Due to the properties of the LO-MASS® components, firing of diesel particulate filters (DPF) and automotive substrates can save enormous costs. The production of thin, lightweight plates and profiles provides more efficient utilization of the furnace and maximum cost benefit per kiln unit.
The high mechanical strength at high temperature allows a high load of filters per plate, as well as the potential to design an energy saving system.
In addition to offering increased strength and output, LO-MASS® components 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.
Kiln furniture for use in the manufacture of DPF, filters and substrates are mainly based on Advancer®,
N-Durance® or Hexoloy®. These products offer excellent performance and chemical resistance with the fired product.
With the proprietary KilnWorks® customized software analysis, Saint-Gobain engineers will design and develop kiln furniture that is ideal for your application.
