|MORGAN THERMAL CERAMICS SHOWCASES FIREMASTER® FASTDOOR™, FASTWRAP® XL AND SUPERWOOL® PLUS™ AT AHR EXPO 2012, BOOTH # 3669
Morgan Thermal Ceramics announces that it will be showcasing its FireMaster® FastDoor™ and FastWrap® XL material for HVAC and grease ducts, along with its Superwool® Plus™ material for boilers, water heaters and boiler flues, at the AHR Expo 2012. The show will be held January 23-25, 2012, at McCormick Place North and South, in Chicago, IL, and Morgan Thermal Ceramics will be at Booth #3669.
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 classified and ULC 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 is made up of 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% over the existing method, which is a real benefit in commercial construction projects.”
Also on display is Superwool® Plus™ material for boilers, water and pool heaters, and chimney and boiler flues. Superwool® Plus™ is up to 17% more energy efficient than traditional Refractory Ceramic Fiber (RCF) and any other Alkaline Earth Silicate (AES) insulations. 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.
