Introduction of Fire Clay Insulation Bricks
Fire clay insulation bricks, also known as lightweight fire clay bricks or refractory insulation bricks. They are a type of refractory material used for high-temperature insulation applications. These refractory bricks are made from a blend of high-quality fire clay, grog and other additives to enhance their insulating properties.
Insulated clay bricks have excellent thermal insulation properties, low thermal conductivity and high heat resistance. We designed them to withstand temperatures up to 1400℃ (2552℉) and provide insulation in various industrial settings where high temperatures are involved.
Overall, these wonderful fire clay insulation bricks provide efficient thermal insulation. So they can help conserve energy and contribute to the safe and effective operation of high-temperature industrial processes.

Properties of Fire Clay Insulation Bricks
The clay insulation bricks have excellent thermal insulation properties and can effectively reduce heat conduction and energy loss. Its low thermal conductivity helps maintain a stable temperature environment and reduce the thermal and cold bridge effect. Therefore, the use of clay insulation bricks can improve energy efficiency. We can effectively controll temperature differences using clay insulating bricks in industrial kilns and building structures. This not only maintains the stability of the kiln structure, but also creates a comfortable working and living environment.
The low density makes clay insulation bricks relatively lightweight, making them easy to handle and install. Construction workers can more easily carry and install these bricks, saving construction time and labor costs. Moreover, clay insulation bricks can reduce the structural load of the kiln and the self-weight of the building, thereby reducing production and construction costs. So this is especially important for large industrial kilns and high-rise buildings. In addition, the low-density structure also helps reduce heat conduction and provides better thermal insulation.
Like lightweight bricks, light weight clay bricks with good thermal shock stability can maintain structural integrity under rapid temperature changes. Therefore, the widely uses of these high-performance clay insulation bricks in metallurgy, chemical industry, glass and other high-temperature industrial fields. The most important thing is that clay insulation bricks can withstand thermal shock caused by temperature changes during equipment operation or production processes. Therefore, the application of clay insulation bricks can ensure the reliability and durability of industrial equipment.
In high-temperature working environments, traditional materials are easily corroded and damaged by high temperatures. Clay insulation bricks can withstand impact and corrosion at high temperatures. Therefore, the frequency of repairs and replacements is reduced and the maintenance cost of the equipment is reduced. In addition, clay insulation bricks can resist thermal stress, thermal expansion and chemical attack caused by high temperatures. In other words, refractory China can maintain the structural integrity and stable performance of industrial equipment.
Kerui clay insulation bricks have good chemical resistance and can resist the corrosion and erosion of some chemical substances. This makes them widely used in the chemical and petroleum industries. For example, the uses of it as insulation layer for equipment such as storage tanks, reactors and pipelines. Therefore, the corrosion resistance of clay insulation bricks ensures the long-term stable operation of equipment in harsh environments. Therefore, its application can extend the service life of industrial equipment and reduce production costs.

Production Process of Fire Clay Insulation Bricks
The first step is to gather and prepare the raw materials required for the production of fire clay insulation bricks. The main ingredients include fire clay, grog (crushed fire bricks), sawdust or other organic materials (as a pore-forming agent) and water. What’s more, these materials are carefully selected and measured according to the desired composition.
We then mix the raw materials together in a mixing machine or pug mill. The purpose of mixing is to achieve a uniform distribution of the ingredients and to ensure the proper bonding and workability of the clay mixture. Besides, adding water gradually during the mixing process to achieve the desired consistency.
We then shaped the mixed clay into bricks using scientific methods. Kerui production workshop has 12 sets of 400T CNC presses machines and 2 thousand-ton hydraulic presses. These presses are powerful and therefore form with high precision. Then, we use these presses machines to press the clay mixture into molds. In addition, we will also conduct a second measurement and weighing to ensure the quality of the high temp fire brick embryos.
After shaping, the bricks allows to dry in a drying chamber. This step is important to remove moisture from the bricks and to prevent cracking or deformation during the subsequent firing process. So we use our own two 168-meter high-temperature natural gas tunnel kilns to dry the bricks. What’s more, our CNC table can automatically adjust the temperature to reduce temperature fluctuations in the workshop.
The dried bricks are then fired in a kiln at high temperatures. The firing temperature may vary depending on the desired properties of the insulation bricks. Typically, the sintering temperature ranges from 900 to 1200℃(2192℉). The sintering process involves gradually increasing the temperature to the desired level and maintaining it for a specific time. The clay particles are then sintered and bonded. So the process is to transform raw materials into strong, durable and insulating bricks.
TAfter the sintering process, the kiln is gradually cooled down. Once the bricks have cooled, they are inspected for quality control purposes. Such as check the dimensional accuracy, strength, porosity and other relevant properties of insulated fire clay bricks to ensure they meet the required specifications.
Finally, the fire clay insulation bricks are packaged and prepared for storage or transportation. They are typically stacked and packed in pallets or crates to protect them from damage during handling and storage.
