Sustainable, Adaptable Refractory Solutions for the Automotive Industry
Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories produces an extensive range of sustainable, adaptable refractory solutions for the automotive industry, including a range of diesel particulate filters that ensure cleaner engine exhaust gases and help preserve air quality.
Advanced silicon carbide materials offer excellent shape stability, thermal conductivity, thermal shock resistance, defined flatness and surface finish – features that make this material an ideal solution for the automotive market.
What are the advantages of employing LO-MASS® kiln furniture in DPF, filter and substrate manufacturing?
Employing LO-MASS® components in the firing of diesel particulate filters (DPF) and automotive substrates can significantly reduce costs. LO-MASS® components increase productivity for DPF, filters and substrate manufacturing while reducing energy consumption; while the production of thin, lightweight plates and profiles provides more efficient utilization of the furnace and maximum cost benefit per kiln unit.
Its high mechanical strength at high temperature allows a high load of filters per plate, as well as the potential to design an energy saving system.
In addition to offering increased strength and output, LO-MASS® components provide the sustainability every company strives for. Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories is the industry leader in the development of silicon carbide materials, which are resistant to oxidation at higher temperatures.
Kiln furniture for use in the manufacture of DPF, filters and substrates is primarily based on Advancer®, N-Durance® or Hexoloy® materials. These products offer excellent performance and chemical resistance to the fired product.
Leveraging the power of the proprietary KilnWorks® custom analysis software, Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories’ engineers can design and develop kiln furniture ideal for the customer’s specific application.
When given a choice between traditional or LO-MASS® kiln furniture, LO-MASS® silicon carbide components are the obvious choice.
