Extreme thermal shock

In facilities for testing auto­motive exhaust systems extreme thermo cycles at high tem­per­a­tures has to be realized. There­fore thin walled and thermal shock resist­ant ceramic struc­tures with good insu­lat­ing pro­per­ties were needed. For this case dif­fer­ent struc­tures made of “Keramikblech” were oper­at­ing success­fully in test facil­ities of auto­motive suppliers. Examples are:

  • burning chambers
  • static mixer for getting homogeneous gas streams
  • hot gas distributors
  • slide valve for gas stream regulation
  • thermal protection and thin walled insulation structures
