THE NEW GENERATION OF REFRACTORY INSULATION BLOCKS
At present, many furnaces have insulating linings made of refractory ceramic fibres. This technology resists temperatures up to 1400°C. However, their constituent fibres are classified as carcinogenic, mutagenic and toxic to reproduction (CMR). Two substitute technologies now exist: polycrystalline fibres and high-temperature bio-based fibres. Yet the cost of the former is rather high and the latter cannot withstand temperatures exceeding 1150°C, under favourable conditions.
It is against this backdrop that our new PUREBLOX 1400 technology was created. It meets the new health and safety, environmental, technical and economic challenges of the industrial sector.
PUREBLOX 1400 solution :
This solution has been devised to make implementation easier and to optimise assembly times.
At the end of the furnace lining's life cycle, the PUREBLOX 1400 will not be affected by the compulsory and fastidious procedures dictated by hazardous waste treatment regulations.
As thick as current insulation (310 mm), TRB's PUREBLOX 1400 offers cumulative thermal insulation equivalent to CRM-classified ceramic fibres. A PUREBLOX 1400 brick does not pose any risk to the health of operators and withstands temperatures up to 1400°C.
