Fired Refractory Shapes

March 18, 2013
Dense, hard, chemically stable High alumina content Versatile shape capability

MORGAN THERMAL CERAMICS announced the availability of Cerox® fired refractory shapesin a range of material compositions, including many specifically used for the manufacture of rotating and non-rotating airplane components and automotive turbochargers.

Dense, hard, and chemically stable, Cerox fired refractory shapes offer resistance to chemical attack from acids, slags, and gases to produce the cleaner, contaminant-free metal desired by end users in aerospace and automotive steel foundries. They are manufactured at plants in Colorado and Georgia, where the supplier has centralized its product managers and engineers to ensure customer service.

Fired shapes manufactured from Sillimanite Cerox 200 are composed of 74% alumina and fired mullite, which are prized for their chemical attack resistance, good thermal shock, and excellent non-wetting characteristics at temperatures as high as 2,850°F.

Other materials available include Cerox 700, which has a high alumina content as well as versatile shape capability, making it recommended for products with complex shapes, including crucibles, tundishes and launder systems.

For complex shapes, Cerox 720, which also features a high-alumina content, is particularly adapted to developing shapes with thin walls, due to its fine grain and high strength.

Cerox shapes are fired to temperatures that create especially strong molecular bonds, making them superior in applications required to produce clean and contaminant-free metals. Combined with precisely controlled firing and 100% product inspection, these high-quality components are ideal for the most demanding of high-temperature environments.
