kiln car solutions

Complete kiln car solutions
energy saving and efficient

Energy saving:

The kiln car constructions are designed in a way to minimise the mass and space needed for kiln furniture. Hereby, the mass which has to be heated-up is also minimised. This results in a direct saving of energy, whereas all other factors like quantity of products to be fired stay constant

Great experience:

Our business partners deliver since decades kiln furniture to the ceramic industry. Our partners have developed complete kiln car constructions which are at the leading edge of the industry. The philosophy to offer the best value to the customer is the link between our partners and Heide GmbH.

Individual customer demands:

The kiln car constructions are designed due to the individual customer demands and are adjusted to the specific kiln. Both, new and existing designs are realised - for one or a whole range of kiln cars.

Efficient use:

The constructions are easy to handle and very efficient to use. With this new system the space for your products increases. A change of the kiln furniture setting can be realised easy and fast.

Additives for ceramic bodies and glazes - manufactured by BYK

Under the brand names Laponite®Bentolite® and Optigel® a full range of easy-dispersible high quality smectite products is available. These products are used as rheological additives and mineral binders e.g. in the ceramic industry. The outstanding features compared to conventional bentonites are the following:

By selective mining of white, low iron bentonites for the production of Optigel® and Bentolite®, a colouring of the final product is reduced to a minimum. Degree of whiteness: up to 82.

Laponite®-grades are synthetic hectorite products with exactly controlled composition and free bound, oxide, or metallic iron. On firing, Laponite® will be converted to high brightness oxides and give less glaze defects than natural smectites.

Optigel® and Laponite® products provide stable suspending properties in aqueous systems, even during long storage times.

Refractory products

Whether repair or new construction - we have the ideal refractory products for you.

Repair material for ceramic fibres

Repair material for ceramic fibres 1.150 - 1.750 °C


GLI plastic ceramic fibre material is a homogene, plastic material ready to be applied. It consists of ceramic fibres and anorganic binders. The temperatures of application of the available products range between 1.150 and 1.750 °C. The material is getting solid already after drying in the air.

The drying process can be accelerated by using temperatures of 120 - 150 °C. The drying time differs depending on the thickness of the coating between
2 - 35 hours. The ceramic setting happens at appr. 1.000 °C.


The application can be made with spatula, scraper or injection on a clean underground, free from grease. The adhesion can be ameliorated by moistening with water or a prime coat. It is also possible to use it on metals by means of supporting elements. The consistency of the material can be adjusted by the addition of water.

GLI plastic materials are used:

  • to fill hollow spaces
  • to fill shrinkage cracks
  • sealing cracks in kiln linings and fibre isolations
  • back isolation in kilns and ractors
  • hot repair of back isolations
  • isolation of tube connections and other exposed areas


  • cost savings by efficient application
  • quick, save and dust free
  • working conditions
  • optimal filling of all joints
  • no damaging of the surface of the modules
  • only short time of interuption of production in case of

von Mantec Technical Ceramics Ltd.

To develop the optimum properties of a ceramic product, the control and uniform application of heat work is essential. Bullers Rings and Bullers Discs are used to check the balance and consistency of firing conditions, either as independent monitoring devices on increasingly "High-Tech" kilns, or as an indispensable control on "Low-Tech" kilns. Potential quality problems are identified early in the process and recorded so that the results can be monitored and actioned. Bullers Rings and Bullers Discs are simple to use, accurate, consistent and cost effective.

Like the products being fired, Bullers Rings and Bullers Discs react to the effects of time and temperature, the combined effects of which produce a shrinkage in the ring. This controlled contraction can be accurately measured on a simple gauge to determine the heat treatment to which it has been subjected, and which is shown by a single number.
Bullers Rings and Bullers Discs can be used in all types of kiln, continuous or intermittent, providing a reliable measure of cosistency of firing.

Bullers Rings cover the following temperature range: 750 - 1420 °C
Bullers Discs cover the following temperature range: 770 - 1770 °C

» The most perfect method to measure the influence of the temperature during firing ceramic products. «
