Feeder Bowl Kits

MICROTHERM® FBK are tailor made kits of microporous insulation for glass feeder bowls. The kits consist of different MICROTHERM® materials, specially chosen to allow fast assembly on-site. The dimensions are based entirely on customer specifi-cations. The formulation is an opacified blend of filament reinforced pyrogenic silica.

Typical applications
< #Back#
Microporous insulation offers an extremely low thermal conductivity, close to the lowest theoretically possible at high temperatures.

Microporous materials are the preferred choice when a large temperature reduction is required within a limited space, or when strict heat loss or surface temperature requirements are specified.
