Textile products (industrial)
In our own production facility in Temse (Belgium) we produce high temperature textile products. This includes a wide range of custom-made insulation and sealing materials. Different types of raw materials are being used (glass fibres, low-bio persistent, silica, ceramic fibres, etc.) to be able to supply our customers with a complete range of products.
Worldwide our high temperature textile products (E-Glass, Vitrolux, HT-Glass, Ecomab®, Ecosil and Keramab®) are applied as door seals in boilers, ovens and reformers, seals between filter elements, seals for continuous casting, insulation of gas and steam turbines, kiln car seals, etc. All these products are manufactured on Keramab's highly advanced installation which is one of the largest of its kind in Europe.
How are textile products made?
The main types of the textile influence the production process. In general, you can make yarns from bulk fibres creating fibre ropes. Such products can be identified as:
Twisted ropes can be produced by twisting yarns together.
Braids are made by interlacing three of more yarns together (sleeves, wide fabrics or flat tapes)
Webbings and mesh are categorized as a pattern which looks like a net.
For the non-ceramic materials we supply Keramab®, Ecomab® and Isofrax®.
Braided and knitted packings
Fabrics and tapes
Fibre ropes and joints
Golden Super Rope
GPE impregnated gastight textiles
Ultimate Ring Seals (Endless Textile Rings)
Depending on the needs the textile insulation can be edited to your liking. For example, braided packings can be supplied in round, square or rectangular sections. Some variations can be impregnated with PTFE, graphite or other special products. The material can be shaped into different settings due to the flexibility of textile. Thereafter, it can be combined with messing to strengthen the material.
