SILCASTACK Combination modules

Ceramic fibre products

SILCASTACK combination modules are an economic alternative to 1,600°C full-fibre modules because only that amount of the expensive 1,600°C fibre is used that is actually needed for the particular heat transfer.

The SILCASTACK combination modules are strip modules and consist of a combination of two different fibre types. The lining thickness and bulk densities of the modules are selected in accordance with the thermal and chemical requirements to be satisfied in the system to be lined. As a rule SILCAFLEX 1,600 °C fibres are used on the hot side and SILCAFLEX 1,430 °C on the colder side.

The combination of the two fibre types is brought about by means of an intermeshing of the individual strips with one another. In this way a reliable and durable bond is produced.

SILCASTACK combination modules are used primarily in the high temperature range at up to 1,450 °C. They are the ideal solution for problems in the high temperature range and are used for example in the ceramic industry and in forging furnaces in which high demands in respect of thermal and/or chemical resistance are placed.

They are suitable not only for side walls but also for the doors and ceiling.

Through the use of SILCASTACK combination modules in these areas of application longer service lives are achieved and the susceptibility of the systems for requiring repairs is reduced. Laying is carried out direct on to the surface of the furnace or with back-up insulation materials such as ceramic fibre blankets, boards etc.

Securing of the combination modules is carried out with our well-known heat-resistant anchoring system.
