Nutec Bickley's reputation as world leader in insulation systems is well deserved. Our patented ceramic fiber Jointless™ modules (US Patent 6,422,862 B1) for temperatures up to 1350°C (2462°F), and our retained brick –floating anchoring system for temperatures up to 1800°C (3272°F), provide for minimal maintenance, fuel economy, and extended service life.
Our Jointless™ system consists of monolithic ceramic fiber modules engineered to cover complete walls, doors and roof of kilns and Furnaces. It's a one piece construction continuously shaped with ceramic fiber blanket folded and anchored. Our Jointless™ modules not only eliminate the joints between smaller modules (as commonly found in ceramic fiber linings), but also eliminate the gaps typically located around the flues. These joints / gaps are usually a source of maintenance difficulties and a major source of contamination for ceramic whiteware products.
For higher temperature applications, our retained brick - floating anchoring system, using Nutec Bickley's proprietary tongue and groove brick design, greatly extends the life of the refractory linings. This system allows the refractory to expand and contract parallel to the walls, while refractory alloy anchor hooks and dense alumina anchor bricks restrict movement of brick away from the kiln or furnace shell. Bickley's retained brick - floating anchoring system has proven to be an excellent solution for high temperature applications.
