The Pyro-Bloc® Ceramic Fiber Module is the market leading insulation solution for furnace lining systems. Pyro-Bloc® Modules are the only ‘monolithic’ refractory fiber module on the market and are ideal for fast installation of high temperature linings in industrial heaters, thermal oxidizers, boilers and furnaces. Pyro-Bloc® Modules are available in Refractory Ceramic Fibers (RCF) and Superwool® Low Biopersistent Fibers.
In addition to the Pyro-Bloc line of products, Christy also carries Thermal Ceramics Pyro-Fold, Pyro-Stack and Z-Blok® blanket modules as well as Pyro-Log fiber slabs.
Our Pyro-Bloc range comprises two fibre grades:
- Alkaline Earth Silicate Fiber (AES) log made from our unique low bio-persistence fibre Superwool®
- Refractory Ceramic Fiber (RCF) log made from, Cerablanket® (R grade), Cerachrome® (C grade), and Cerachem® (ZR grade)
The Pyro-Bloc® Modules offer all the thermal insulation performance of our fiber blanket products, in an uncompressed modular form and are available in densities up to 240 kg/m3 (15 pcf).
AES (Superwool®) High Temp Insulation Modules
Superwool® offers exceptional performance-to-weight ratio and is resistant to chemical attack. Superwool® is the only low bio persistence fibre available with a classification temperature of 1300°C (2372°F).
Superwool® fibers are exonerated and are not classified as carcinogenic by IARC or under any national regulations on a global basis. They have no requirements for warning labels under GHS (Globally Harmonised System for the classification and labelling of chemicals). In Europe, Superwool® fibers meet the requirements specified under NOTA Q of European Directive 67/548. All Superwool® fiber products are therefore exempt from the classification and labelling regulation in Europe.
RCF Refractory Ceramic Fiber Modules
All our RCF Pyro-Bloc® Ceramic Fiber Modules are lightweight and strong, with low thermal conductivity and heat storage capacity for effective energy savings.
Cerablanket® (R grade) and Cerachem® (ZR grade) offer excellent chemical stability and strength and have superior acoustic as well as thermal insulation characteristics. Cerablanket® (R grade) is classified to 1316°C (2400°F). Cerachem® (ZR grade) is classified to 1427°C (2600°F).
The Pyro-Bloc® Ceramic Fiber Module is engineered with an internal anchoring hardware system that allows fast and secure attachment to furnace casings. The monolithic blocks can easily be cut to shape (for example around openings) on site if necessary.
Pyro-Bloc® Modules provide easy to use, efficient thermal lining for all types of high temperature processing equipment such as:
- Homogenising furnaces
- Process heaters
- Ceramic kilns
- Annealing furnaces
- Heat treating furnaces
- Thermal oxidisers
- RTOs (Regenerative thermal oxidizers)
