Filament Supports

Morgan Technical Ceramics is pleased to offer new standard filament supports, a critical component in mass spectrometry applications for the analytical and medical industries.

These filament supports are manufactured using our Sintox FF material (96% alumina), selected for its good electrical insulation and high temperature stability. Customers can choose between two and four-pin options, with the pins brazed into the alumina insulator ready for filament welding. Morgan’s brazing process makes the filament considerably more resistant to higher temperatures, around 700°C compared with standard adhesives, which can only typically withstand up to 350°C.

Many years of manufacturing experience with ceramic-to-metal assemblies means we can work closely with customers to tailor designs to their requirements or produce constant runs of standard designs ensuring quick turnaround and delivery.
