Fused Silica Furnace Rollers from Morgan Advanced Materials to Reduce Solar Cell Costs

Morgan Advanced Materials (MTC), a leading manufacturer of innovative ceramic, glass, precious metal, piezoelectric and dielectric materials, introduces materials that significantly improve the performance of ceramic rollers in furnaces used to make silicon wafers for solar panels. The performance improvements associated with the materials are expected to lower costs by driving down the processing costs for each wafer produced.

MTC's fused silica rollers provide a variety of benefits for thermal processing and chemical doping of silicon wafers and module glass. The rollers are inert, have high mechanical strength and good wear characteristics, leading to a long life in a challenging high temperature environment.

For high temperature applications in aggressive atmospheres, MTC has developed HalSolar alumina/silica rollers, which have improved chemical resistance, excellent thermal shock resistance and can be supplied with a smooth surface finish. Developed specifically for the solar market, the new rollers demonstrate MTC's commitment to providing application engineering support to this important emerging market segment.
