Morgan Advanced Materials announces that its Latrobe, PA site now manufactures ceramic insulators for industrial oil and gas burner igniters. These insulators can also be used for a range of other industrial applications such as fuses, precision electrical resistors and cartridge heaters.
Morgan offers a number of custom material formulations and blends that are well suited for industrial igniters, including glazed and unglazed alumina and steatite. They can be produced with outer dimensions (OD) ranging from 0.050 to 2.5-inches, and inner dimensions as small as 0.020-inches.
The igniters are available in lengths up to 12 inches, and all the parts have counter bores and keyhole features. The company also offers automated high-volume glazing capabilities, barrel cutters, and drill press capabilities, along with a larger extruder that can manufacture rods with an OD of up to 1.5 inches and tubes with OD up to 2.5 inches.
In addition to a wide range of size options, Morgan’s automated manufacturing capabilities and in-house processing facilities speed up production time resulting in shorter lead times for this new line of products.
