Summary

The use of ceramic fiber insulation in all types of heat-treating equipment and industrial furnaces is noted. Various installation methods are described, including fiber modules applied with mortar to existing firebrick surfaces. The benefits of the modules, which can be installed quickly and which provide a durable, energy-saving covering, are cited.
