High temperature insulation is not only about helping industries maintain efficiency, or ensuring electrical devices function consistently. It plays a key role in fire protection. Insulation for fire protection is something we specialise in, and our mica-based and microporous high temperature insulation products and technology cut across many industries, providing essential safeguarding against fire risks in various situations and settings.
Elmelin proudly manufacture and supply insulation for the aerospace industry. Safety is a paramount priority when it comes to commercial air travel, and while flight security is important, so is high temperature insulation. Aircraft routinely face extreme conditions but must maintain their mechanical stability, while ensuring the safety of passengers and flight staff.
Any solutions to airborne transport must also take weight into consideration, as well as strength and resistance.
Because it is both lightweight and strong, alongside its superior insulation and thermally resistant qualities, mica is the perfect match for high temperature insulation in the aerospace industry.
The natural cleavage qualities of mica in its mineral state make it ideally suited to production of mica sheets. This is where the mineral will break along smooth planes. Mica minerals have hexagonal atoms in sheet-like arrangements. Due to being hugely versatile, whether rigid or flexible, there are many mica sheet uses for a wide range of industries. …
There is no escaping the fact that there are significant environmental issues in the automotive industry, with road transport still a major cause of greenhouse gas emissions, producing around 15% of CO2 emissions in the EU. One of the ways vehicle manufacturers can help bring these emissions down is through the application of industrial insulation. Elmelin supports the automotive industry and vehicle manufacturers and, in so doing, helps environmental protection through contributing to efficiency and excellence in performance.
Mica is a critical contributor to many industries, businesses and manufacturing processes because of its natural qualities and benefits as an insulation material. However, before it gets to this stage, mica is a raw material, and in its natural form it must first be sourced and extracted through mining. …
High temperature insulation touches people’s everyday lives. While we serve specialist sectors and industries, such as foundry and steel, automotive and aerospace, we also provide insulation solutions for products that are part of the fabric of how we live today. These products include fan-assisted and convection heaters, microwave ovens, toasters, hairdryers and other white goods.
5 June 2018 is World Environment Day, and while this year’s theme is Beat Plastic Pollution, there are other, critical areas of activity where industries, businesses and organisations can make a difference to the world around us. One of these is industrial insulation.
Industrial insulation is wide-ranging, applied to different sectors in a variety of settings, and here, at Elmelin, we play a key role in supplying high temperature insulation solutions.
These involve mica and mica-based products, and microporous materials and a multi-faceted approach to their application.
Here we look at the general importance of insulation in helping to combat climate change, and how industrial application works in practice in certain key industries.
At the heart of the foundry is the furnace, and furnace safety essentials are at the core of how the foundry industry operates. Furnaces require high temperature insulation to work effectively, efficiently and safely. Foundries involve an inherent degree of risk, because furnace processes involve constant intense temperatures and the movement of molten metal.
