Zirconia Ceramics Products
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.
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.

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’).
