Morgan Thermal Ceramics announces that it will be featuring a range of products that promote energy conservation and operational efficiency in the power generation and general maintenance markets, in booth #5644, at the POWER-GEN International 2011 Conference.
The conference will be held December 13-15, 2011 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Central Halls, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Product offerings to be highlighted include those for new boilers, revamping existing boilers, or treating hot spots. On display will be a range of mastics designed for pumping into voids caused by deteriorated insulation, grouting cracks and gaps in refractory linings and Superwool Plus material, ideal for furnace lining insulation in both the power and nuclear markets.
Superwool Plus blankets feature a low biopersistent fiber with no workplace environmental control concerns. With its lower thermal conductivity, the material enables thinner linings, resulting in significant weight and energy savings.
Available also in folded modules and bulk form, Superwool Plus fiber offers improved insulation properties that have allowed manufacturers to adopt advantageous new insulation designs reducing the thickness of material required or simplifying assembly.
Steve Chernack, manager of applications engineering, states, "Superwool Plus fiber has up to 20 percent lower thermal conductivity than competitive insulations and is 17 percent more energy efficient than traditional Refractory Ceramic Fiber (RCF) and any other Alkaline Earth Silicate (AES) insulations." He adds, "A breakthrough in the company's advanced manufacturing control has allowed the product to be engineered to maximize the fiber content. Its low bio-persistence also makes it a good replacement for those looking to move away from RCF insulation."
For general power maintenance areas, Morgan Thermal Ceramics will be highlighting a range of pumpable products that are ideal for providing re-insulation behind boiler tubes in sidewalls, seals and floors. They can be used for both immediate in-service repair of hot spots or standard off-line maintenance. To be showcased will be the latest developments using Superwool fiber: Superwool Pumpable and Superwool HT Sealcoat Pumpable.
Steve Chernack notes that the pumpable products provide excellent insulation value without compromising the original structure. "The key to the usefulness of these materials is that they allow fast, economical and effective repair while keeping the unit operational, thus saving on production."
With over 30 manufacturing facilities and sales/marketing offices worldwide, Morgan Thermal Ceramics is uniquely positioned to supply the global power generation market with the optimal system for the job anywhere round the world.
