Morgan Thermal Ceramics announces extensive range of Mastics for maintenance and hot spot repair
Morgan Thermal Ceramicsannounces the availability of an extensive range ofpumpable mastics, ideal for maintenance and repair of hot spots in the power generation industry. Complementing a full line of fiber and refractory insulation products, the Masticsrange includes pumpablesandmoldables.
Hot spot repair pumpables are designed for injection filling of refractory joints and cracks, even whilstthe boilers are in operation. Rather than shutting down the furnace and idling it for days or weeks until the temperature cools, resulting in potentially costly downtime, pumpable wet fiber technology can be used to make repairs within hours. Designed for pumping into voids caused by deteriorated insulation, grouting cracks and gaps in refractory linings, these pumpable products are ideal for providing quick and easy re-insulation behind boiler tubes in sidewalls, seals and floors, as well as repairs of ovens, furnaces and process equipment.
The pumpable range includes products manufacturedfrom lowbio-persistent fibersand Refractory Ceramic Fiber materials, including Superwool® insulating fiber, Kaowool® fiber, Cease-Fire® 2000 insulating foam, and Therm O-Hot Patch™, all of which are quick and easy to install with HS-100 extrusion pumps or A0-25 caulking gun kits.
Morgan Thermal Ceramics' versatile moldable putties are excellent for patching refractory cracks, penetration seals, and metal stud protection. Ready-to-use for temperatures ranging from2000°F to 2400°F, these moldable products feature excellent strength and low fired shrinkage. They are available in low bio-persistent Superwool® fiber and also Kaowool® brands.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
