Industries Served

Dyson Technical Ceramics manufactures products that serve the following industries:

  • Zirconia CruciblesCrucible Backing Material

    Zirconia Crucibles

    Dyson Technical Ceramics™ manufactures a wide range of high performance pressed Zirconia Crucibles, based upon partially stabilised Zirconia. Zirconia Crucibles are often used in the precious metals, aerospace and biomedical industries.  Applications include the investment casting of Nickel, Cobalt and Chrome containing alloys, along with high temperature melting and refining of Platinum Group Metals (PGMs’).


  • Tundish Metering NozzlesTundish Metering Nozzles

    Tundish Metering Nozzles

    Dyson Technical Ceramics manufactures a comprehensive range of high performance Zirconia Tundish Metering Nozzles used mainly in the continuous casting of steel billets. Tundish Nozzles usually comprise a zirconia inner nozzle (often referred to as a “zirconia insert”) with a lower grade outer body such as Alumina, Zircon or Bauxite.

  • Sliding Gate plate InsertsZirconia Sliding Gate Plate Insert

    Sliding Gate Plate Inserts

    Dyson Technical Ceramics manufactures a range of high density zirconia sliding gate plate inserts, which are used within sliding gate plate applications. The inserts are generally used within a cast or pressed refractory plate.

    Sliding Gate Plate inserts are an excellent solution to increasing the life span of sliding gate plates. Once a sliding gate plate becomes worn,
    the worn material can be removed and a high density DysonTC Zirconia Plate insert can be cemented/cast in its place, therefore extending the life of the sliding gate plate.

  • Foundry Ladle NozzlesFoundry Ladle Nozzles

    Foundry Ladle Nozzles

    Dyson Technical Ceramics™ Foundry Ladle Nozzles are available in a range of Alumina grade material qualities to suit casting requirements.  Our nozzles are made from high purity raw materials to promote higher erosion resistance to metals and alloys.

    A combination of excellent cosmetic appearance and dimensional accuracy promotes stable casting conditions. All our nozzles are available in a wide variety of bore sizes and are widely used in bottom pour ladle applications, where flow control is of paramount importance. Our efficient manufacturing techniques enable our clients to get the products they need, when they are needed.

  • Zirconia Atomising NozzlesAtomising Nozzles

    Atomising Nozzles

    Dyson Technical Ceramics are principle manufacturers of high performance Zirconia Atomising Nozzles for use in the Powder Metallurgy industry. Atomising nozzles are available in a wide range of shapes and sizes, many to the requirements of individual customers.

    Applications include the casting and atomisation of Ferrous and Non Ferrous melts.

    One of the principle features of Zircatom™ nozzles is their close dimensional accuracy, which promotes stable flow characteristics under the most arduous conditions. The addition of specially selected stabilising oxides provides high strength, excellent erosion resistance and minimal cracking due to thermal shock/rapid cooling.
