Ceramic Rod & Tube
Accuratus maintains an inventory of standard extruded and cast
aluminum oxide, mullite and sialon ceramic tubes and rods for
fast delivery requirements. These are low cost, quality rods
and tubes that can be quickly cut to precision lengths. (See
Aluminum Oxide Sizes
and Sialon Sizes).
Accuratus will also custom fabricate any tube geometry not
shown in the standard catalog list. Please call us for
your special requirements or send your engineering drawings
Low cost, volume manufacturing processes are used to produce
these tubes. Strong and impervious, they are extruded in
smaller sizes and cast in larger sizes then batch fired at
high temperatures in specialty kilns to maintain dimensional
integrity and consistent material properties.
Detailed information on the mullite,
and sialon is available in the
section. The mullite is characterized by a low thermal
expansion coefficient. The aluminum oxide is noted for it’s
superior refractoriness. Sialon is an outstanding thermal
shock resistant material. Each material offers the
designer, engineer and scientist a cost effective,
electrically insulating, high temperature material.
Mullite, aluminum oxide and sialon rod and tubing find a wide
range of applications throughout industry and academia. Their
excellent combinations of material properties make them
suitable for a wide range of demanding thermal, chemical, wear
and electrical applications.
