firebrick-blueCeramic firebrick is great for residential, commercial, and industrial applications. It is most effective when used in lining kilns, furnaces, fireplaces, ovens, and fireboxes. The reason is because it can sustain excessive heat without melting or fusing together. Some materials used in ceramic firebrick are:

  • Silica
  • Hydrated aluminum silicates
  • Sand and quartzite
  • Bauxite
  • Kyanite
  • Disapore
  • Carbon
  • Magnesia


Since ceramic firebrick can sustain a high amount of heat without being affected, many industries use it for insulating purposes. An industry that utilizes ceramic fiber insulation is Petrochemicals for applications with crude oil refining.

The process of refining the oil involves using a significant amount of heat to boil and evaporate the crude oil.  Because of the high temperature required to heat up the oil, it is necessary to use materials that can efficiently transfer heat throughout the tubes and containers. By using ceramic fiber, the low thermal conductivity leads to lighter and thinner linings but even more effective heat retaining capabilities.

Ceramic fiber insulation is installed as layers to insulate and protect the structures from thermal shocks, chemical attack, and abrasion wears. As a result, it is important to use top quality ceramic fiber insulation because it can prevents the loss of materials, cuts down any wasted time, and more importantly, protects your employees and other personnel.
