Due to the extreme load and internal temperature, the biggest challenges of shaft kiln operation include resisting the immense pressure from the expanding refractory lining. Production faces costly maintenance and a loss in production quantity, if the kiln is not properly protected.
Skamol is among the market leaders in developing products that provide the durability and energy cost savings that can be achieved with back up insulation.
Skamol has developed several back up insulation materials which help increase the production quantity and quality: M-EXTRA, SUPRA , HIPOR 450, and POROS-bricks, as well as calcium silicate insulation boards.
Some of their benefits include:
