Global engineering company Morgan Advanced Materials applies world-class material science and manufacturing expertise to solve its customers’ technical challenges.
A plethora of expertise makes up the complex products and services offered by Morgan Advanced Materials, but it essentially boils down to a simple concept: helping its customers achieve more with less.
However, when you look at the vast amount of what customers can get through Morgan Advanced Materials, the bottom line might almost seem like a paradox.
Superwool® XTRA, a low-biopersistent fiber, meets stringent environmental requirements in addition to high-temperature tolerance and improved pollutant resistance.
Lining iron and steel furnaces is critical to extend the life of the furnaces and to protect the purity of the metals being heat treated. Therefore, choosing the best material to meet these needs is crucial. For many years, the first-choice material for the industry has been refractory ceramic fiber (RCF), which can withstand the extreme temperatures within the furnace and has strong resistance to pollutants.
As an Advanced Materials Company, Morgan constantly upgrades its products to deliver more value to its customers. Morgan's Motel Metal Systems business is proud to introduce its latest range of next generation crucibles for Aluminium holding application – VAluStar™.
Backed by Morgan’s expertise and experience of over 160 years in manufacturing crucibles for nonferrous metals, VAluStar™ crucibles are highly resistant to oxidation at low temperatures, thanks to Morgan’s proprietary glazes. These crucibles are particularly best suited for holding Aluminium and Aluminium alloys in electric resistance furnaces.
Morgan Advanced Materials, world leaders in ceramic and carbon materials science and engineering, is descending on GIFA with a range of its innovative high-performance materials.
GIFA is one of the largest international exhibitions for foundry and metallurgy technology, taking place once every four years in Germany. This year, Morgan is exhibiting with three of its key global businesses, including its Molten Metal System, Thermal Ceramics, and Haldenwanger® teams. Each business will have a range of high-performance materials on show to help with linings for furnaces, kilns, crucibles and more.
Reliance on wind power is increasing, so the industry must continue to find ways to operate more efficiently, while reducing maintenance and costs. One key to wind energy lies in the turbine’s slip rings, says George Finley, Wind Segment Manager from the Electrical Carbon business of Morgan Advanced Materials.
Wind power in the United States is booming and vast farms of turbines are sprouting across large parts of the country. While this trend isn’t representative of every US state, the country’s use of wind power is on the up and it’s showing no signs of anchoring just yet. Indeed, wind power is on track to overtake hydropower as the U.S. grid’s largest source of renewable electricity in 2019, according to data from the US Energy Information Administration (EIA).
Demand for turbine engine blades is increasing, and the investment casting industry is looking for more efficient manufacturing processes. The two key materials currently used – alumina and silica (quartz) – have advantages and drawbacks in terms of strengths and processing time. Eric Larson, Director of Technology and Process Improvement at the Technical Ceramics Business of Morgan Advanced Materials, explains how Morgan’s innovative new material LEMA™ combines the two’s best aspects to provide an effective solution for manufacturers.
Regenerative Thermal Oxidisers (RTOs) are often treated as a mandatory piece of the operation puzzle. However, with the right lining, they can add crucial advantages to the manufacturing process, explains Alex Powell, Applications Engineer and Tyler Ferguson, Product Manager at the Thermal Ceramics business of Morgan Advanced Materials.
Air pollution is a hot topic globally and shows no signs of abating. According to EURACTIV, some 40 million people in the 115 largest cities of the EU are exposed to pollution exceeding World Health Organisation air quality guideline values (for at least one pollutant), the result is approximately 100,000 premature adult deaths each year.
The space industry is growing fast and is predicted to be worth over a trillion dollars by 2040. Keith Ferguson, Senior Business Development Manager at Morgan Advanced Materials’ Braze Alloys Business, explains how braze alloys play their part in safe, reliable and sustainable space exploration.
The saying goes “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”. This famous phrase, uttered by Neil Armstrong, is the perfect advertisement for space exploration and its importance to the future.
Less than a century old, space exploration has come on leaps and bounds since the first artificial satellite, Sputnik 1, was propelled into space in 1957. Since then, the world has witnessed marvels such as landing on the moon, the space shuttle programme of the 1970s, and the launch of the International Space Station.
When it comes to lining fired heaters in the petrochemical industry, RCF has been the go-to material, but it has its drawbacks. Steve Chernack, Global Engineering Manager at Morgan Advanced Materials’ Thermal Ceramics business, looks at how these can be mitigated, and a new option for petrochemical operators.
Alysha Liebscher, Business Development Manager, and Gary Gayman, Senior R&D Developer, at the Thermal Ceramics business of Morgan Advanced Materials explain why protecting against thermal runaway in electric vehicles is critical and discuss the options available to manufacturers.
