Summary

For many years ceramic fiber linings in furnaces and kilns consisted of layers of blanket impaled over metal studs in walls and roofs of these units. Newly developed product forms and improved anchoring systems have allowed ceramic fiber linings to be used in areas previously avoided. High temperature applications and lining techniques are discussed along with other new applications such as kiln car linings.
