High-temperature fiber insulations are fibrous insulations, varying in flexibility, density, and composition, with or without binders. These insulation products are available in flat sheets, rolls, boards, or loose fibers. These AES fibers are designed to be bio-soluble i.
ASTM C – 18a Standard Specification for High-Temperature Fiber Blanket Thermal Insulation
Products are classified into five types by maximum use temperature and five grades by density. The standard contains requirements for thermal conductivity, density, maximum use temperature, non-fibrous shot content, linear shrinkage, aastm tensile strength. For comparison purposes, the maximum thermal conductivity of Grade 3 material is 0.
It should be noted that not all manufacturers of high-temperature fiber products utilize the ASTM C standard for their products.
High-temperature insulation products are often used as an alternative to fire resistance-rated shaft enclosures.
Applications include kitchen exhaust grease ducts, ventilation ducts, stairwell pressurization ducts, smoke extraction, chemical fume exhaust ducts, and refuse and trash chutes.
They may be used to cover plastic pipe and cables c8892 limit flame spread and smoke generation in fire-rated air plenums. These insulation systems are listed and labeled by nationally recognized laboratories. Pneumatically applied high-temperature fibers are typically used on applications where it would be difficult to adhere blankets to a surface.
What Is Average? – Insulation Outlook
Aetm they are not yet covered by an industry specification, an ASTM specification is in development. The composition can be described as follows: The basic types of materials are loose, inorganic fibers either RCF or AES combined with a liquid, water-based chemical binder. The fibers are made from mineral substances such as silica, alumina, calcium, and magnesium processed from the molten state into fibrous form.
The liquid binder is made from inorganic materials: The pneumatically applied product is separated into three types based on the chemistry and upper use temperature use limit: The liquid binder consists of a mixture of both organic and inorganic colloidal silica materials, and is typically added in sufficient quantity to provide the fibers with necessary adhesion to the satm surface; cohesion to one another; and the required physical properties of the installed, dry insulation.
Also, this type of fiber insulation is typically dimensionally stable with exposure to the maximum rate temperature for the particular type I, II, or III.
The surface to which pneumatically applied high-temperature fiber insulation is applied is typically prepared with weld pins and wire mesh, aatm latter being applied a distance off the surface 1 inch less than the finished thickness. The pins and wire mesh ensure the insulation material c8922 firmly applied and will resist the effects of vibration and external forces.
