Prairie Ceramics manufacturing
Prairie Ceramics manufactures slip cast alumina parts in a variety of Alumina content. The most common is 99.8% Alumina gas tight with density of 3.91 g/cc.
In addition to 99.8% Alumina we also make:
98% Alumina 95% Alumina 91% Alumina. 85% Alumina
Our capabilities include very large shapes including crucibles 13.5″ diameter x 6″ tall. We can make wall thicknesses from 0.125″ to 0.315″.
These are primarily used in firing and calcining operations where density and high purity are required.
Coiled Wire Wire with ceramic holder, flat and round.
Coiled wire manipulated into kiln specific configurations.
We work with a variety of wire, the most common is Kanthal APM and A1 wire in heavier gages including 8GA, 9GA, 10GA.
We specialize in replacement heating elements for Nabertherm kilns including but not limited to the following models
N150 N200 N300 N450 W1000 W1500 W3300 W5000
We make thermocouples for all types of kilns and specialize in thermocouples for Nabertherm, HED / Unique Pereney, Bickley and Lindberg.
Our most common application is to paint onto Recrystallized Silicon Carbide tile and beams to prevent the silica from sticking to parts.
In lead environments it works great for extending lining life of brick or fiber.
