High Temperature Fibre Insulation Solutions for Super Alloys

The Thermal Ceramics business of Morgan Advanced Materials makes advanced ceramic products and systems for thermal insulation in high temperature environments. Our material solutions are used in Super Alloy applications to improve productivity and energy efficiency.

Molten metal poured from crucible


Our unique offering of fibre, dense fired refractories and microporous provides Thermal Ceramics the ability to work with the entire heat treating cycle from transporting the melt stream to casting the molten alloy to reheating the solid alloy shapes. Superwool fibers, low bio-persistence insulating ceramic fibre is favoured by the metalworking industry because of its excellent thermal performance, lightweight and resistance to wetting. Cerox fired shapes have been the go-to material for decades to move the molten alloy in the process. Our material solutions are:

  • Crucibles
  • Tundishes and Distribution boxes
  • Caster tips for all types of twin-roll, thin-strip casting
  • Launders, Tap-Out Cones, Risers Sleeves, Ladles

Our newest technology, WDS microporous solutions, such as WDS Flexipor and WDS Ultra, have proven successful in improving ladle lining applications. The flexibility, lightweight and thermal efficiency of these materials allows us to engineer effective and reliable thermal systems that maintain optimal temperature distribution inside the furnace for a more homogeneous, better quality product, more efficient use of energy, and longer furnace life. 

At Morgan, our core strength is our ability to get to grips with individual customer challenges, partnering with them, using our materials and our applications expertise to engineer and install optimum, reliable thermal solutions. We have manufacturing facilities and sales offices in more than 40 countries and can advise on specific requirements for the processing of super alloys. Contact us for more information.
