Ceramic insulation products are available in different types or forms. One common type in use is the ceramic blanket which is made of pure fiber materials with great insulation capacities.
Ceramic blankets are ideal to use when dealing with furnaces, boilers, and other high temperature setups and installations.
Their key characteristics include the following:
- Very low heat storage
- Low thermal conductivity
- Thermal shock resistance
- Very high tensile strength
- Sound absorption
- Asbestos free
- No binder, fumes or atmosphere contamination
- Do not require curing or drying cycle
Given those properties a ceramic blanket is a do-it-all material. It is not just heat resistant but can even soundproof a given area. It is also lightweight which makes it easy to install and its flexibility allows for insulating both small and large applications. By doing an excellent job of extending the life of your equipment, ceramic blankets also conserve energy use and results in improved efficiency.
A ceramic blanket offers many long-term benefits to manufacturing plants. Its versatility allows it to be used for a variety of applications that include steam generator lining, incineration machinery, and even in nuclear insulation applications. Other potential uses of this material include:
- Veneer over existing insulation
- Glass furnace crown insulation
- Commercial ovens or dryer insulation
- Stress relieving insulation
- Fire protection
