to castable or refractory brick making Kaowool® a solid insulation value.
The Thermal Ceramics Superwool® family of products offers a versatile alternative to traditional insulation solutions for commercial, industrial, and transportation applications. Superwool® products are special alkaline earth composition fibers that have been uniquely engineered to offer advantages in high temperature insulation applications with low thermal conductivity, low bio-persistence, low linear shrinkage up to their use limit.
