During Elan’s spray drying process, operating conditions such as temperature, wheel speed (if applicable) and pump pressure are closely monitored to ensure consistent product quality. In-process quality control can be tailored to the requirements of each specific customer. However, we typically monitor particle size distribution, moisture content and bulk density.

Another popular advanced industrial ceramic is steatite, which is favored for many electrical applications because it possesses excellent electrical insulating properties. Elan Technology’s steatite compositions are used in applications, such as thermostats for household ranges and internal components for HVAC systems.

Glass-to-metal seals have now been in use for over a hundred years, starting with the early Houskeeper or vacuum tube seals, and advancing to elaborate SOFC fuel cells, and beyond. It is now recognized there are many factors to the quality of a seal, from pre-cleaning and pre-oxidation, to furnace atmosphere, and presence of carbide precipitates.
