Ceramic To Metal Seal Assemblies
The two basic
techniques for sealing ceramics to metal - "molybdenum-manganese"
and "active-metal (including titanium hydride)" - were pioneered
by General Electric over 45 years ago. Our history and experience
goes back to the days when we were General Electric. Though no longer
part of GE, today at MPD's facility in Owensboro, Kentucky, this same
leadership is making available newer and more sophisticated techniques
and processes to meet the critical demands of medical, aerospace,
industrial customers for sensors, feedthroughs, hermetic seals, structural
components and other advanced precision ceramic/metal assemblies.
Please contact us so
we can help you design a ceramic/metal component to meet your needs.
wide range of ceramic-to-metal combinations is available, in almost
any configuration, for your consideration. MPD alumina and forsterite
ceramics are currently being used in assemblies which make use of
the following metals:
certain stainless steels
In fact, depending upon geometry and seal design, virtually all metals
can now be satisfactorily sealed to one of MPD's ceramic materials.
Through the use of proprietary as well as standard industry techniques,
ceramic-to-metal seals can also be prepared to stand duty in severe
environments involving ultra-high vacuums and temperatures, high RF
fields, corrosive vapors and liquids, and many others.
