Morgan Thermal Ceramics: Fired Refractory Shapes

September 14, 2012

This company recently announced the availability of fired refractory shapes for use in the metals manufacturing market. Among the products offered are Cerox® fired refractory shapes and MRI™ pressed and pre-fired refractory shapes, manufactured at facilities in Cañon City, Colo.; Augusta, Ga.; and Bromborough, UK. The materials are available in a range of compositions, including many specifically used for the manufacture of rotating and non-rotating airplane components and automotive turbochargers.

Cerox fired refractory shapes are reportedly dense, hard and chemically stable, offering resistance to acids, slags, and gases. The Sillimanite Cerox 200 (74% alumina, fired mullite composition), Cerox 700 (high alumina, versatile shape capability), and Cerox 720 (high alumina, high strength, fine grain for thin wall shapes) can be used for metal production. Combined with precisely controlled firing and 100% product inspection, the components are reportedly ideal for the most arduous of high-temperature environments.

MRI™ pressed and pre-fired refractory shapes, used in a variety of alloy melt-pour systems, reportedly meet tight tolerance specifications required by end users. Precise size dies and detailed product inspection offer a dimensionally accurate refractory shape. A variety of compositions are available, including MRI 90V, a 90% alumina mix commonly used for crucibles and furnace spouts in the metal producers industry; the MRI 95C, a 95% alumina, cement-bonded composition that offers a thermal shock resistant mix for tundishes, reportedly providing a superior surface finish and low silica content.
