Zirconia Ceramics - Features and Manufacturing Process of Advanced ZrO2 Valve Trim Components with Mg-PSZ

Where severe conditions exist, valve components made from Morgan Advanced Materials Melbourne Mg-PSZ provide longer life and more consistent performance than conventional materials.

Morgan Advanced Materials Melbourne Mg-PSZ valve trim:

  • Enhances the performance of ball valves, rotary valves, needle valves, butterfly valves, gates etc. in the toughest most severe environments.
  • Works in conditions where other materials simply cannot.
  • Saves substantially on valve repair and downtime.
  • Is custom manufactured to your specifications.
  • Is USDA approved for food contact.

Benefits of Mg-PSZ Valve Trim Components

Valve components made from Morgan Advanced Materials’s Mg-PSZ consistently outperform steels, alloys, carbides, cobalt and nickel alloys and other ceramics, in a wide range of severe service conditions. Boiler feed, abrasive slurries, fly ash, corrosive chemicals, and sand abrasion are only a few of the many conditions where Morgan Advanced Materials’s Mg-PSZ has solved serious problems, while also providing significant cost savings from reduced maintenance, less frequent valve repairs, less downtime and improved performance over the life of the valve.

Challenges With Valve Trim Components

Valve components fail due to inherent weaknesses in the materials from which they are made. It is the design engineer’s job to weigh the trade-offs and come up with the best valve for the conditions. That usually means sacrificing in some areas to achieve improvement in others. The result is a compromise between valve performance and valve life.

Now you may never have to compromise again. The reason is Morgan Advanced Materials’s Mg-PSZ, the patented, transformation-toughened, partially-stabilized zirconia (PSZ) ceramic. It is completely different from anything you’ve tried.

Features of Mg-PSZ Valve Trim Components

Morgan Advanced Materials’s Mg-PSZ is a strong, tough, resilient ceramic that can stand up to the toughest of conditions. It is impact resistant - no need to handle it with kid gloves. It is extremely corrosion-resistant… in fact, it is virtually inert to most acids, bases and most other corrosives. It is wear resistant - abrasive slurries have little effect on its rock-hard surfaces. It is highly resistant to cavitation, and high operating temperatures are not a problem. After all, the melting point of Mg-PSZ is almost 2800°C!

Now you can have valves that will perform in virtually any condition with no more compromises. Throttling in abrasive slurries. High temperature corrosives. Cavitation. Morgan Advanced Materials’s Mg-PSZ will stand up to the most severe conditions you can imagine and provide long life and outstanding performance.

Custom-Manufactured Mg-PSZ Valve Trim Components

Morgan Advanced Materials’s Mg-PSZ valve components are custom-manufactured to your specifications. Morgan Advanced Materials’s ability to produce large and complex components is unequalled. We will provide engineering assistance to help you develop cost effective components.
