Morgan Advanced Materials uses their advanced ceramic materials to make high performance valve components for abrasive and corrosive fluid flows in challenging processing environments. These include paper and pulp manufacturing, chemical processing, and oil and gas extraction and refining. The range includes options for butterfly valves, ball valves, and rotary and linear control valves.
Morgan Advanced Materials’ valve components are manufactured using Nilcra™ Zirconia, an advanced ceramic material that is sturdy, tough and extremely resistant to abrasive slurries and chemical reagents. It offers a reliable, high performance option where other materials mostly fail, even in the most demanding process applications, because it delivers exceptional resistance to cavitation, a major issue for process control valves.
Used for crucial duties in high value processing environments, Nilcra™ Zirconia valve components offer processors the potential for considerable savings in valve repair and downtime costs. Thus, processors and their equipment suppliers are increasingly seeking it for use in applications that use hard chemicals such as sour oil, bleached wood pulp, bitumen, bauxite (alumina), concentrated sodium hydroxide, line slurries, and sulfur dioxide (SO2).
