Cryston® Max Immersion Tubes

Immersion Tubes

Cryston® Max specially developed oxynitride bonded silicon carbide (SiC) delivers superior thermal performance for arches in immersion burner furnaces, zinc oxide (ZnO) muffle furnaces and more.

This highly oxidation resistant material allows for sustained thermal output throughout the lifetime of the product, stabilizing production processes and improving fuel efficiency.

How should Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories’ immersion tubes be preheated?

Careful preheating is important to avoid unnecessary thermal stress and possible failure. Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories’ experienced engineering teams are on hand to provide advice and support around specific furnace requirements.

What are the benefits of using ceramic radiant tubes?

Ceramic radiant tubes offer twice the heat output versus metallic tubes. This key advantage results in more efficient heating, less aggressive firing rates, lower operational costs and reduced furnace maintenance.
