Microwave Melting

With many years of experience in Microwave Melting, we have developed proven performance materials for crucibles, lids, flow control & insulation. At Prairie Ceramics, our expertise in Materials Science allows us to provide a complete process solution with years of industry use. These materials were originally developed at the Department of Energy’s Rocky Flats Plant and refined as Custom Technical Ceramics. 

Our MFH-57 ceramic body has been formulated for maximum performance in microwave melting and casting processes. 

In addition, we make Erbia coatings and Yttria coatings for these materials

Microwave has a unique set of requirements quite different from traditional melting technologies

  • Microwave melting crucibles
  • Microwave melting flow control ceramics
  • Microwave melting insulation packages
