Inproheat Industries offers three different high efficiency refractory bricks from Morgan Advanced Materials and FRC Global that are uniquely suited to different applications.
Refractory bricks are comprised of ceramic material and are known for their resistance to high temperature environments and low thermal conductivity properties.
Each of the three refractory bricks offered by Inproheat Industries has its own unique product features. They are as follows:
These bricks are high magnesia made primarily from periclase, formed by high temperature firing of synthetic magnesium hydroxide or natural magnesium carbonates.
These bricks come in Alumina-Silica and High Alumina types. They offer stability and high density with good chemical and atmosphere resistance. Heavy-duty firebricks offer marked resistance to spalling, exceptional load-carrying capacity at high temperatures, and maintain the ability to withstand chemical attack and high heat conditions.
These bricks are of Alumina-Silica and High Alumina type compositions, but are lightweight and lower density with a higher percentage of air bubbles dispersed throughout the brick. Insulating firebricks also offer lower heat conductivity, plus the ability to withstand chemical attacks and high heat conditions without weakening. They conduct less heat away from their work within a furnace, and exhibit lower heat storage. Therefore, they heat quickly and economically to the operating temperature and also cool fast to speed turnarounds.
Basic bricks are used in applications where their greater resistance to fluxing agents are needed, such as iron oxides and alkalies.
Various grades of heavy-duty firebricks are available for applications where there is a corrosive environment or where there is a need to provide structural strength and support to a furnace’s cold face.
Insulating Firebricks offer unsurpassed performance in markets requiring structural insulation. Common markets for these bricks include: new Furnace and kiln builders, aluminum electrolytic pot cells, carbon anode baking pits, blast furnace stoves, steel reheat furnaces, petrochemical heaters, technical ceramic kilns.
