Kalb Corporation's Heatblocker product has applications in many industries. This page is dedicated to Mining
The mining industry utilizes Kalb Corporation’s HeatBlocker to greatly reduce engine fires and dust explosions by lowering exhaust system surface temperatures. When exhaust piping is covered with HeatBlocker, it also protects personnel from severe burns, lowers engine compartment temperatures that destroy wiring harnesses and rubber components.
Insulating the exhaust system, with HeatBlocker, allows the exhaust system to thermally expand, at an equal rate, eliminating hot and cold spots that crack and destroy exhaust components, due to unequal thermal expansion.
