Elmelin specialises in an innovative range of microporous high-temperature insulation materials that are used in a wide range of applications – including aircraft, military vehicles, nuclear power plants and furnaces. These materials are designed to give superior performance in all conditions. …
There are over 30 different types of mica in the mica group of minerals. However, there are a few that have a very common rate of occurrence – making up a high percentage of minerals in the Earth’s rocks. Muscovite and phlogopite mica are among the most commonly occurring micas.
As foundries continue to evolve, new technology and safety measures are rapidly being adopted. Our foundry and steel mica insulation materials are an example of this evolution, now playing an essential role in supporting the foundry processes.
Cement and glass manufacturing are continuous process industries that require advanced and thermal solutions to optimise their output. Both manufacturing sectors depend on heat for processing. This means they depend on controlling this heat to ensure consistency and quality in their end-products. Thermal solutions for continuous processes centre on furnace lining materials. These include mica and microporous insulation.
This blog looks at the challenges the petrochemical industry faces when it comes to the environment. It also specifically focuses on the part that microporous technology and mica products play in helping the industry meet these challenges.
In this blog, we will outline the growing need for high temperature insualtion in the petrochemical industry. The global market in high temperature insulation materials is growing. Statistics MRC has reported that it accounted for $3.6 billion in 2017, and predicting that this figure will reach $7.9 billion by 2026.
