Silica sleeve type EKS-K

The sleeve type EKS-K is produced of silica yarn resistant to very high temperatures with the temperature strength up to 1200 °C. Silica fibre as opposed to ceramic fibres, is not subject to any hygienic restrictions within the EU. The used fibres are characterized by a perfect thermal stability and keep their original structure to the amount of the maximum temperature of use. An additional advantage is the lack of any metallic inclusions, which enables using for insulation e.g. of live ducts and a very low weight loss after ignition. Silica sleeves are an excellent material for thermal insulation of hot elements in various types of industrial systems. Sleeves with the diameters up to 50 mm are produced on braiding machines, while larger diameters - on special looms for multi-layer fabrics, which gives excellent material density even at diameters in the range of 500 mm. The main activity area of application is thermal insulation of pipes, heaters and ducts with the maximum operating temperature specified in the table below.
