Z-Blok refractory fibre modules are lightweight, insulating linings made in block form for direct attachment to industrial furnace and kiln shells.
Z-Blok refractory fibre modules are lightweight, insulating linings made in block form for direct attachment to industrial furnace and kiln shells. Z-Blok modules are designed to simplify and speed up furnace lining installation while providing a wide range of significant operating benefits. Z-Blok refractory fibre modules are formed from three basic components: · An insulating portion consisting of an accordion-pleated, continuous piece of Morgan Thermal Ceramics refractory fibre materials: Cerablanket, Cerachem or Cerachrome Blanket. · Stainless steel reinforcement and mounting hardware made up of beams positioned within the folds and connected by tabs to a channel on the cold face of Z-Blok module. The channel is designed to slide freely on the stainless steel clip which is attached to the furnace shell.
- Compression banding to restrain the block in a 305 x 305mm dimension.
After attachment to the furnace shell in a parquet pattern, the compression restraints are removed and the refractory fibre expands. This produces a tight, gap-free insulating furnace liner with all metal parts isolated from high temperatures because of their position adjacent to the cold face.
· A Z-Blok furnace offers the furnace user, as well as the builder, many advantages:
- Fast installation
- Efficient attachment design
- Gap-free lining
- Immediately available for operation
- Low heat storage
- Thermal shock resistance
- Mechanical shock resistance
Refractory Fibre Blankets in Modular Block Form .
MAXIMUM CONTINUOUS USE TEMPERATURE
Cerachem Blanket: 1425°C
Cerachrome Blanket: 1425°C
The maximum continuous use temperature depends on the application. In case of doubt, refer to your local Morgan Thermal Ceramics distributor for advice .
Z-Blok refractory fibre modules are furnished in a number of different configurations depending on service requirements.
The choice of the type of Blanket used in the construction of Z-Blok modules should be determined by the characteristics and operation of the furnace equipment to be lined. Operating temperature (steady or cyclic), nature of ware, energy used (electricity or type of gas or oil), furnace atmosphere, etc are some of the factors that must be taken in to account. We would recommend, for the optimum blanket selection that the Morgan Thermal Ceramics expert, and/or local representative, be consulted in the initial stages of lining design.
