Kalb Corporation designs and engineers custom-shaped and application-specific high temperature exhaust insulation covers for all manner of diesel and natural gas engine installations.  Using either field engineering or customer supplied files, Kalb’s design team creates an insulation system which accounts for OEM and field installation.  The flagship exhaust insulation cover, HeatBlocker, will provide a durable, long lasting thermal barrier on your exhaust components and will decrease the cold face temperature by up to 1000°F (538°C).  Once the design process is complete, the designs are uploaded to the CNC cutting table where the exterior fabric and insulating core are cut to provide consistent quality to the finished part.  The exterior shell with its protective EdgeGuard ™is then stitched together using high temperature Inconel thread.  The interior rigidized Inconel foil liner is completed in the same manner prior to the insulation cover being assembled with the non-carcinogenic insulating core.  All parts utilize a stainless steel spring and hook closure with a laser etched identification tag.  The stainless steel spring closure provides a constant tension closure to keep the HeatBlocker cover in place on the exhaust system without sagging or creeping.  The HeatBlocker Performance Exhaust Insulation cover will operate on a continuous basis at temperatures up to 1832°F (1000°C) and intermittently to temperatures of 2300°F (1260°C).  Typical installations provide protection for personnel, reduction of debris catching fire on the engine, an increase of engine component life, reduction of parasitic heat loads on the engine cooling system, and increased efficiency of the exhaust gas after treatment process.  The outer fabric and inner foil skins are resistant to all engine fluids such as diesel fuel, hydraulic fluid, and oil.

When you stand near a hot diesel exhaust system you immediately know how dangerous they can be to personnel and surrounding equipment. Remove this threat to your crews and engine components by contacting Kalb Corporation now.  Kalb Corporation is an ISO 9000:2001 certified company.
