Using a superior quality high temperature ceramic insulation is important for energy conservation, ensure firing efficiency, and provide maximum usability in your kilns.
The furnace area of a kiln can be categorized in the following categories:
• Preheating zone
• Firing zone
• Heating zone
• Cooling zone
These different zones require different high temperature ceramic insulation and should be selected based on the temperature curve of the zones. The firing zone and the insulation zone are the stages where the highest temperatures and maximum cooling phase occurs. Since this is the moment where the materials are the hottest and coolest, it is essential that only substantial high temperature ceramic insulation is used. The following factors to be considered are as follows: intensity, corrosion, thermal conductivity, thermal resistance, etc.
Most basic refractory materials can be categorized in the following areas:
• Deadburned magnesite or magnesia based products
• Deadburned magnesite or magnesia mixed with chrome-containing materials based products
• Deadburned magnesite or magnesia combined with spinel based products
• Deadburned magnesite or magnesia combined with carbon
• Dolomitic based products
These materials make products that possess excellent refractoriness, strength and resistance against high heat, and also improve protection against hydration and moisture.
