This company recently announced the launch of its improved range of stave-shaped ceramic components for the defense and commercial sonar sectors. Sonar systems used by many of the world’s navies contain ceramic materials that offer solutions where high acoustic transmission properties are required in low frequency environments. These new products are reportedly operable at extremely low depths, and continue to work even in the most severe bath thermal conditions, in which water temperature falls as water depth increases.

The ceramic stave components are available in a combination of lengths and widths, ranging from 10 to 165 mm, with thicknesses ranging from 10 to 40 mm. They can be manufactured to a specific range of angular specifications. allowing for large diameter assembled rings to be created. Larger or smaller sized staves outside these dimensions can also be produced.

Various additional geometries are available, with a choice of specially machined notch grooves to allow easier integration and soldering of connecting wiring and customized angle apertures to manufacture substantially larger diameter and lower frequency transducers.
