Ceramic material are used in temperature measurement applications such as thermocouple protection tubes and insulators. The advantages of these protection tubes are resistance to high temperatures and thermal shock. This protection tubes have good abrasion resistance, high dielectric strength and chemical inertness.
The main applications are in the area of thermal processes, process equipment and scientific equipment. With extreme variety of materials applicable to high temperatures up to 2000ºC, aggressive media and rapid temperature change are available. Ceramics tubes come with (Close one end) support tubes for electric heaters, and thermocouple element protection
Most economical, Mullite material for kiln components.
Best, high temperature, ceramic material for kiln construction with 99,7% Al2O3 (the difference is mainly MgO and SiO2).
Silicon Carbide Pyrometer Tubes are designed for monitoring, melting and holding temperatures of aluminum and other non-ferrous alloys up to 2300ºF (1260ºC). They consist of silicon carbide/graphite isostatically formed around threaded pipe. These are supplied ready to use with a threaded 1/2" NPT steel pipes for rapid attachment to furnace
Silicon Nitride (Si3N4) thermocouple protection tube material is a good choice for thermocouple protection tubes, riser tubes, as well as for a whole range of other products with a high thermal conductivity, high strength and good thermal shock resistance.
Silicon nitride provides all these material properties. The material has such high
