Morgan Ceramics showcases innovative materials that promote energy efficiency and extend component life at Power-Gen International 2012

Morgan Ceramics will be showcasing a range of innovative materials that promote energy conservation and operational efficiency and extend component life at Power-Gen International, taking place December 11-13, 2012, at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, FL. In Booth 1405, Morgan Ceramics will feature a wide selection of products from both its Thermal Ceramics and Technical Ceramics businesses.

Experienced engineers will be on hand to provide a general overview of capabilities, demonstrate products on display, or provide private consultations regarding custom solutions for specific problems or applications.

Morgan Thermal Ceramics will be highlighting products that promote energy conservation and operational efficiency in the power generation and general maintenance markets including; materials designed for new boilers, revamping existing boilers, or treating hot spots. A range of Superwool® Plus fiber products, ideal for furnace lining insulation in both the power and nuclear markets, will be on display, including Superwool® Plus blanket which features a low bio-persistent fiber. With its lower thermal conductivity, the material enables thinner linings, resulting in significant weight and energy savings.

Morgan Technical Ceramics will be showing its Wesgo pre-sintered preforms (PSP), a sintered metallurgy product that is ideal for high temperature applications in the power generation industry. PSPs provide an effective, reliable solution for crack repair and re-establishing wear areas in industrial gas turbine engines, saving considerable time and money and extending the life of engine components by up to 300 percent.

Also on display will be electrical connectors and liners for down-hole drilling. Electrical connectors are used for continuous power supply for high voltage equipment requiring chemical resistance and good mechanical strength. These electrical connectors are typically made of high purity alumina ceramics, either 96%, AL-600 or 99.5%, AL-995. Liners are used to help maintain the drilling hole, and offer chemical and high temperature resistance. These tubes can be manufactured up to six feet in length, minimizing the number of joints required, and are made of 99.7%, Alsint 997 material. Morgan Technical Ceramics can also provide custom made ceramics to meet your design needs.
