Innovative Solutions for Thermal Applications
Extreme exposure to corrosive or oxidative environments is a major challenge for auxiliary equipment or equipment components. Thanks to their outstanding material-specific property profile, components made of Oxide Fiber Composites (OFC) have enormous potential for just such applications.
Our Durafox® ceramics have high damage tolerance and thermal shock resistance and, depending on the material variant, are designed for temperatures of up to 1,200 °C in continuous use. Another major advantage is the application-specific material and production selection. For example, tubes and grids can be produced in winding technology, plates in laying technology and channels, crucibles and boxes as molded components. Unlike graphite and CFRC, Durafox® does not oxidize, which allows it to be used under oxidizing conditions.
Our OFCs are virtually predestined for many areas of application. For example, they can be used in high-temperature applications under air, in inert or reduced atmospheres as carburization protection for CFRC racks or under oxidizing conditions as all-oxide fixtures for heat treatment, as protective layers in sintering processes under reducing atmospheres, in sintering boxes for powder treatment and in nozzle technology in the aerospace industry. Our Durafox® OFCs are also used as burner nozzles in furnace building and for charging and transporting liquid aluminum alloys in the foundry industry.
