Superwool® Plus is a high-temperature insulation wool that is reportedly 17% more energy efficient than traditional refractory ceramic fiber (RCF).

Superwool® Plus, a high-temperature insulation wool, is 17% more energy efficient than traditional refractory ceramic fiber (RCF) and any other alkaline earth silicate (AES) insulations, according to the manufacturer. The material can be used for furnace linings in the iron, steel and aluminum industries, as well as all applications requiring high-temperature processing. This enables users to increase manufacturing process efficiencies and make significant cost savings associated with energy usage.

The material can provide excellent insulation in high-temperature environments with a classification temperature of 2192°F (1200°C). A breakthrough in the company’s advanced manufacturing control has allowed the product to be engineered to maximize the fiber content. Thus, it features up to 20% lower thermal conductivity than competitive insulations, as well as enhanced energy saving properties with much improved handleability.

Superwool Plus delivers high performance with less mass and blanket thickness than alternative products. Thus, less insulation can be used, providing weight and cost savings. The insulation fiber blanket features high tensile strength, and is available in blanket, modules, Pyro-Bloc® modules, paper, and bulk (chopped and unchopped).

“Industries are under increased pressure to improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions,” says Ron Wainwright, technical director. “In addition, regulatory agencies in the U.S. are beginning to review RCF for classification as a substance of very high concern. In light of this, Morgan Thermal Ceramics is committed to providing a new range of products to replace RCF, which offer more value and satisfy the needs of the future. The Superwool Plus range is an ideal alternative to RCF, helping customers to increase energy efficiencies throughout their plants.”
