Ceramic Fiber Cloth is a compression packing for very high temperature duties. It is manufactured from an exceptionally stable fibre material that is soft, non-irritating, non-hazardous & is not limited by World Health Organisation or European Union restrictions.
These heat resistant fibres are produced using advanced chemical fibre technology. They are spun into a flexible yarn in the UK, together with a low percentage of glass fibre and Inconel wire reinforcement.
Typical Applications :
Compression packing of Ceramic Fiber Product Hi-Temp are recommended for very high temperature static sealing duties or slow rotary applications. It replaces ceramic yarn packing and radiation seals on BOS plant, and ceramic packings and vessel lid seals on secondary steel making plant.
Other examples include door seals for annealing furnaces at steelworks, kiln packing, protective surfaces on pottery kiln cars, and stem gland sealing on valves handling very high temperature gases.
Ceramic Fiber Textile resist Hi-Temp include braided insulation sleeves, webbing tapes, ladder tapes, twisted ropes, lagging ropes, blankets and paper, and woven cloth. These are used for thermal insulation and heat resistant duties where flexibility and resilience are required.
