    These materials, designed to withstand high temperatures and extreme conditions, are essential in energy applications.

    In power generation, whether through conventional thermal power plants, biomass plants or incinerators, high temperature processes are required. Refractory linings protect structures and equipment, such as boilers and furnaces, from these extreme temperatures, ensuring they operate efficiently and safely. They minimise wear and tear and extend the service life of this expensive equipment.

    In addition, power generation processes often involve sudden changes in temperature, and refractory materials must be able to withstand these changes without cracking or crumbling. They also protect equipment walls from corrosive attack by gases and ash produced during combustion.

    The thermal insulation provided by refractories is another key aspect. By keeping heat inside the equipment, they reduce energy loss and increase the overall efficiency of the power generation process. This efficiency is vital, as any heat loss represents a loss of energy that could have been converted into electricity.

    In the context of nuclear power, refractories also play a role in protecting structures and equipment from the heat generated during nuclear reactions.
