Ceramic Sink Roll Bushes

Customers operating hot dip galvanising lines are faced with increasing challenges for resilient, wear resistant materials and solutions to cope with the greater demand for steel strip. Key to maintaining a stable and continuous product is the durability of the submerged sink roll bearings within hot dip galvanising line.

Morgan Technical Ceramics offers a range of Zirconia (Mg-PSZ) and Sintered Silicon Nitride (Si3N4) Sink Roll Bushes providing solutions to the demanding environment in terms of elevated temperatures, thermal shock resistance and mechanical stress.

Benefits of Nilcra® SSN E Ceramic Sink Roll Bushes

  • Downtime reduced: Ceramics outlast Stellite / Stainless Steel alloys by 3-5 times.
  • Improved strip quality: Reduced wear rate and lower friction reduce vibration of the strip over the life of the Sink Roll, thus improving both quality & control of the galvanised layer.
  • Increased productivity: Using ceramic allows an increased in line speeds, thus achieving greater production rates.

The use of Nilcra® SSN E rolls has been proven to improve the surface finish and consistency of the zinc coating. Manufacturers benefit from reduced down time, better process efficiency and higher yields.
