Morgan Advanced Materials announces the availability of a full product range of insulating firebricks (IFB) ideal for the ceramics market, including kilns, furnace linings, and cyclical furnaces.
Manufactured by its Thermal Ceramics business, ten different grades are available to meet the temperature needs of all applications, from 2300°F to 3300°F. Along with superior products and worldwide distribution, Morgan also offers engineering support to for the development of buildup or combination shapes for specific applications.
The K®-23 IFB is an industry staple, manufactured with a unique slurry casting process that produces low thermal conductivity and good thermal shock characteristics. Rated at 2300°F, the flagship K-23 brick has low density, high hot strengths, good thermal stability, and ultra-low thermal conductivity. It experiences much less shrinkage than competitive products, significantly improving its lifetime. A variety of other low temperature options are available that offer tile brick in large shape format, low shrinkage, and insulation stability.
For high temperature kiln linings, Morgan now offers Insalcor®, a high temperature firebrick with a use limit of up to 3250°F. Insalcor, a bubble alumina brick, is produced with a manufacturing process that features excellent strength and thermal stability at high temperatures and great thermal shock resistance for high temperature cycling furnaces.
Morgan also offers a full package of expert engineering and design services to produce buildup or combination shapes for any specific customer application, including suspended roofs for ceramic kilns. Engineering assistance can be provided through all phases, from product development, through implementation, startup and production.
