Medical Ceramic Products and Materials for Healthcare
Ceramic Medical products
Our high quality medical ceramics are favoured by healthcare device manufacturers and the medical professions for their exceptional physical characteristics. Our medical engineering expertise means we can make optimised healthcare products such as:
Biocompatible feedthroughs, Braze alloys (available from our Braze Alloys business), Multi-Pin Headers
X-ray tube components, Braze alloys (available from our Braze Alloys business), Metallised assemblies, High pressure feedthroughs
Surgical tools, Ablation tips, Robotic end effectors
High reflectivity laser cavities and connectors
Our materials provide a barrier to organic growth and resistance to harsh reagents and cleaning chemicals used in these instruments, making them an excellent choice for haematology applications. Key material properties for Healthcare include:
- Wear and chemical resistance
- Electrical insulation
Our precision-engineered tips are being used in a new treatment to ablate tumours. The minimally invasive procedure means that patient trauma following surgery is reduced and post-operation recovery times are significantly shorter.
Healthcare Products Capabilities
Our capabilities in thin film electroding, photolithography, precision dicing and composites make us the ideal ceramic medical sub-assembly supplier.Technical Ceramics
How are ceramics used in medical devices?
As a key component for many electrically and thermally demanding environments, high-voltage power tubes need to deliver both electrical insulation properties and a dielectric strength great enough to withstand intense electric fields
Why are Morgan ceramics particularly suitable for high voltage medical applications?
Electrical resistivity increases with material purity, which means a conventional alumina of 94 per cent purity will deliver a decreased dielectric strength (of 8.6 kV) compared with market-leading alternatives like Morgan’s Alumina AL300™, which achieves purities of 97 per cent - guaranteeing that much sought-after, higher dielectric value of 15 kV/mm in AC
What are the benefits of ceramics in medical power tubes?
For high-voltage applications, the key benefits to specifying power tubes which have been manufactured using high-purity alumina to deliver a guaranteed dielectric strength of 15kV/mm in AC can be summarised in three points, smaller components, optimised performance and increased lifespan
