Features and Benefits
Customers have reported substantially improved operating efficiencies after replacing cordierite kiln furniture with LO-MASS® advanced silicon carbide kiln furniture systems, including N-Durance® support posts and setter plates as well as Silit® SK support and stringer beams.
These systems offer several key benefits, including:
- Improved sustainability
- Lower refractory mass
- Reduced energy consumption
- Improved structural stability
- Enhanced safety
- Improved fired product quality
- Faster ROI
LO-MASS® XXL plates are offered in a maximum size of 1,250x900x10 mm.
This increased setting space offers many advantages, including:
- Further reduction of structural supports and kiln furniture
- Elimination of joints and seams underneath the product
- Flatness retention over a large setting area
What are the advantages of LO-MASS® kiln furniture for DPF/GPF filter and substrate manufacturing?
The exceptional properties of LO-MASS® components and systems make them an ideal choice for the firing of automotive diesel and gasoline particulate filters (DPF/GPF) and substrates.
LO-MASS® components offer exceptional benefits. The production of thin, lightweight plates and profiles provides more efficient utilization of the kiln and lowers overall operational costs. LO-MASS® components’ excellent mechanical strength at high temperatures maximizes the number of filters per plate, resulting in more product being fired and less kiln furniture.
LO-MASS® components increase productivity for DPF/GPF filter and substrate manufacturing while reducing energy consumption. In addition to offering increased strength and output, LO-MASS® components help improve vital sustainability efforts. Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories is the industry leader in the development of silicon carbide materials with exceptional high-temperature oxidation resistance.
Kiln furniture assemblies for use in the manufacture of DPF/GPF filters and substrates consist mainly of Advancer®, N-Durance® and Hexoloy® advanced silicon carbide. These products offer excellent performance and compatibility with the fired product. Leveraging the power of the proprietary KilnWorks® customized software, Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories‘ engineers can design and develop customized kiln furniture for any application.
LO-MASS® kiln furniture and LO-MASS® silicon carbide components and assemblies are the clear choices versus traditional materials.
