Cost and sustainability are key factors when comparing traditional kiln furniture and LO-MASS® kiln furniture systems. LO-MASS® systems, constructed of advanced silicon carbide (SiC) materials, are thinner, lighter and significantly stronger than traditional kiln furniture.
Developed to meet the demand for improved energy efficiencies in high temperature applications, LO-MASS® systems from Saint-Gobain minimize mass while maximizing strength, resulting in greater kiln capacity and reduced firing cycles. It also means increased automation compatibility for loading and unloading.
In addition to offering increased strength and output, LO-MASS® systems provide the sustainability every company wants. Saint-Gobain is the industry leader in the development of silicon carbide materials, which are resistant to oxidation at higher temperatures.
With our proprietary KilnWorks® customized software analysis, our engineers will design and develop a high performance solution for both periodic and continuous processes.
When given the choice between traditional or LO-MASS® kiln furniture, LO-MASS® silicon carbide components are the obvious choice for the whiteware industry.
Sustainable and energy efficient: High thermal conductivity 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 whiteware and porcelain tableware firing systems.
