Jointless® Insulation

Nutec Bickley’s reputation as a world leader in insulation systems is well deserved. Our patented ceramic fiber Jointless™ modules (US Patent 6,422,862 B1) for temperatures up to 1,350ºC (2,460°F) provides for minimal maintenance, enhanced fuel economy and extended service life.

Our Jointless system consists of monolithic ceramic fiber modules engineered to cover a complete kiln/furnace wall, door, or roof. It’s a one-piece construction continuously shaped with ceramic fiber blanket folded and anchored. Our Jointless modules not only eliminate the joints between smaller modules (as commonly found in ceramic fiber linings), but also eliminate the gaps typically located around the flues which require higher maintenance.

Floating Anchoring System

For higher temperature applications, our high alumina bubble brick insulation, using Nutec Bickley’s proprietary tongue and groove brick design, greatly extends the life of the refractory linings. This system allows the refractory to expand and contract parallel to the kiln walls, while refractory alloy anchor hooks and dense alumina anchor bricks restrict movement of brick away from the kiln shell. Nutec Bickley’s floating anchor brick retaining system has proven to be an excellent solution for high temperature applications.
