The innovative approach taken by Morgan Advanced Materials has led to the development of a novel solution to combat the issues created by the transportation of lithium-based batteries on civil aircraft. These batteries are subject to the problem of thermal runaway and a number of very serious incidents have occurred over the years, bringing them to the attention of international aviation authorities who have taken strong measures to increase the safety surrounding their transportation as cargo. However, these batteries are still carried by thousands of passengers and with their propensity to overheat, they pose a constant danger. A safe and reliable solution, tested in conjunction with a leading airline, has now been found, harnessing the very latest in materials technology from Morgan.
Morgan Advanced Materials has published a white paper identifying current trends in primary and secondary aluminium processing, focusing on technology solutions for the global aluminium processing sector.
The ongoing relationship between Morgan Advanced Materials and Gripple is proving highly successful in agricultural and industrial applications around the world. By including Morgan's renowned Sintox™ FA alumina ceramic in their range of steel wire joiners and tensioners designed for use in agriculture and construction, Gripple has distinguished itself from more mainstream competitors. So it is little wonder that this employee-owned business is going from strength to strength, and that Morgan has helped Gripple to deliver more than 20 million units per year to 86 countries.
Morgan Advanced Materials, a global specialist in the development and manufacture of seals and bearings for demanding environments, has delivered a new type of bearing for electric water pump applications in cars which reduces component count, while optimising performance and engine efficiency.
The packaging sector presents a variety of challenges for individual machine components depending on the application. Not only must production run without unscheduled interruption, placing reliability at a premium, but the correct speeds of operation for each individual aspect of the process must be maintained to ensure seamless and correct processing.
Morgan Advanced Materials, a global leader in advanced material technologies, has hosted its first ever partnership event in collaboration with the Armourers & Brasiers’ Company (A+B) in recognition of excellence within the field of materials science.

With global energy prices still somewhat volatile – and set to remain so – the ability to reduce energy costs and increase plant efficiency is of key importance to managers in many industrial sectors. However, it is particularly vital to petrochemical companies. Typical petrochemical operations, such as cracking, demand huge amounts of energy and very high temperatures which in turn has major implications in terms of cost, safety and equipment life cycles.
Fortunately, these issues can often be mitigated and, in many cases, financial and practical performance can be improved by the appropriate use of modern thermal insulation and designs.
The consumption of energy is of key importance to the metal casting industry, with most energy expenditure – 55 per cent - occurring during the melting process. However, until now it has been difficult to find data relating to energy use and crucibles, and so to assess the cost of crucible ownership in a way that includes energy savings. That situation has now changed, with a comparative study revealing that Morgan Advanced Materials' Salamander® silicon carbide (SiC) crucible performs particularly well in terms of energy consumption. Furthermore, changes made to the crucible in light of the study mean that the resultant energy-optimised Salamander® SiC may offer very considerable savings to foundries, through its increased energy transfer capability.
Morgan Advanced Materials has announced the launch of a new range of furnace products made from fully stabilised zirconia which offer extensive performance benefits in temperatures of up to 2,000ºC (3,632ºF) in a variety of industrial process applications.
