Morgan Thermal Ceramics high temperature insulation fiber board and shapes are manufactured to provide excellent performance in any application which requires high modulus of rupture (MOR) and a rigid form. The product is designed to resist erosion, vibration, mechanical stress, and can be easily customized on jobs to fit any installation.
High temperature insulating Fiber Boards and Shapes are manufactured for use as back-up insulation or installed as hot face application solutions ranging from furnace linings to burner surrounds to hot tops. Thermal Ceramics manufactures in three chemistries Refractory Ceramic Fiber (RCF), Superwool® Low Biopersistent Fiber (LBP) and Polycrystalline Fibers (PCW).
High temperature insulating Fiber Boards and Shapes are typically used for thermal management and the customisation options are broad. We offer standard formulations, sizes and shapes typically found and required in the market. In addition, we have the capability to make custom forms to precise requirements.
Our range comprises three fiber grades:
- Low Biopersistent Fiber (LBP) products boards and shapes made from our unique low biopersistence Superwool® fiber
- Refractory Ceramic Fiber (RCF) also known as Alumino Silicate Wool (ASW) boards and shapes made from Kaowool®, Cerafiber®, Cerachem®
- Polycrystalline Fiber (PCW) boards and shapes made from Alphawool® and Denka
LBP Fibers (Superwool®)
Our Superwool® Fiber Boards and shapes can be designed to be rigid, self-supporting insulation or manufactured into a flexible solution, with both providing exceptional performance-to-weight ratio and are resistant to most chemical attacks. Superwool® Fiber Boards and Shapes offer a potential for space savings of up to 50% thickness when replacing insulating firebricks or castables.
Our range of flexible Superwool® Fiber Boards and Shapes feature good dimensional resilience after compression and makes utilization very easy where rigid products are unsuitable. Superwool® is the only low biopersistence fiber available with a classification temperature of 1300°C (2372°F).
Superwool® is an engineered solution that is ideally suited as an alternative solution to RCF based fibers in some applications. Benefits of Superwool® fibers are advantageous in many applications:
- Lower thermal conductivity over some RCF fiber materials resulting in an improved insulation performance by up to 20%
- Our Superwool® Plus fibers feature less shot resulting in a tighter fiber matrix
- Lower density grade of Superwool in place of an RCF material features a material weight savings up to 25%
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.
All our RCF Fiber Boards and Shapes can be machined to tight tolerances to create standard shapes or custom designs to meet individual needs.
Kaowool® Fiber Boards and Shapes feature low thermal conductivity, excellent thermal shock resistance and low heat storage for effective energy savings. These Fiber Boards and Shapes are mechanically strong and dimensionally stable up to 1649°C (3000°F).
Cerafiber® Boards and Shapes are also resistant to chemical attack and thermal shock resistance. They are classified to 1400°C (2552°F) and perform exceptionally well in application with direct flame impingement.
Thermal Ceramics PCW fibers are ideal for high temperature and chemically aggressive applications. These fibers are manufactured by sol-gel technology using processes specifically designed to produce fibres of defined dimensions.
Alphawool® and Denka boards and shapes are more resistant to acid and alkaline solutions than conventional alumino-silicate fiber products and have exceptionally good thermal insulation characteristics. They are classified to 1600°C (2912°F). They are both offered as rigid or flexible products.
The advanced manufacturing processes allow us to provide Fiber Shapes to meet customers’ exact application requirements; ranging from simple sections such as fiber boards, sleeves and cones to complex configurations. These products are used to protect equipment, conserve energy, and improve process performance in demanding high temperature applications such as:
- Furnace, kiln and oven hot face linings
- Insulation for appliances and equipment used in high temperature processing
- Combustion chambers, for domestic appliances
- Heat shields
- High temperature gaskets and seals
- Contact parts for non-ferrous metals processing including molten aluminium
We have the applications expertise to design, manufacture and install optimum thermal solutions for individual customer challenges. Contact us to discuss the requirements for your High Temperature Insulation Fiber Board and Shapes applications.
