By pdamon24 May 2016
Lincoln Industries has launched ThermoLinc Elite, a multilayer composite insulation system targeted for exhaust gas applications up to 1800°F. ThermoLinc Elite is designed for both diesel and gas engine applications to maintain heat, reduce surface temperature, increase driver comfort, mitigate thermal and fire risks and reduce heat on surrounding components, Lincoln Industries said. The system’s thermosetting textile cover and insulation layers allow it to conform to complex part geometries and offers easy installation, the company said.
One application showed an insulated surface temperature below 300°F with an exhaust gas temperature of approximately 1700°F, Lincoln Industries said. According to the company, ThermoLinc Elite can be used in agriculture, Class 8 truck, motorsports, rail and other diesel and gas engine exhaust applications.
