SoliBloc™ modules are unique monolithic fiber modules that incorporate our premium Generation III fiber technology. Generation III fiber technology provide in a high fiber index and thus a lower shot contents. In result, these modules offer exceptional thermal insulation, high strength, and are suitable for applications with high gas velocities. They are available in both Refractory Ceramic Fiber and Low Bio Persistence fiber variants.
Unlike standard stack or folded modules which are made from compressed blanket strips, SoliBloc™ module consist of two sections of
SoliSlab™ arranged in an edge grain orientation. These sections are held together by two stainless steel tubes placed transversely through the modules, away from the hot face. The edge grain orientation and interlocking of the fibers enable the SoliBloc™ modules to withstand high gas velocities without fiber erosion.
SoliBloc™ modules are available in densities from 160 t0 220 kg/m3 and are typically supplied in a standard dimension of 305x305 mm. Thanks to our high fiber index, our 220 kg/m3 modules deliver the same performance as a traditional 240 kg/m3 module.
We offer 2 standard grades of Refractory Ceramic Fiber based SoliBloc™ modules, with a classification temperature of 1260°C and 1430°C. SoliBloc™ X-grade is our standard version with a classification temperature of 1260°C, and is recommended for use in temperatures up till 1100°C continuously.
As we believe that reducing energy consumption and minimizing CO2 emissions in the production process will become part of sustainable environmental drivers, thermal insulating properties will become more important. SoliBloc™ X-grade, utilzing the Generation III, Ultra Low Shot fiber technology is enabling to deliver higher thermal insulation performance with the same thickness as a standard fiber module.
SoliBloc modules are anchored to the furnace casing with one of our 3 standardized anchoring systems.
- Center fix direct weld system,
- Center fix tube and stud system,
- Side fix anchor system system
All offered anchoring systems come with all required items for the fixing system and the hardware is offered in various grades of stainless steel.
SoliBloc™ X-grade is part of the SoliBloc monolitic fiber module product range. With a variety of 2 Refractory Ceramic Fiber (RCF) grades, the famous ‘ULS®’ Low Bio Persistence Fiber grade and our latest addition the SoliBloc Pro with a classification temperature of 1500°C, we are offering the most extensive range temperature range of monolitic fiber modules in the market today. With our different chemical compositions we are able to provide a solution to nearly every atmosphere or temperature.
