The largest insulators are hang-fired and require structures capable of supporting high loads at elevated temperatures. With LO-MASS® high strength silicon carbide kiln furniture systems from Saint-Gobain, you can be certain they will stand up to the most challenging conditions.
The largest insulators are typically suspended from a frame made of advanced silicon carbide support beams and stringer beams (Silit® SK, Crystar® 2000, Advancer® or N-Durance silicon carbides®) and supported by posts made either of Carbofrax® oxide bonded Cryston® or AnnaSicon® nitride bonded silicon carbide. A special kiln car base design is required in order to resist the high load applied on the posts. Saint-Gobain is the industry leader in the design and development of advanced silicon carbide materials and kiln furniture systems.
Sustainable and energy efficient: High thermal conductivity, high strength and reduced cycle times from LO-MASS® systems result in significant energy savings.
Long-lasting productivity: LO-MASS® systems are built to last through numerous kiln cycles, while offering reduced thermal mass and cycle times. Advanced silicon carbide components are thinner, lighter and stronger than traditional kiln furniture, with excellent oxidation resistance and shape retention for longer service life.
Adaptable: LO-MASS® components are customizable and flexible for high voltage insulator firing systems
