Ceramic fiber products have made great progress in China over the past decade. Tuo Lin has done professional research in the industry, and we found that ceramic fiber products appeared as early as 1941. Today, we, Tianjin Tuolin, will be an industry science popularization for everyone. From a global perspective, what is the milestone of ceramic fiber development? What has happened in China so far? Let's look down together.
From 1941 to 1990, ceramic fiber developed by leaps and bounds
The ceramic fiber first appeared in 1941. The American Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises, Inc. (BW) used natural kaolin and melted it into fibers through an electric arc furnace.
In the late 1940s, two companies in the United States produced aluminum silicate series fibers, which were first used in the aviation industry.
In the 1960s, the United States developed a variety of ceramic fiber products and used them for industrial kiln wall lining.
In the 1970s, ceramic fibers were produced and used in China. Its application technology was rapidly promoted in the 1980s, but the main use temperature range was below 1000°C, and the application technology was relatively simple and backward.
Since the 1990s, ceramic fibers have been widely used in China
After entering the 1980s, many Chinese companies have imported production lines and vacuum forming technologies from the United States with various fiber-forming methods at very high prices. Since then, ceramic fiber production technology and production scale in China have made tremendous progress. Since 1986, major Chinese companies have designed and built different types of resistance method spinning production lines based on the digestion and understanding of imported ceramic fiber production equipment and production processes, combined with local conditions.
With the rapid development of steel production in the Chinese market, the production of ceramic fibers has increased by more than 30% at a rate of 50% per year.
The main forms of ceramic fiber products are: ceramic fiber cotton, felt, blanket, module, paper, ceramic fiber cloth, ceramic fiber tape, ceramic fiber rope, etc. Ceramic fiber is an excellent refractory material. It has the characteristics of light weight, high temperature resistance, small heat capacity, good thermal insulation performance, good high temperature thermal insulation performance, and no toxicity. High-quality ceramic fiber cloth is a fibrous light-weight refractory material, with light weight, high temperature resistance, good thermal stability, low thermal conductivity, low specific heat and resistance to mechanical vibration and other highlights. Therefore, ceramic fiber cloth has been widely used in machinery, metallurgy, chemical industry, petroleum, ceramics, glass, electronics and other industries. In addition, ceramic fiber cloth can be applied to fire doors, industrial kiln insulation, high temperature pipes and containers. We, Tianjin Tuolin Technology Co., Ltd. are specialized in producing ceramic fiber cloth. If you are interested in this, welcome to consult us.
