Reliable Zirconia Ceramic Parts for Pump and Valve Components

Zirconia Pump & Valve Components

Why Specify Refractron’s Proprietary Izory®HD MgPSZ Pump & Valve Components

  • Reduce maintenance costs
  • Extend the life of mating components because of its low coefficient of friction
  • Izory®HD is 15% harder, 30% stronger, 40% better in abrasion resistance traditional MgPSZ
  • 2-3X tougher than alumina, sintered SiC and tungsten carbide
  • Offers a light weight, corrosion resistant option to steel and tungsten carbide

Why Specify YTZP(H) DARK for High Pressure Pumps

  • Near pristine microstructure allows polishing to <0.5 micro inch Ra, which can extend maintenance cycles specifically on critical seals
  • Excellent wear resistance driven by its near perfect microstructure, & hardness
  • Offers a light weight, corrosion resistant option to steel and tungsten carbide
  • 3-4 times stronger than alumina and up to 2 times stronger than MgPSZ
