Using proprietary glass forming processes, the business can manufacture small or large quantities of glass tubing and rod to precise tolerances. With a large portfolio of glass compositions, Morgan can develop materials whose coefficient of thermal expansion precisely meets the expansion properties of components being sealed.

Compositions of borosilicate, including those made of the well-known K-glass material, are used for Kovar sealing, microwave, and fuse casing applications. Soda lime compositions can be used for dumet sealing, a known method to seal copper leads using soda-lime or lead glass, and compression seals, while soda barium options are ideal for compression seals.

Morgan manufactures precision glass products in accordance with ITAR regulations and can support any products that are components within an ITAR application, including laptops, peripherals, and cockpit communications sensor systems

WS510 Secondary Standard

WS510 Secondary Standard

In the monitoring of large photovoltaic (Utility Scale), in assessing potential sites (Solar-assessment), or in up and coming electricity cost saving initiatives projects (Commercial & Industrial), the WS510 now provides the market a secondary standard pyranometer, ultrasonic wind speed, ultrasonic wind direction, temperature, pressure and humidity all in a single unit.. This sensor meets the high demands of the world meteorological organization (WMO) through the active valving at air temperature measurement and the inertia- and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction on the ultrasonic principle. Equipped with a Kipp & Zonen pyranometer of the secondary standards, the WS510-UMB Compact weather sensor from Lufft unites the precision of a variety of meteorological individual sensors in a single all-in-one device, for the first time.
