Thermax® application

High Temperature Insulation

High temperature processes require high performance insulation materials to minimize energy loss and maintain ambient plant temperatures acceptable for personnel and equipment. Thermax® carbon black effectively addresses conductive, convective and radiative heat loss from furnaces and reactors at temperatures up to 3,000 ºC.

Thermax® Grade



Thermax® N990 consists of uniform soft pellets which are easy to disperse in most applications, yet can withstand the rigours of transportation.

Specification Sheet



Thermax® N991 powder is a non-pelletized product designed for use in low shear force mixing systems.

Announcement on Cancarb Power Plant Operations

The Cancarb Power Plant is currently offline for a scheduled maintenance. As a result, waste heat is being exhausted through the bypass stack to atmosphere.

The maintenance work is expected to be completed by Saturday, January 14 with operations resuming Sunday, January 15 at which time the bypass stack will be closed and the waste heat directed to steam generation.
