High Temperature Fibre and Refractory Insulation Solutions for Iron and Steel

The Thermal Ceramics business of Morgan Advanced Materials provides high temperature fibre, refractory and microporous insulation products and systems for thermal management in critical high temperature environments. Our products are used extensively in the Iron and Steel industry to help improve the efficiency of processes by reducing energy consumption and operating costs and improving reliable productivity.

The Iron and steel processing industry presents some of the world’s most challenging operational environments for equipment and people. Our advanced fibre, refractory, and microporous materials are routinely chosen to fulfil critical applications at every stage of the Iron and Steel process and our products are used by all of the world’s top twenty steel producers. 

Our insulating refractory materials, monolithics, are available in a wide range of formulations for unique back-up and hot face lining applications in continuous casting, forging and reheaters across the Iron and Steel industry. Pyro-Bloc® modules provide the furnace design a superior lining solution on the hot face in blast furnaces, hearth furnaces, and heat treatment furnaces. K®, JM™, TJM™ IFB offer superior performance solutions to lining designs. 

For sever atmosphere conditions we offer engineered solutions with our Denka® Polycrystalline blankets. Denka blankets feature excellent resistance to high temperatures, mechanical stresses and chemical attack for reliable operation and extended service life. Like all Thermal Ceramics products, they provide effective and reliable insulation, reliability and reduce energy costs at key stages in iron and steel processes including steel ladles, tun dishes and vacuum ladles.

Porextherm WDS® LambdaFlex® and WDS Flexipor® flexible microporous insulation systems make them an ideal solution for use as steel ladle insulation design where they have been shown to improve energy balance by as much as 50% and provide for increased volume capacity. 

With manufacturing facilities and sales offices in more than 50 countries, we are able to supply iron and steel producers all over the world with the most appropriate system for the job. Contact us today to discuss your application.
