ESK boron nitride (BN) break rings and casting nozzles meet the strictest quality requirements. They have specific properties that increase the service lives of metals, particularly in the case of steel, copper and precious metals.
EKatherm® silicon nitride radiant heater tubes are deal for use as immersion heaters. EKatherm® silicon nitride from ESK is the ideal material for cost-efficient heating of molten aluminum.
Casting nozzles and plugs of EKatherm® silicon nitride are highly wear resistant and ensure uniform casting weights over very long periods.
EKatherm® silicon nitride is the material of choice for the cost-optimized operation of electromagnetic pumps.
The microstructure of EKatherm® is responsible for the particularly high mechanical strength, thermal shock resistance and gas tightness, and it is therefore the ideal material for silicon nitride (Si3N4) riser tubes.
ESK’s EKatherm® silicon nitride (Si3N4) is the material of choice for thermocouple protection tubes and riser tubes, especially for products that come into contact with molten aluminum.
MYCROSINT® boron nitride ceramic crucibles from ESK meet the high requirements for precise analysis during metallurgical processes, ensuring constant product quality and minimum rejects.
For release of liquid light-metal melts and aluminum melts, ESK boron nitride sprays and suspensions are outstanding release agents that also ensure good adhesion and therefore long service lives.
