Ceramic fiber insulation products are readily available from just one company. Insulating firebrick products along with the ceramic fiber insulation options provide effective insulations for industrial processing, manufacturing and work areas which require or lead to extremely high temperatures. Effectively, these products are able to withstand temperatures as high as one thousand degrees Celsius or three thousand degrees Fahrenheit.
These application materials can be used for thermal protection in a great variety of high temperature industries which will be using or manufacturing products and materials from iron and steel, aluminum, copper, glass and cement. Heavy industry is already well catered for. So too, the small sized business which specializes in designing and manufacturing artistic glass features. No matter the size of the processing area, insulating materials, primarily firebrick and ceramics, provide industrialized companies with high temperature stability which allows for continuous use up to the temperatures mentioned above.
All fiber based products are characterized by low thermal conductivity, low heat storage, excellent thermal shock resistance, light weight and superior corrosion resistance. The ceramic fiber insulation line is currently available in a number of forms. There are also a few advantages to be had when using firebrick and ceramic surfaces. These include cost saving, good timekeeping possibilities, a reduction in material requirements and generally light weights.
Cost saving originates from decreasing heat losses through furnace linings and within a refractory. Time-keeping practices are enhanced due to decreased waiting times. The space used for insulating tends to heat up faster. Insulating firebrick surfaces, as effective as they are in decreasing heat losses, feature lower heat capacities and also cut heating times lower. As a result of this, less material is needed and lower weights are possible.
