Ceramic fiber materials and refractory bricks are two different materials, and their main differences are as follows:
1. Material composition: Ceramic fiber materials are composed of ceramic fibers, usually high-temperature ceramic fibers, such as alumina fibers, aluminum silicate fibers, etc. Refractory bricks are made from various refractory materials (such as high alumina, silicon, magnesium, etc.) through formula design and sintering.
2. Physical properties: Ceramic fiber materials have a lighter weight, higher flexibility, and lower thermal conductivity. After heating or cooling, the kiln can enter in an extremely short time; Refractory bricks, on the other hand, are usually heavier, have higher hardness, good thermal conductivity, and good heat storage performance. They often warm up slowly and cool down slowly. After stopping heating, it takes four to five days to cool down before entering.
3. Usage temperature: Ceramic fiber materials have high high-temperature resistance, generally able to withstand high temperatures up to 1000 ℃ or even up to 1500 ℃. The high-temperature resistance of refractory bricks is relatively limited, and they are usually suitable for use at around 1000 ℃.
4. Application field: Due to the good high-temperature resistance and flexibility of ceramic fiber materials, they are commonly used in the insulation lining of high-temperature furnaces, pipeline insulation, aerospace and other fields. Refractory bricks are widely used in the lining, insulation layer, furnace wall, and other high-temperature equipment.
Overall, there are significant differences in material composition, physical properties, usage temperature, and application fields between ceramic fiber materials and refractory bricks. According to specific needs and different usage environments, selecting suitable materials can achieve the best results.
