Abstract

This paper presents the outcome of a pilot study to utilize rigid silica aerogel as a safety enhancement measure to insulate hot glass in hearth appliances. The aerogel provides a high temperature effective insulation material to lower the temperature of outside surfaces of hearth appliances (fireplaces and stoves). The process to investigate this study is purely experimental. This paper presents the results of this pilot study in the form of temperature measurements across the exterior surface of hearth appliance that is gas-fired. The preliminary outcome presents some challenges related to high aerogel hygroscopy while presenting a potential for enhancing the safety of hearth appliances when it comes to be touched by children during operation.
