Basalt packing type ETS

Premium basalt yarn applied in this packing is characterized by excellent thermal and mechanical resistance. Thanks to the applied strand, these particular characteristics are enriched with high elasticity of created packing. As opposed to products of glass and ceramic fibres, the basalt fibre is not a substance with an irritating effect for the skin and respiratory tracts, which enables using without any personal protection equipment.

Application

Basalt packing is a resting sealing, ideal to be used in furnaces, flaps, hatches, holes 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).
