High Temperature Ceramics

Choosing the appropriate high temperature ceramics hinges on a deep comprehension of the unique service demands of your high temperature applications.  Several key factors significantly influence the selection of the most suitable high temperature ceramic material. 

Thermocouples are temperature sensors, and advanced high temperature ceramic  protection tubes shield them during the firing process so they can provide accurate temperature readings.

Key Factors of High Temperature Ceramics

Service Temperature Range

Advanced ceramics exhibit varying thermal stability, with some capable of withstanding temperatures exceeding 2000°C. Understanding the specific temperature range of your application is essential for selecting the material that can maintain structural integrity and performance under extreme conditions.

Thermal shock resistance

High temperature environments often involve rapid temperature fluctuations, leading to thermal shock. Advanced ceramics with high thermal shock resistance can withstand these sudden changes in temperature without cracking or failure, ensuring long-term reliability.

coefficient of thermal expansion (cte)

Matching the CTE of ceramic materials with that of mating components is critical to prevent thermal stress and potential failure due to differential expansion or contracting during heating and cooling cycles.

operating environment

Consideration of the chemical composition and atmosphere in which the ceramics will operate is essential. Advanced ceramics may exhibit superior resistance to oxidation, corrosion, and chemical degradation, making them suitable for oxidizing or reducing atmospheres.

thermal insulation properties

Different high temperature environments, thermal insulation is critical to minimize heat transfer and maintain thermal efficiency. Advanced ceramics with low thermal conductivity serve as excellent insulating materials, reducing energy consumption and enhancing overall performance.
