Oxide Bonded Silicon Carbide (OBSIC) Kiln Furniture
Silcarb manufactures a large quantity of Oxide Bonded Silicon Carbide Batts, Plates, Shelves, etc. The reason for using this material is due to their property of exceptional wear, corrosion resistance and has desirable refractory and chemical properties. They also have excellent resistance towards oxidation and thermal shock. These plates, batts, etc are far Superior to tradition cordite, mullite based ceramics in most applications. OBSIC is manufactured by combining oxide with silicon carbide using silica powder as the main raw material. The silicon carbide powders we use are of exceptional quality and high grade. Then it is processed by forming and drying it in shuttle fired kiln. The product formed has many beneficial properties like high-temperature volume stability, compact structure, and high-temperature flexural strength.
They have an initial cost-benefit as when compared to our nitride bonded silicon carbide products or recrystallized products. The batts, plates etc are usually manufactured by a high tonnage multi-axis Vibro hydraulic press. We manufacture our plates with the highest quality black silicon carbide with an in-depth understanding of the grain size distribution over the thermal and mechanical properties of the products we make. We use the lowest possible percentages of aluminosilicate binders, thereby increasing the hot modules rupture of the products we make. One of the major applications of OBSIC is in reduction of gas kilns. The OBSIC that Silcarb manufactures offers a considerable operating cost-benefit as when compared to cordites, mullites, etc. Other applications of oxide bonded silicon carbide kiln furniture include the automobile industry, chemical industry, magnetic materials industry, boiler industry, petroleum industry, etc.
