Energy generation depends on power plants running efficiently. Those plants now have even higher expectations in terms of their components, protective linings to prevent large-scale heat transfer, good wear resistance, high chemical inertness etc.
Silicon carbide offers effective solutions where conventional grains wear out too rapidly at high temperatures. For burning line, ventilator housing and desulfurization nozzle applications, Saint-Gobain has developed a special line of products called High Grade (HG). SIKA REF I 98% HG products offer a high degree of purity, low magnetic material content, excellent CO resistance, superior density, good flowability and a wide range of grades, depending on market and customer requirements.
For boiler linings and ramming paste, silicon carbide SIKA REF I 98% NI can be used as it offers low magnetic material content and good density and flowability.
