Logs




Pyro-Log® is an uncompressed monolithic mass of ceramic fibre. Pyro-Log®​ fibre is available in 152mm to 203mm (6in and 8in) thicknesses with densities up to 240 kg/m3 (15 pcf). Manufactured in three temperature grades, R, ZR and C, the Pyro-Log®​ fibre can be used in a wide range of applications. Pyro-Log®​ fibre is the basic building block for all Pyro-Bloc® applications.

All Pyro-Log®​ fibre is produced with a special lubricant that allows the fibre to be intensely needled to attain densities up to 240 kg/m3 (15 pcf). This lubricant also adds pliability which allows true multidirectional compression during installation. At moderate temperatures this lubricant burns out and the fibre becomes rigid enough to stand on. This feature, unique to Pyro-Log®​ fibre, assists during installation and provides the durability and toughness necessary for long life.

Pyro-Log® product features:

  • Resistant to devitirification at high temperature
  • Pyro-Log® is available in standard uncompressed densities up to 240kg/m3 (15 pcf). Lubricant in the Log allows for extra compression during installation, ensuring good, tight joints
  • Combination of high density and opacity of its fibres to infrared radiation maintains the low thermal conductivity of Pyro-Log® to high temperature
  • Pyro-Log® has the unique characteristic that on firing it converts from a relatively soft, easily compressible slab to a tough, near monolithic structure with a board-like texture
  • The hard surface obtained after firing gives exceptionally high resistance to abrasion by flowing gases. This resistance can be enhanced by spraying the hot-face surface with Cerapreg or Kaowool® hardener (up to 40-45m/s) or by coating with Kaowool® White Cement (up to 50-55m/s)
  • The almost monolithic structure obtained after firing confers on Pyro-Log® some load bearing capacity which can be utilised in lightly loaded hearths
  • Pyro-Log® is easily cut and shaped on site, or pre-shaped in the factory, to accommodate irregular sections or changes of profile, such as from oblong to round cross section in ducts
  • The unique log structure allows us to produce L-shaped corner modules which ensures join-free linings around corners, both inside and outside
  • Thermal shock resistance
  • Good acoustic insulation

Monolithic Refractories: Cast Gun Pump




The Thermal Ceramics business of Morgan Advanced Materials manufactures a family of monolithic products which provide a wide range of innovative solutions for heat-intensive challenges. Available in different formulations, densities, and installation methods - depending on need – our monolithics can be used as primary or secondary insulation, for repair, or for specialty applications.

Our monolithic products feature excellent thermal shock resistance, good strength, and resistance to mechanical impact and molten metals.

Our refractory monolithics are available in three distinct varieties: insulating monolithics, dense monolithics, and special duty monolithics. Depending on composition, water content, and other factors, they can be cast, gunned, rammed, poured, plastered, and (in some compositions) pumped and shot-creted.

Insulating monolithics are lightweight and feature very low thermal conductivity, resulting in significant fuel savings, less need for support steelwork, and increased energy efficiency. These monolithics feature ease of installation, including easy flow characteristics and low gunite rebound loss for time and material savings. They are available in gunite versions and several can be installed by shot-creting or pumping.

Dense monolithics are engineered formulations designed to meet specific property requirements of industrial furnace operators. They are economical, have good strength throughout their temperature ranges, and are available in both dual-use cast/gun and special gunning formulations.

Special duty monolithics are designed for more critical applications. Specifically enhanced properties allow them to outperform conventional monolithics. These high-technology materials include low-cement gunning and casting refractories, no-cement monolithics, plastics for gunning and casting, and very high-alumina-content monolithics. Enhanced properties, such as extra high strength and resistance to chemical attack and abrasion, provide long service life with low maintenance.

Dense




In heat intensive environments, Morgan Thermal Ceramics dense monolithic products can provide exceptional performance, high resistance and insulating properties.

Designed with your specifications in mind we can supply dense monolithic materials ideal for refractory and industrial furnace applications, although they perform adeptly in most general applications.

Insulating




Thermal Ceramics produce a range of Monolithic materials which can be placed in situ by casting, gunning, parging, trowelling or ramming.

Particular grades will be selected depending on the structure to be lined. A lining may be installed using a single material or can be a complex selection depending on the environment/ operation of the lined structure.

Specific grades have been developed for high temperature insulation, metal contact, slag resistance, abrasion resistance or thermal shock resistance.

Thermal Ceramics offer an extensive range of Alumino-silicate and Silicon Carbide based Monolithic grades.

The range has been classified into the following groups.

Insulating – Firelite, Kaolite, Trimor (Blockmix, Coolcast, Extralite, Insulcast, Insulite).
These grades are used for the containment of heat within high temperature operating structure. They can be used for either hot face working linings or as backing linings behind higher density working linings.

