Morgan Ceramics will be demonstrating its expertise in high temperature insulation and ceramic components for demanding refractory applications, on stand 200, Hall B6 at Ceramitec (22nd - 25th May 2012). Morgan Technical Ceramics will be launching a new thermocouple for reliable and accurate temperature measurement, while Morgan Thermal Ceramics will be displaying its energy efficient insulation products.
Visitors to the stand will be able to meet Morgan Ceramics' experts and learn how to increase the energy efficiencies of their ceramic and refractory insulation; leading to cost savings and reduction in carbon emissions Morgan Technical Ceramics' new alumina thermocouples give accurate temperature measurement at temperatures up to 1800 °C in furnaces and kilns. The reliable thermocouples are robust in harsh kiln environments and have a longer lifetime than alternatives in the marketplace, enabling users to make cost savings when replacing other materials.
With a higher purity, improved bulk density and higher strength, the material exceeds the expectations of alumina sheath tubes. Benchmarking analysis has shown that alumina thermocouples manufactured by Morgan Technical Ceramics provide exceptional performance based on chemical resistance and temperature stability.
Morgan Technical Ceramics will also be displaying its range of high performance rollers for kilns. Its fused silica rollers are inert and have high mechanical strength, high purity and good wear characteristics, which lead to a long life in a challenging high temperature environment. Morgan Thermal Ceramics' Superwool Plus fibre insulation blanket will be on display. Used in high temperature processing applications to line kilns and furnaces, it has been independently tested to have a thermal conductivity up to 40% lower than comparative insulations at 1000°C. As such, it is confirmed as being more energy efficient than alternative products, thus enabling users to make significant energy cost savings and reduce their carbon footprint.
This improved performance allows customers to 'drop a density'; when using a lighter Superwool Plus 96 kg/m3 blanket in place of a competitive 128 kg/m3 blanket, or a Superwool Plus 80 kg/m3 blanket in place of a competitive 96 kg/m3 blanket, users enjoy significant weight and cost savings while still achieving the same level of insulation.
Also on display will be the company's range of insulating firebricks (IFBs), which offer a unique combination of insulating properties with load bearing ability. The insulating firebricks are particularly suited to applications above 1000°C, where their thermal conductivity is as low as fibre based products (in some cases lower), but with structural integrity capable of dealing with erosive and abrasive environments.
Morgan Thermal Ceramics' JM23 IFBs give lower thermal conductivity than alternative grade 23 IFBs, which results in up to a 37% energy saving and significantly lower operating costs.
"At Morgan Ceramics we offer an unrivalled product range for ceramics manufacturing and our global presence enables customers worldwide to benefit from the highest levels of service and support," says Alwin Vogel, Sales Director, Morgan Ceramics, Germany. "Our high performance kiln furniture and market-leading energy-efficiency insulations enable users to operate reliably and economically."
