High Performance Thermal Insulation WDS®
WDS® differs from conventional thermal insulation with complete control of heat transfer including solid heat transmission, air molecule motion and infrared transmission,
achieving a better low thermal conductivity than still air.
Demonstrating better thermal insulation performance than other thermal insulation, it contributes to creating of smaller, lighter energy-saving devices.
Heat transition characteristics
- 1. Solid heat transition
WDS® molded fumed silica (5 to 30nm/ball)
- ・Low inherent thermal conductivity
- ・Small heat transition pathway due to point contact of granules
- 2. Gaseous heat transition
Air molecule motion restricted by enclosure in 100nm or smaller micro pores
- ・Molecular impact prevented by heat transition restriction
- 3. Infrared radiation
- Restriction of heat transition by infrared through adding infrared absorbent material
Thermal conductivity for WDS® and other kinds of thermal insulation
(Stainless Steel cover)
|Linear shrinkage||(%)||<0.3(at 950℃x4h)|
|Compressive Strength||(MPa)||0.4(at 10% thickness displacement at RT)|
Contact with fluid has a significant negative impact on performance.
Covering it can reduce the impact of fluids.
