Kalb Corporation's HeatBlocker product has applications in many industries. This page is dedicated to the Waste Industry
The solid waste industry is constantly challenged by engine fires that injure personnel, destroys expensive equipment, and creates costly downtime. Kalb Corporation designs and manufactures HeatBlocker Exhaust Insulation systems, which are designed to reduce the likelihood of debris catching fire on diesel and compressed natural gas-powered refuse collection trucks and landfill machines. Each HeatBlocker system is designed for a “glove” fit that covers all “hot spots” that would support combustion of material that may encounter the hot piping.
Insulating the hot engine piping will also eliminate the radiated engine heat that makes the operator's cabin unbearable, due to excess temperatures.
