Refractron Technologies Corp. is a leading manufacturer of technical ceramics. Products include both controlled porosity and densely structured ceramics designed to meet requirements specified by our customers for durability, chemical, corrosion and wear resistance, toughness, and density.
The range of dense structural ceramics using proprietary zirconia ceramics includes custom blended ceramic alloy powders formed by isopressing or extrusion to meet customer specifications. Refractron’s zirconia is offered in two materials Magnesia Partially Stabilized Zirconia, Mg-PSZ and Yttria Tetragonal Zirconia Polycrystal, Y-TZP. Refractron’s structural ceramic zirconia materials provide excellent erosion, corrosion and abrasion resistance along with temperature resistance, fracture toughness and strength. These ceramic alloy components are used in extreme service applications that take advantage of their superior wear and corrosion resistance. Numerous applications for these materials are in the chemical and petrochemical industry providing economic payback in the way of reduced maintenance and down time. Zirconia is also becoming the material of choice for components in healthcare and dental applications.
This dense structural ceramic material is usually precision ground using conventional diamond cutters and wheels. Machines used for precision grinding include: surface grinders, CNC milling machines, jig grinders, center less grinders, CNC lathes, ID grinders, etc.
The types of dense, structural ceramic components produced by Refractron include: valve components, pump liners, plugs, sleeves, pistons, precision ceramic balls, spools, press tooling, dental blanks, extrusion tooling and wear plates. Other specialty products include a range of porous ceramic filters, diffusers and adsorbent filter/drier cores for refrigeration applications, dispersion parts, vacuum chucks, inkpads and gas probes.
We work closely with our customers to define their needs and the requirements of each specific structural ceramic application. Our engineering and sales team is great at attacking technical design and process problems, then customizing an innovative solution using our broad range of advanced industrial ceramics.
