All,

I need some advice ASAP

Long story short.. I bought fiber board that seemed comparable to FB Board from Forno Bravo. When I went to pick up the board the supplier had limited supply and I unknowingly got board from 2 different manufacturers. Before I did the soldier course I had run some basic numbers and thought it seemed fine.

Now I know the actual boards I was sold:

*Board 1 (large board): Kaowool-M - Item # Kaowool M, Kaowool Low-Temperature Boards (2300F - 2400F Insulation & Structural Boards) On Foundry Service & Supplies, Inc.

*Boards 2 and 3: NuTec Fibratec - Nutec Fibratec

The first board has 20-40 psi compression strength and that seems a bit soft.

Looking at the FB Board the compression strength is 0.5 MPa which would be over 70 PSI (right?)

This full-size oven is gonna be hefty. Sagging into the board would be a disaster.

Let me know what you think.

Lets say your oven dome and floor weighs 3000#s complete (It won't). At 36" diameter with a wall thickness of 4", you have a bearing surface of 452 SqIn, giving you a compressive strength of 6.63 PSI on the bearing area.

Unless it is a mobile oven exposed to live loads, you have nothing to worry about.

Thanks Tscarborough

The oven is 41 internal but that doesn't change the PSI much. Still in the same ballpark.

Numbers are one thing... but feeling the softness of the board had me a bit freaked out

Merk, follow your gut. If you got this from Tom in Fenton, take it back and tell him you want the stiffer insulation board, so it is all the same material. Peace of mind does wonders in the long run.

Build is looking great. I'm excited to see another local in midst of a build. I'm just starting into pre-production and have already obtained some good info from your thread (material supplier, etc.). Carry on!

I've been consumed by St. Louis Blues hockey... but no more So now I expect my oven progress to speed up.

I built a form for the arch out of sandwiched plywood. All screwed together so that I can easily (hopefully) disassemble the form. There is also double cardboard spacers around the wood.

As of Saturday I have done 1.5 courses above the soldiers. Yesterday was stormy (and the Blues were on) so I didn't do any work.
