Porous Ceramics

Superior Technical Ceramics has developed Porous Ceramics for use in filtration, diffusion, separation and purification applications. Uniquely porous, this ceramic material contains open-cell structure that allows the free flow of liquid or gas to an opposing structure allowing fluidic communication. Porous ceramic can be used in place of metals, plastics or fibers providing equal or higher levels of performance and extending the useful life under harsh conditions.

Porous Ceramics have a wide range of uses in manufacturing across industries such as medical, mining, oil & gas exploration, alternative energy, emissions control, metal refinement, chemical processing, pharmaceutical, printing, wine making and other industries. Specific applications include instrumentation, analytical sensors, semiconductor components, alternative energy assemblies, battery separators, emissions monitoring sensors among many others.

We utilize Aluminum oxide, Zirconia Toughened Alumina (ZTA) and Partially Stabilized Zirconia (YTZP) in a proprietary manufacturing process that allows us to tailor the porosity, pore size and permeability to suit the customer's application. These materials are adaptable having a  pore size ranging from .05 to 150 micro meters and 10 to 50% porosity to match your technical needs. Find out more specifications here.

With the ability to withstand a pH range of 2 - 10, continuous use up to 1500 degrees Celsius, high erosion resistance and offering strengths from 500 to 20,000 psi (dependent on porosity) this porous ceramic may be the answer to your severe application challenges.
