Silicon Nitride Tube Description

Silicon Nitride TubeSilicon nitride tube is made of a high-melting-point ceramic material that is extremely hard and relatively chemically inert. Si3N4 is a man-made compound synthesized through several different chemical reaction methods. Due to the even performance in high temperature, Si3N4 is a commonly used ceramic material in the metallurgical industry. It has excellent thermal shock resistance due to the microstructure. The creep and oxidation resistance of Si3N4 is also superior, its low thermal conductivity and high wear resistance also make it an outstanding material that can withstand conditions of most industrial applications.

There are 5 different methods to produce silicon nitride Si3N4 ceramic, including SRBSN, GPSN, HPSN, HIP-SN and RBSN, make the application and working material different slightly. In these 5 methods of production, GPSN is most commonly used to produce Si3N4 components.
