Ray Mouw, Business Development Manager at Morgan Advanced Materials’ Technical Ceramics business, explains why magnesia stabilised zirconia ceramic components will be vital for pumps that work in harsh environments, such as oil & gas, and crude oil extraction.
It goes without saying that crude oil is a valuable, or perhaps more accurately an invaluable product to all of us globally. The unrefined petroleum is pumped from reserves deep underground and by the barrel load, all day, every day.
Our dependence on this product (which is processed into a variety of fuel sources and commodities like jet fuel, petrol and diesel) has been quantified by a market intelligence report from Beroe.
Just like Wi-Fi (wireless internet), the origins of Partially Stabilised Zirconia (PSZ) is a commercial success story that was born from research carried out at Australia’s CSIRO. The original patent on PSZ technology dates back to 1978 (US Patent 4,067,745), awarded to researchers Garvie, Hannink and Pascoe.
Morgan Advanced Materials, world leaders in ceramic and carbon materials science and engineering, is descending on GIFA with a range of its innovative high-performance materials.
GIFA is one of the largest international exhibitions for foundry and metallurgy technology, taking place once every four years in Germany. This year, Morgan is exhibiting with three of its key global businesses, including its Molten Metal System, Thermal Ceramics, and Haldenwanger® teams. Each business will have a range of high-performance materials on show to help with linings for furnaces, kilns, crucibles and more.
Demand for turbine engine blades is increasing, and the investment casting industry is looking for more efficient manufacturing processes. The two key materials currently used – alumina and silica (quartz) – have advantages and drawbacks in terms of strengths and processing time. Eric Larson, Director of Technology and Process Improvement at the Technical Ceramics Business of Morgan Advanced Materials, explains how Morgan’s innovative new material LEMA™ combines the two’s best aspects to provide an effective solution for manufacturers.
The space industry is growing fast and is predicted to be worth over a trillion dollars by 2040. Keith Ferguson, Senior Business Development Manager at Morgan Advanced Materials’ Braze Alloys Business, explains how braze alloys play their part in safe, reliable and sustainable space exploration.
The saying goes “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”. This famous phrase, uttered by Neil Armstrong, is the perfect advertisement for space exploration and its importance to the future.
Less than a century old, space exploration has come on leaps and bounds since the first artificial satellite, Sputnik 1, was propelled into space in 1957. Since then, the world has witnessed marvels such as landing on the moon, the space shuttle programme of the 1970s, and the launch of the International Space Station.
Announced in 2016, the CoE spurred development of 30,000 square foot building at 310 Innovation Boulevard in Innovation Park at Penn State.
