According to recent market estimates, the global market for industrial thermal blankets is expected to grow by over 9% by 2026. Discover how industrial ceramic fiber blanket can be the key to achieving your goals. Thanks to its high resistance to thermal shock and ease of installation, this solution is widely used in various industries today.
This article will explore the benefits and applications of industrial thermal ceramic fiber blanket in equipment for heat loss reduction and worker safety.
What is Ceramic Fiber Blanket?
Ceramic fiber blankets are a set of interwoven fibers designed to resist high temperatures. These blankets vary in chemical composition, thickness, and density, elements that dictate the end use or operation temperature range. They maintain low thermal conductivity, high resistance to thermal shock, and are easy to install.
These blankets come in rolls packed in standard boxes for distribution. However, taking special care during storage and transport is essential, as this material is sensitive to mechanical wear and can become heavy if it absorbs moisture.
Although mainly used in industrial settings, such as furnaces and kilns as well as in fire protection systems. Ceramic fiber blanket is also used commercially to dryers and a wide range of insulation covers.
When choosing the right blanket, it is crucial to consider factors such as density, maximum operating temperature, chemical composition, and the specific needs of the equipment or industrial process in which it is to be used. Check out below our available options:
- MaxWool® 2300 Refractory Ceramic Fiber Blanket. Its chemistry is based on alumina and silica. These blankets can withstand temperatures up to 2300⁰F (1260⁰C).
- MaxWool® 2600 Refractory Ceramic Fiber Blanket. In addition to having the characteristics of MaxWool® 2300, this type of blanket contains Zirconia, which allows it to be used at temperatures up to 2600°F (1425°C).
- Pro tip: Other NUTEC offerings include a Low Biopersistent (LBP) Fiber Blanket variant called SuperMag®. Its chemistry is composed of Calcium, Silica, and Magnesium and can withstand temperatures up to 2200°F (1200°C).
Also, NUTEC has a Passive Fire Protection Blanket line called MaxShield™. These are used in a variety of passive fire protection applications, and it's composed of Refractory Ceramic Fiber (up to 2300°F or 1260°C) or Low Biopersistent Fiber (up to 2200°F or 1200°C).
It should be noted that correct installation is crucial to ensure optimal performance. Following installation recommendations and guidelines can provide proper coverage and maximum effectiveness.
