Morgan's Salamander SiC crucible a promising energy-saving solution
The consumption of energy is of key importance to the metal casting industry, with most energy expenditure, 55%, occurring during the melting process. However, until now it has been difficult to find data relating to energy use and crucibles and so to assess the cost of crucible ownership in a way that includes energy savings.
Method measures the zero flow offset property of transducers
Morgan Advanced Materials has for the first time developed a method to measure the zero flow offset property for a broad spectrum of transducers, optimising overall flow measurement accuracy in ultrasonic sensors. Morgan has made significant advances in minimising zero flow offset, to levels as low as 60ps.
Morgan Advanced Materials adds brazing of zirconia to services
Morgan Advanced Materials has enhanced its production capability to include brazing of zirconia in response to a growing market demand for zirconia products. In demanding applications, such as those within the petrochemical and industrial sectors, it is not uncommon for components to become damaged when subjected to sustained wear and corrosion, which can result in significant cost and disruption.
Digital modelling to enhance companies brazed assembly capability
Morgan Advanced Materials has announced that it now has the capability to carry out digital prototyping at its Technical Ceramics facilities, maximising its design capability and providing more rigorous evaluation during development projects, particularly for brazed assemblies.
AWEA recognises Morgan’s expertise
The expertise of Morgan Advanced Materials has been recognised once again, this time by the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), the national trade association for the US wind industry. The AWEA has accepted an abstract by Roland Roberge, Manager of Design and Application Engineering at Morgan's site in Greenville, SC.
Morgan brings industry-leading ceramics to HIFU transducers
Morgan Advanced Materials has announced that it now has the capability to design and manufacture components for use in High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) technologies, particularly in medical applications. Morgan is producing HIFU ultrasound transducers in a range of shapes and geometries, from 5 to 150mm in diameter and with frequencies between 200kHz and 8MHz.
