Ceramics for Medical Instruments

Technical Ceramics are ideal materials to use for high performance products as they have superior dimensional stability, strength, and hardness. Parts made from Technical Ceramics are resistant to extreme heat, physical and chemical wear, and corrosion during processing. This ensures that they meet tough approval standards and can be used in many processes including applications in Aerospace, Medical Equipment, and General Industrial applications.

High quality Technical Ceramic parts can be designed and produced to meet the individual needs of applications. These can be produced to meet custom specifications using unique materials that are also moisture resistant with zero porosity and non-outgassing.

Precision Ceramics USA supplies components and sub-assemblies such as connectors, terminals, standoffs, and other insulators that result in high performance and long life compared with plastics and other organic materials.

Within the field of medical instrumentation, Technical Ceramic materials can be found in the following:

  • Pump components
  • Valves & seals
  • Thermocouples
  • Refractory Furnaces
  • Vacuum chambers – high-voltage feedthrough
  • High-pressure feedthroughs & housings for X-ray image intensifiers
