ZIRCAR Refractory Composites, Inc. produces a comprehensive line of advanced high performance ceramic-ceramic composite materials and related products. Our materials are used around the world in the most demanding thermal, structural and electrical insulating applications ranging in temperatures from 600C(1112F) to 1650C(3002F). For over twenty-five years, we have been a problem-solver working with our customers to resolve their thermal management problems. We have developed products that have become industry standards for induction melting, forging and heat treating applications, investment casting, glass processing, hot pressing, as well as many high temperature electrical applications.


Application Sheet


Application: Induction Coil Liners in Induction Melting Furnaces

Product: RS-101 Cylinders

Application Information: In this application, Refractory Sheet Type RS-101 Cylinders are used as: induction coil liners in induction melting furnaces where it offers virtually uninterrupted performance and is still reusable; as molten metal splash guards in induction furnaces where it prevents the possibility of electrical shock to the operator and protects the induction coil from being attacked by molten metal; as a direct replacement for Transite and other asbestos-cement type products; and a fireproof structural insulation.

Benefits: RS-101 cylinders retain strength far exceeding maximum use temperatures of reinforced plastics and asbestos-cement type products;

RS-101 cylinders withstand service temperatures to 1260C(2300F);

RS-101 cylinders are 100% inorganic, and are not easily wetted by non-ferrous alloy spills, are not absorbent and are resistant to most harsh environments.
