Silica packing type EKS

Premium silica yarn used in this packing is characterized by excellent thermal resistance. Thanks to the applied strand, these particular characteristics are enriched with high elasticity of created packing. As opposed to ceramic materials, silica yarn is not a substance with an irritating effect, which enables using without any personal protection equipment.

Application

Silica packing is resting sealing, ideal to be used in furnaces, flaps, hatches, cleanout openings and expansion gaps. Applied e.g. in power plants (coal mills), in metallurgy (coke batteries), founding (forms sealing), ceramic industry (ceramic carts and furnaces) and municipal economy (coal furnaces).
