Dyson Technical Ceramics manufactures and supplies the following products suitable for use in the Aerospace, Biomedical and automotive industries:
- Isostatically Pressed Crucibles
- Zirconia Ceramic Filters
Many of Dyson’s Zirconia Ceramic Materials can be used to produce special parts such as tubes/nozzles used in the Aerospace industry.
Dyson Technical Ceramics™ Isostatically Pressed Alumina Crucibles offer resistance to high temperatures, while maintaining good erosion resistance. Dyson Technical Ceramics manufactures a range of crucibles based on Alumina.
Dypack Backing Material
Complimenting Dyson’s range of crucibles Dyson Technical Ceramics also offer thermal insulating Dypack™ backing material, which can be used in air and induction melting applications. Also referred to as “Ramming Material” or “Crucible Back-up”, it creates a safety barrier in the unlikely event of a crucible failure. The crucible back-up also insulates the crucible, helping reduce changes in temperature that can cause thermal stress.
Zirconia Ceramic Filters
Dyson Technical Ceramics™ Zirconia Ceramics Filters are used in the filtration of Steel and Nickel/Cobalt based superalloy castings. DysonTC’s Zirconia Ceramic Filters offer resistance to high temperatures, while maintaining excellent erosion resistance. The fine textures of the filters provide excellent filtration properties, giving the caster cleaner melts and reducing the need for grinding/machining. Advanced production techniques help to give the filters an even 3D lattice, resulting in a smooth, non-turbulent melt flow.
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’).
