Bio soluble fibres

THERMOglaf materials belong to the product group of bio-soluble fibres. These materials are also called either AES (Alkaline Earth Silicate) fibres, HTGF (High Temperature Glass Fibre) or bio-soluble fibres. THERMOglaf materials have basically the same properties like THERMOfrax ceramic fibres except the extended range of classification temperature.

Because of the bio soluble characteristics these materials do not be classified as hazard substances. It is mandatory always to consider that these materials are not to be used at and below dew point ranges during furnace operation. Particularly in case of attacks of acid-aqueous solutions and in the presence of chemical reactions with Alkali etc. we strongly recommend evaluation of the application together with our material technology team.

THERMOglaf products made of bio-soluble fibres are characterized by high flexibility, very low thermal conductivity, low weight and low heat storage capacity. These fibres have an excellent themal shock resistance and are suitable for permanent high temperature use up to 1300°C. THERMOglaf products are available in different shapes and classification temperatures.

Advantages of biosoluble fibre products

What are the advantages of THERMOglaf materials for industrial furnaces and Thermal plant units:

  • Extreme low thermal conductivity
  • Extreme less thermal heat capacity
  • Excellent Thermal shock resistance
  • Very flexible for different plant operations
  • Easy and fast installation and replacement
  • Bio soluble and no hazard classification

Our THERMOglaf-Blankets are needled on both sides with a limited shot content, a respectful tensile strength, a high degree of flexibility and an elastic recovery. The THERMOglaf-Blanket 120plus has a particular low shot content and excellent insulation properties. The blankets are completely inorganic products and do not develop any harmful vapor during initial heating-up. In case of wetting the fibers either with oil, water or steam, the thermal properties remain as originally after drying.THERMOglaf-Blankets can be easily cut and to be used for the preparation of high density bio soluble fibre modules. Our fiber products are the basis for energy-efficient refractory linings particularly high thermal resistant up to application temperatures of 1300°C.

Our THERMOglaf-BLOCK modules are manufactured at our production located in Duisburg by using the bio soluble premium quality of THERMOglaf-Blankets. The modules are available in densities up to 190 kg/m3 and dimensions up to 600mm in length. The modules are made individually in terms of dimensions and anchoring system. In addition to standard module sizes our manufacturing is also prepared for wedge modules, bio soluble fibre modules with center anchoring and also with notches. Of course, corrosion and heat resistant anchor material will always be used.

THERMOglaf-BOARD is a vacuum-formed ceramic fibre product. Because of the vacuum shaping technology various shapes can be produced. Along with different types of bio soluble fibres and different additive products the vacuum shaped fibres can be manufactured with a bulk density of 250 – 400 kg/m³ and classification temperatures from 800 to 1300°C. In addition, the surface of the bio soluble fiber vacuum shapes and boards can be provided with hardeners and coatings as required sometimes for special applications.

THERMOglaf-PACK are cut bio soluble fibre stripes. THERMOglaf packing stripes will be cut to the designed insulating thickness. The base material is THERMOglaf-BLANKET. These stripes usually with a common density of 130 kg/m³ are placed perpendicular to the hot flue gas direction and compacted during installation to bulk densities of 150-160 kg/m³. The fixed ceramic fiber packing stripes will be fastened mechanically either with THERMOfixx anchors or glued on expanded metal by using THERMOmixx-K 1300 adhesive. The surface of the vertically laid ceramic fiber packing stripes can additionally be coated with a special coating. This will increase the chemically resistance of the surface and the abrasion resistance required for hot flue gas velocities up to 30 m/s.

THERMOglaf-TEX are bio soluble fibre textiles such as bio soluble fibre ropes, bio soluble fibre packages or bio soluble fibre textures for high application temperatures. THERMOglaf textiles are extremely flexible and have excellent thermal insulation properties. These materials are not classified as hazard substances. Bio soluble fibre textiles consist of long fibres and an organic material supporting the matrix. Additionally, THERMOglaf-TEX fiber ropes and fibre packages are reinforced by either chrome wires or glass fibre. These products are ideally prepared for thermal sealings to be used for flanges.
