Enhanced glass quality and plant safety with insulation from Promat

Enhanced glass quality and plant safety with insulation from Promat

The reduced weight and limited size of our solutions for secondary linings dramatically enhance the insulation performance in a compact space. As a result, the glass melting process will be more efficient and temperature control more accurate to enable the highest quality in your glass production.  The extremely low thermal conductivity of our materials guarantees lower casing temperatures, creating safer working conditions for your operators and other staff.

In order to develop the most efficient solution for your glass making facility, you can rely on our proven and comprehensive range of microporous materials, calcium silicate boards, high-temperature wools and lightweight refractory bricks. These materials have a long service life and are easy to install, maintain and repair.

Typical applications of our insulation solutions for the glass industry include melting tanks, regenerators, forehearths, feeder bowls, tin baths and annealing lehrs.
