Purpose Built Test Furnace for Insulating Fibre

The ability to perform tests “in-house” brings expertise and product development at a much faster rate than could be achieved by only using external laboratories. The Thermal Ceramics business of Morgan Advanced Materials’ Research & Development facility now houses a new purpose designed gas-fired kiln which has the ability to test all forms of furnace wall/roof construction and to measure resulting cold face temperatures. With the fast heating capability required for performing the three standard fire tests (cellulosic, hydrocarbon and RWS - tunnel fire up to 1350°C), we are better able to obtain rapid results on which to base.

Being able to provide our customers with fast and accurate results accelerates progress in the development of better insulation systems.
