Sialon heater tubes are the most effective method of heating the melt in the aluminium processing industry.
Our heater tubes are often used in degassing boxes such as ALPUR, Pyrotek SNIF, Hertwich or even Chinese manufacturers of inline degassing systems for molten aluminium.
The range of heater tubes available is very diverse and can be manufactured to a maximum outside diameter of 200mm and maximum length of 1600mm.
The combined properties of silicon nitride (high strength, hardness, fracture toughness, and low thermal expansion) and aluminum oxide (corrosion resistance, chemically inert, high temperature capabilities, and oxidation resistance).
Sialon heater tube’s, ceramic heater tubes, Sialon immersion tubes made of silicon nitride with 500 % more thermal conductivity (50 W/mK) than conventional Silicon Nitride, Si3N4 heater tubes (17 W/mK) combined with the highest impact fracture toughness of 7.7 MPa · m1/2.
With an extensive product line offering from small style sialon sheaths to the largest Sialon immersion tubes for ALPUR degassing units, our company has the experience and capability to satisfy your needs.
Sialon immersion tubes are available with plain ends, grooved ends for assembly with metal flanges, or with integral collars for the optimum in strength and reliability. Sialon heater tube’s are made of a very homogeneous material that provides uniformity and consistent thermal conductivity, not to be confused with silicon nitride or syalon.
Because of its strength and corrosion resistance, our silicon nitride heater tubes have proven effective with both electric and gas fired heaters.
Sialon heater tubes have a very long service life and have a 12 months warranty against chemical attack.
