Z-Blok™ 3 Modules

  Z - B l o k™ 3 side-fix modules are convoluted blanketmodules which combine the excellent thermalcharacteristics and proven service performance ofThermal Ceramics' Z-Bloks with the ease of installationand versatility of the T-Bar anchoring system.They are made from high quality spun-fibre Blanket, foldedand pre - c o m p ressed to a specified density, and held inposition with 2 stainless steel tubes, mounted transverselywithin the module. The modules can be suppliedencapsulated in plastic film, which ensures dust levels arekept to a minimum during installation. During installation,the modules are further compressed, the resilience of thef i b re and recovery after the restraining bands are r e m o v e densuring tightly-compressed inter-modular joints.

Convoluted blanket anchored modules.

Kaowool S/Cerablanket: 1260°C
Kaowool SZr/Cerachem Blanket: 1425°C
Cerachrome Blanket: 1425°C
The maximum continuous use temperature depends on the application. In case of doubt, refer to your local Thermal Ceramics distributor for advice.

  • The Z-Blok 3 module offers several advantages to both the furnace constructor and the end-user.
  • The Z-Blok 3 module maintains the light weight, thermal efficiency and resistance to thermal shock characteristics of ceramic fibre linings.
  • The decompression of the blanket folds gives tightly sealed inter-modular joints.
  • The resilience of the blanket can accommodate some flexure of the furnace casing without opening gaps between modules.
  • The unique T-Bar fixing system is exceptionally simple and quick to install.
  • The resilient blanket is resistant to mechanical damage.
  • Where damage occurs, individual modules can be easily replaced.
  • It is versatile and the modules can easily be cut, on site to suit awkward configurations.
  • The anchor system is buried inside the module and close to the casing. The metal components are therefore maintain at low temperature.
  • The ASTM 316 stainless steel has a high corrosion resistance and maintains its creep strength to a relatively high temperature.
  • The system ensures that the fibre is pulled back into intimate contact with the furnace casing or any substrate with no bridging of irregularities, thus eliminating convective heat transfer behind the lining.
  • The system readily adapts to include vapour barriers and backing blankets.
