Refractron is a leader in porous ceramics for separation, purification, and filtration. Our standard SiC formulations range from 6 microns to 42 but air flow and filtration can be tailored with or without a membrane. The formulations can be used to create a variety of shapes, but they are often used to make elements or hot gas candles to filter emissions. SiC plates are used as vacuum chucks. Standard hot gas candles are manufactured with 3.15” flanges, 2.38” outer diameter, 1.56” inner diameter at lengths up to 60” (1500mm) and plates are routinely manufactured up to 12” (305mm) in length and width. Additional sizes and shapes can be discussed during an initial engineering assessment.
