Formula or mixes

Ceramic-B01M1

This ceramic part is developed from a moderately fired largely Talc body. The resulting ceramic material, made from a time proven formula, is a utilitarian ceramic having good porosity, tough exterior and interior surfaces, and is ivory white in colour. This material is recommended for general purpose uses that involve pressure differentials under 1 Bar (14.5 psi). Typical bubbling pressure is 20 to 30 psi, the effective pore size 1.7 micron, hydraulic conductivity .000000756 cm/sec, approximate porosity 34% by vol. and flow through 1/4 inch plate is 5.0 ml/hr/sqcm,@14.7 psi. This ceramic is an excellent choice where cost and precise content of fluids or extracts are not at issue. This material has been applied successfully to tensiometers, pressure plate assemblies, suction tables and the like for nearly 50 years. This ceramic is not recommended for precision fluid sampling work as it has some ionic exchange sites and a mineralogy that is leachable with strong acids over the years. This is the perfect choice for those needing a low cost industrial ceramic product or where the science requires no sampling or chemistry of fluids transferred though ceramic pores.

Ceramic-B01M3

This ceramic part is developed from a high fired Alumina body. The resulting ceramic is an excellent material. It is extremely porous, inert to most all solutions, possesses hard exterior and interior surfaces, and is pure white in colour. This material is recommended for standard pressure differentials under 1 Bar (14.5 psi). Typical bubbling pressure is 19 to 28 psi, the effective pore size 2.5 micron, hydraulic conductivity .0000086 cm/sec, approximate porosity 45% by vol. and flow through 1/4 inch plate is 50 ml/hr/sqcm,@14.7 psi. The tremendous porosity and ability to conduct large amounts of fluids or gases makes it ideal for quick extractions, and creating, monitoring or extracting pulse hydrological events. The material is ideal for liquid or gas sampling as the Alumina material has almost no ionic exchange sites or leachable mineralogy. A great material for most any application involving sampling, testing, monitoring or infusion where precision and actual liquid contents are of importance.
