When firing at high temperatures, the material flatness, purity, thermal, and creep resistance properties of your kiln furniture remain critical to produce a consistent product. Saint-Gobain offers highly tailored materials for the production of solid oxide fuel cells.
As an industry leader in the development of innovative refractory materials, Saint-Gobain produces low-mass kiln furniture and plates that are thinner, lighter and significantly stronger than traditional kiln furniture.
Developed to meet the demand for improved energy efficiencies in high temperature applications, LO-MASS® systems from Saint-Gobain minimize mass while maximizing strength, resulting in greater kiln capacity and reduced firing cycles. The uniform heat distribution also produces a more consistent product.
Plates made from Crystar® recrystallized silicon carbide or silicon carbide with oxide coatings offer high strength and creep resistance, as well as flexible shaping capabilities.
When higher purity is required, the Alundum® and Alundex® alumina, mullite, zirconia product portfolio offers high strength, creep resistance, chemical compatibility and controlled porosity. Norfoam® ceramic foams also can be used as a creep resistant barrier layer.
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.
Saint-Gobain engineers provide a proprietary KilnWorks® customized software analysis to design and develop kiln furniture that is ideal for your application.
LO-MASS® kiln furniture components are the obvious choice.
