Summary

High costs of energy and other cost pressures demand better insulation. Advanced insulation systems and more effective use of established systems combat high temperatures, reactive atmospheres, and mechanical stress. The selection process of materials and design are coordinated with the furnace conditions to hold down costs of fuel, labor, and maintenance.
