MORGAN THERMAL CERAMICS is producing fired refractory shapes, including pressed crucibles, tundishes, launders, and nozzles. Users will benefit from the manufacturers’ technology, which ensures consistency among products and continuous product improvement. Morgan’s engineering experts provide design consultation, engineered drawings and address product performance questions.

Among the products offered are Cerox®  fired refractory shapes and MRIpressed pre-fired refractory shapes, manufactured at facilities in Cañon City, CO, Augusta, GA, and Bromborough, England. The materials are available in a range of compositions, including many used specifically for manufacturing rotating and non-rotating airplane components and automotive turbochargers.

Cerox fired refractory shapes are dense, hard, and chemically stable, offering resistance to acids, slags, and gases. The Sillimanite Cerox 200 (74% alumina, fired mullite composition), Cerox 700 (high alumina, versatile shape capability), and Cerox 720 (high alumina, high strength, fine grain for thin-wall shapes), are ideal for metal producing. Combined with precisely controlled firing and 100% product inspection, these high-quality components are ideal for the most arduous of high-temperature environments.

MRI  pressed pre-fired refractory shapes, used in a variety of alloy melt-pour systems, meet tight tolerance specifications required by users. Precisely sized dies and detailed product inspection provide the user with a high-quality, dimensionally accurate refractory shape. A variety of compositions are available, including MRI 90V, a versatile 90% alumina mix commonly used for crucibles and furnace spouts in metal producing, and the MRI 95C, a 95% alumina, cement-bonded composition that offers a thermal shock resistant mix for tundishes, providing a superior surface finish and low-silica content.
