Refractory Materials and Ceramic Fibres : 18 May, 2013
Tests carried out by Morgan Advanced Materials, a leading manufacturer of engineered products for a range of thermal insulation applications, have revealed the company’s latest Superwool Plus Blok insulation offers significant performance advantages over calcium silicate in the area of thermal insulation for kiln linings.
Alumina nanofibre international research results released at SAMPE 2013
Refractory Materials and Ceramic Fibres : 14 May, 2013
ANF Technology, the manufacturer of the high-grade alumina nanofibre Nafen, which is being made available at commercially viable, industrial volumes, is exhibiting at the Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering’s (SAMPE) annual event, where the company will present quantifiable performance data recently undertaken by the globally recognised Fraunhofer Institute’s polymer research center (PYCO), the University of Moscow’s materials science department (MISiS) and the University of South Carolina.
Super-heat magnesium oxide ceramics available as crucibles
Refractory Materials and Ceramic Fibres : 06 May, 2013
Aremco's Super-Heat 502-676 Magnesium Oxide (MgO) ceramic crucibles are now available for processing ultra-high temperature refractory metals, slags and superconductor compounds to 4000F.
Flexible ceramic heatshield solves temperature issues at isolated Caspian Sea oil platform
Refractory Materials and Ceramic Fibres : 15 November, 2012
The ability to retrofit a heat shield in a harsh and isolated environment without having to force a costly shutdown led to engineers specifying ZircoFlex flexible ceramic heat shield on a Caspian Sea oil platform. The close proximity of the HVAC air handling unit to a flare stack had led to surface temperatures of up to 80C, risking crucial reliability issues for the production facility.
Rebuild dramatically grapples with PZT corrosion problem and improves kiln efficiency
Refractory Materials and Ceramic Fibres : 29 October, 2012
Morgan Technical Ceramics has seen significant improvements in the operation of four of its sinter fire kilns in Southanpton, England, following a rebuild using involving high temperature insulation, supplied by sister company Morgan Thermal Ceramics. The rebuild project has resulted in dramatically reduced energy costs for each of the four kilns, while delivering assured production efficiency, durability and increasing the total lifespan of the kilns.
