Cordierite is a silicate ceramic material
. Cordierite parts are available as accessory items
for our ceramic heating elements. We either acquire the finished cordierite components from
outside suppliers or we machine the parts ourselves on the premises according to drawings.
Further materials like aluminum oxide, an oxide ceramic material
, are also pre-purchased,
often in the form of small tubes or in other configurations.
Calcium silicate panels for use as thermal insulation panels can be made available too. They
are electrically and thermally insulating, break-proof, and thermally stable at temperatures of
up to 1000 °C and higher. The material quality is selected on an individual basis.
On request we can also produce ceramic elements made of silicon nitride and aluminum nitride
without the heating function. Such elements can be used as specimen holders, distance pins, or
heat conduction devices for instance. Small production lots and prototypes are possible too.
The mounting of ceramic sockets is often made with the help of a sealing compound. Thanks to its
high electrical insulation resistance, this compound is very suitable for grouting of delicate electrical
and electronic assemblies and is temperature resistant. At temperatures of less than 400 °C, high
temperature sealing enamels are also used for connecting to the heating element and serve as
moisture protection too.
On request cordierite elements are provided with drill holes and slots and can in this manner be implemented as bushing, socket and insulating elements for instance.
For the use at operating temperatures of up to 500 °C, ceramic elements made of silicon nitride
can also be soldered on. If the requested design can not be made in one piece, this is a good
alternative. Please contact us for a custom-made solution
to your specifications.
