This year’s Ceramics Expo has been chosen for the launch of a brand new range of kiln furniture from Morgan Advanced Materials, suited to the production of catalytic converters and diesel particulate filters (DPFs).
The rapid four-week installation of an ultra-lightweight fire insulation blanket from Morgan Advanced Materials is providing extensive thermal protection for three separator vessels on the Statoil Mariner offshore platform.
Morgan’s FireMaster® vessel fire protection system is being used to maintain structural integrity of the separators against jet and hydrocarbon pool fires. Fire protection is crucial because these separators contain hydrocarbon inventory, which can become additional fuel to a fire in the event of structural failure. Thermal weakening and failure occur when the walls of the separator are heated by the exposing fire case. With increased temperature of the steel vessel shell, the applied stress on it increases, causing rupture. Morgan’s FireMaster® protection ensures that the steel shell temperature does not reach breaking point as temperatures surge.
The design fire scenario stated that the separators should be able to withstand fire loads of five minutes of jet fire at 350w/m2, followed by five minutes of jet fire at 250kw/m2, and an additional 50 minutes of hydrocarbon pool fire. Morgan’s FireMaster® solution was considered the most effective and easy-to-install option for the project, which had to be completed within the space of just one month.
Refractory engineers remain under constant pressure to increase the performance of furnaces, incinerators and reactors to maximise energy efficiency. Although there are many materials which can enhance the efficiency of furnaces, many still lose heat when in operation through flue gas, excess moisture in fuel, or continued opening of the furnace door. This is preventing many engineers from realising maximum energy efficiencies, causing businesses to focus their attention on reliable insulation and lining of furnaces from the floor to the stack, to contain as much heat as possible during operation. Companies such as Morgan Advanced Materials are responding to this challenge with a variety of lightweight, energy saving solutions with unique refractory designs which significantly minimise heat loss in these units. In this article, Steve Chernack from Morgan’s Thermal Ceramics business, outlines five top tips for achieving the best furnace lining efficiency.
When a global manufacturer of gas path components needed to increase production without compromising on product performance, little did it know it was about to form an industry partnership that would still be delivering benefits over 20 years later.
Following extensive research and development, Morgan Advanced Materials has successfully produced two new materials which offer superior performance and higher casting yields when used in injection-moulded ceramic cores for the aerospace market.
In a move to make the most of growing opportunities in India for electrical carbon, machined carbon/graphite and silicon carbide products in a range of industries, Morgan Advanced Materials, a world leader in materials science, has opened a new office in India.
Thermal insulation has long been a key element in the manufacture of cooking appliances, to deliver energy efficiency and safety to both commercial and domestic customers.
Fibreglass is the conventional material choice for thermal insulation in appliances such as ovens, range cookers and dual fuel cooking tops, but a shift change in favour of higher performance alternatives is now shaking up what has been, until recently, a relatively steady marketplace.
Richard Ellenberger, Engineering Services Manager at Morgan Advanced Materials, explores why high temperature Alkaline Earth Silicate (AES) fibres have become an integral specification choice for manufacturers looking to benefit from better performance, increased design flexibility and improved safety.
As design engineers increasingly seek out more efficient, higher performing pump components, Morgan Advanced Materials has improved its grinding capability of technical ceramics, in order to machine parts to single-digit micron tolerance.