Low Cement




Low Cement – Trimor Hicast, Morflo, Higun

As the name suggests these grades are formulated with low cement, typical 5-7%. They also incorporate fine fillers and dispersants which significantly reduce water demand and enhance physical properties. Several grades can be placed with little or no vibration.

Medium Cement




Medium Cement – Trimor Vibrotek

These grades contain cement additions of 10 to 15% and offer easy mixing and installation. They offer excellent resistance to abrasion and thermal shock for general purpose application.

Clay Bonded




Clay Bonded – Trimor Plastics, Plascast, Plasgun

The original monolithic materials were clay bonded plastics/mouldables. Grades today can be supplied, with similar properties, which can be cast or gunned. Clay bonded grades have excellent thermal shock resistance.

Aluminium Resistant




Aluminium Resistance – Trimor Alcast, Albond, Alumor, Alcoat

These grades have been specifically developed with enhanced resistance to corundum growth which can occur when molten aluminium is in contact with refractory materials.Particular grades are available for installing by casting, gunning, veneering or coating.

Phosphate Bonded




Phosphate Bonded – Trimor Plastic, Morbond, Morgun

It is well known that refractory compositions bonded with phosphate binders offer excellent resistant to most molten metals and slags. Grades are available which can be installed by ramming, casting or gunning.

Dry Vibratory




Dry Vibratory – Trimor TV90, TV80

This material is installed dry and consolidated by vibration to form a dense lining. On heating the material the material forms a sintered, strong lining.

Cements & Mortars




Cements and Mortars – Airset, Blakite, Triset, JM

These are fine grained compositions, which can be supplied dry and ready mixed. They are used for bonding bricks or fibre modules in furnace linings.

Special Duty Grades

Silicon Carbide




Morgan Thermal Ceramics offers a range of Silicon Carbide products which are produced by our facilities in South Africa, Germany and China.

The base of all silicon carbide (SiC) products is refractory grade alpha silicon carbide, produced in large electrical resistance furnaces at approximately 2400°C from a mixture of silicon, carbide, salt and sawdust. These refractory crystals are then classified, crushed and graded for use as grog or aggregate in bricks or shapes, or tubes.

The alpha silicon carbide crystals impart high thermal conductivity and refractoriness, low thermal expansion and outstanding abrasion/erosion resistance.

We offer a range of silicon carbide products – self-bonded, nitride bonded clay bonded and HalSiC.

Self Bonded

Many bonding systems are available that inter-connect the alpha silicon carbide grains and in the case of self bonded refractories, it is mainly in a matrix of silicon and aluminium-silicon glass. The bonds in self bonded refractories have been carefully formulated to give specific properties and subsequent performance criteria in any specific application.

Nitride Bonded

The silicon nitride bond phase in these refractories is the key to their superior performance in demanding applications.

The MORSIL™ Nitride bonding system allows Nitride bonded refractories to out-perform other silicon carbide based refractories using silicate, alumina silica, silicon oxynitride and beta silicon carbide bond systems. As with silicon carbide refractories, the base grain for MORSIL™ nitride bonded is refractory grade alpha slicon carbide. The alpha silicon carbide crystals impart high thermal conductivity and refractoriness, low thermal expansion and outstanding abrasion/erosion resistance.

To manufacture MORSIL™ nitride bonded, graded alpha or electric furnace silicon carbide crystals and fine silicon are formed into shape, and fired in a pure nitrogen atmosphere at approximately 1420ºC. The result is a refractory consisting of a mixture of alpha silicon carbide grain in a matrix of alpha and beta silicon nitride, with minor amounts of residual silicon and silicon oxynitride.

Due to the fact that the bond phase grows within existing porosity, there is little to no dimensional change upon firing and a net weight gain occurs.

This bond is mainly responsible for the extremely high modulus of rupture and outstanding oxidation and corrosion resistance of MORSIL™ nitride bonded silicon carbide.

Our MORSIL™ nitride bonded silicon carbide features high wear resistance, high strength, even at high temperatures, oxidation resistance even at very high temperatures, corrosion resistance, thermal shock resistance and high thermal conductivity. This material also features a high decomposition temperature, very low thermal expansion and good tribological properties.

Clay Bonded

Our clay bonded silicon carbide enable thick walled components to be manufactured as it features high mechanical strength and excellent thermal conductivity.  These properties make this material excellent for outer protection tubes for temperature measurement up to 1200°C in light and heavy metal smelts.

HalSiC

Our HalSiC range is generally used for kiln furniture due to its properties which include:

  • Withstanding temperatures up to 1600°C
  • Compact SiC matrix
  • Corrosion resistance

The properties above make this material an excellent choice for manufacturing large components. 

Our engineers have the skills, knowledge and capacity to work with you to select the right material for your product in your application.  Our global support network means that we can service customers from virtually anywhere in the world.
