Silicate Ceramics for Evaporation Technology
Collecting, Storing and Releasing Liquid Substances
Special ceramic materials are characterized by their high porosity. CeramTec uses the silicate ceramic material FAW to manufacture ceramic bodies that are able to collect, store and then selectively release liquid substances.
An effect used for example in the evaporation of insect repellents and odorous substances or for the detection of chemical substances through flame coloration in the laboratory.
CeramTec manufactures these silicate ceramic evaporator elements with a variety of application-specific, yet precisely defined porosities. This not only enables the exact determination of the quantities collected, but also ensures even evaporation of precisely dosed substance quantities.
Exemplary solutions in evaporation technology:
- Evaporation wicks for aromatics and insecticide emission
- Rods and runners for chemical lab specimen tests
