Vacuum-formed refractory insulation can be brittle, short-lived and difficult to install. They often break quickly, leading to more maintenance or warranty claims. The Pioneer® Hybrid is our unbreakable, cost-effective, all-in-one solution that maximizes heat retention, lowers the cold face temperature and has the flange and burner gasket integrated into the refractory for fast and straightforward installation.
As a consequence of having to comply with strict Ultra Low NOx (ULN) emissions regulation, premix burner combustion in furnaces produces extreme heat. Burner plates and heat exchanger tubes in air heaters and furnaces cannot withstand this leading to overheating, increased maintenance and warranty claims. We developed our Air Heater Insulation to help ensure the longevity and efficiency of your Ultra Low NOx appliance.
Traditionally, gaskets for igniter and ionization pens are made from full graphite or flexible graphite, a relatively costly and sometimes brittle material that requires immediate replacement whenever the pen is removed for maintenance. This is a costly and inefficient process. We developed Kerasil® HD, a more cost-effective and practical alternative that can be re-used during maintenance, while offering unbeatable durability, flexibility and longevity.
While silicone is a high-performance material with unique properties such as high temperature resistance, flexibility and durability, its high-quality raw materials and complex manufacturing processes are costly. Same goes for rubber. Kerasil® is our innovative, cost-efficient solution that consists of a fusion of glass fiberpaper and our Kerasil® silicone or graphite mix. It eliminates waste in cutting and is available in tailormade dimensions.
Silicone has proven benefits in its sealing application in high temperature environments, which is why we developed the cost effective alternative Kerasil®. However, one of the drawbacks of silicone is that creep relaxation can occur. To eliminate the occurrence of creep relaxation, we created Kerasil HD. By adding graphite to our traditional Kerasil® recipe, it retains the benefits of a silicone gasket, while eliminating creep relaxation. A win-win!
