The main function of the ceramic fiber blanket is to shield materials and equipment against exposure to high temperatures. The pursuit of advancement and innovation in the fiber industry has resulted to the introduction of fiber blankets as a safer alternative to hazardous asbestos. The ceramic fiber blanket is designed for low thermal conductivity with exceptional properties of temperature stability, meaning that it can handle high temperatures of up to 1260oC.
Industrial Function of the Ceramic Fiber Blanket
Ceramic fiber blankets are lightweight and have low conductivity, with absolutely no dryout period. Moreover, fiber blanket products are available in a variety of formulations of thermal characteristics, as well as a wide range of dimensions and thicknesses. The functionality of the blankets is mainly preferred in industrial applications, for operations that are subjected to high temperatures such as reformers, boilers, power plants and furnaces.
When choosing the ideal type of ceramic fiber blanket for your industry, consideration is required. What kind of environment will the ceramic fiber blanket be used in? Our line of soluble fiber blankets are recommended for environments with lots of people. They are seen as a safer option because they significantly reduce damage to the human cell. This variety of blanket is made of low bio-persistence fibres. Otherwise, when inhaled they may result in hazardous effects to human beings, with some classified as likely human carcinogens. Therefore, it is important for industries to consider using fibres that are easily dissolved and evacuated through the body system.
