Morgan Thermal Ceramics Showcases Fire Protection Materials and High Temperature Insulation

AHR Expo 2013, Booth # 5219

Morgan Thermal Ceramics announces that it will be showcasing its FireMaster® FastWrap® XL and FireMaster® FastDoor material for HVAC and grease ducts, along with its Superwool® Plus material for boilers, water heaters and boiler flues, at AHR Expo 2013. The show will be held January 28-30, 2013, at the Dallas Convention Center, in Dallas, Texas, and Morgan Thermal Ceramics will be on Booth #5219.

FireMaster FastWrap XL is a flexible blanket composed of high temperature fibers classified for applications to 2192°F (1200°C) and is supplied fully encapsulated in durable glass fiber reinforced foil facing for easy handling and installation. FastWrap XL is UL (Underwriters Laboratories Inc.) classified and ULC (Underwriters Laboratories of Canada) listed in various systems for one and two hour fire resistive enclosure protection, reduced clearance for exhaust ducts, electrical circuit protection, and as a component in various UL firestop designs for fire resistance rated floors, ceilings, and walls.

The FireMaster FastDoor XL duct access system for grease ducts provides a safe and easy way to gain access to kitchen ducts for cleaning and inspection. It comprises a UL1978-tested and listed duct access door and an ASTM E2336-tested and listed enclosure cover plate. FireMaster FastWrap and FireMaster FastDoor XL are used in a newly certified, space-saving UL-listed installation method for grease duct enclosures used in commercial construction.

"By using compression joints rather than overlap joints, this new UL-listed installation method results in space, labor, and material savings," said Clay Booth, Morgan Thermal Ceramics' Fire Protection Market & Sales Manager. "The space savings are estimated at 33% compared to existing methods, offering real benefits to commercial construction projects."

Also on display is Superwool® Plus material for boilers, water and pool heaters, and chimney and boiler flues. Superwool Plus insulating fiber is up to 17% more energy efficient than traditional Refractory Ceramic Fiber (RCF) and any other low bio-persistent insulation. Superwool Plus enables users to increase manufacturing process efficiencies and make significant cost savings associated with energy usage.

A breakthrough in the company's advanced manufacturing control has allowed the product to be engineered to maximize the fiber content and as a result, it has significantly lower thermal conductivity and enhanced energy saving properties with much improved handleability.
Superwool Plus is a low biopersistent fiber with no workplace environmental control concerns. It meets the criteria for exoneration from classification and labeling regulation in Europe under Nota Q of Directive 67/548/EEC.
