Since the acquisitions of Baehr and Expert System Solutions, two manufacturers of dilatometry equipment, TA Instruments has continued to invest in dilatometry. Most recently, the company introduced three new lines of mechanical and optical dilatometers well-suited for the ceramic industry: DIL 830, ODP 860 and DIL 820.
From abrasive wheels and agglomerators to wire screening cloth and X-ray systems (and everything in between!), our year-round Equipment Digest reference tool helps manufacturers find suppliers for hundreds of different types of machinery and equipment used for various manufacturing processes in the ceramic, glass, refractories, and brick industries.
In the U.S., the main body developing the design standards of kilns, furnaces and ovens is the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), through NFPA 86 Standard for Ovens and Furnaces. But the ceramic industry has misconceptions about NFPA 86, and no wonder.
