In our last blog, we discussed what insulating firebrick is and the process in which it is created. Read on to learn to advantages of using insulating firebrick in your next project!
Insulating firebrick is effective in decreasing heat losses through the furnace lining and in the refractory. As a result, using insulating firebrick can save you money that you would have to spend on fuel.
If you use insulating firebrick, you can also see a decrease in waiting time because the space you are insulating tends to heat up faster. Since insulating firebrick is very effective in decreasing any heat losses and also features a lower heat capacity of the insulating refractory, it can cut heating times lower.
Less Material Needed and Lower Weight
Since insulating firebrick is so effective in decreasing heat losses, you can have a thinner furnace wall to have the thermal profile you require. Insulating firebrick is also lighter in weight and as a result, lowers the weight of your furnace.
It is important to note that there is a wide variety of insulating firebrick that range in thermal efficiencies and strengths. Most have a service limit of up to 3000°F and can be utilized in kilns or furnaces.
