DTC Introduces Improved Dyslip™ Graphite Coating for Exchangeable Metering Nozzles

Dyson Technical Ceramics are pleased to make an announcement about the launch of a new graphite composite coating that will be applied to all zirconia metering nozzles used in exchangeable metering systems.

Generally, graphite coatings are applied to the sliding surfaces of metering nozzles in order to lubricate the ceramic surface and offer a smooth introduction of replacement nozzles in exchangeable metering systems. The graphite coating has extra benefits of developing a seal between the lower and upper nozzles, which helps in preventing the re-oxidation of steel during constant casting.

An optimum composite coating has been developed following an extensive laboratory development project in conjunction with the globally leading manufacturer of graphite lubricant coatings. The new coating system, called Dyslip™ has offered promising results in oxidation tests when compared with regular formulations used earlier by Dyson and the company’s competitors.

Dyslip™ will be employed at the company’s West Hunwick manufacturing facility on all exchangeable nozzles from July 2017.

This innovation will further enhance our standing as one of the world’s leading manufacturer of Zirconia metering nozzles. I would like to thank our laboratory development team and our graphite coating supplier for the excellent collaboration in developing this new coating system. I believe that our global customers will benefit from this innovation during their casting operations. We remain committed to working closely with our customers to serve their requirements and optimise casting performance.
