The U.S. Energy Information Administration projects world energy consumption will increase 56% by 2040. To satisfy this anticipated growth, not only must we develop alternative, renewable energy sources... new and better methods must be found for making the most of existing energy sources and power generation technologies. Ceramco’s OEM ceramic parts are already contributing (on both fronts) to this ongoing development.
Overcoming Hostile Environmental Challenges
The production of natural gas, crude oil and nuclear power all require materials that must withstand the harshest imaginable conditions. Deepwater drilling for both natural gas and crude oil is no exception. The ocean adds several hundred meters or more to the fluid column, increasing the equivalent circulating density and downhole pressures in the drilling well. Ceramco’s OEM ceramic parts made of aluminum oxide (Al2O3, alumina) exhibit very high compressive strength, easily handling these incredible pressures and the constant friction. Also, Ceramco OEM ceramic parts are unaffected by the corrosive nature of saltwater.
Both the materials and processes involved producing nuclear energy pose extreme material challenges. In the nuclear fuel cycle, fuel rods are bombarded by neutrons, producing heat and radioactive byproducts. Ceramco OEM ceramic parts made of aluminum oxide (Al2O3, alumina) are inert and unreactive when subjected to these conditions. The inherent properties of OEM ceramic parts from Ceramco are such that they also easily withstand long term exposure to the temperature extremes found in the reactor vessel.
and the challenge to keep them so.
Renewable energy is a rapidly expanding business. Global fuel cell shipments are projected to increase at a compound annual growth rate of 49.1% from 2014 to 2020. Yet, when we think of clean, renewable energy, our thoughts often do not include the processes necessary to work in concert with the environment in which these energy sources are generated. Green technologies using advanced power generation processes for alternative energy require equally advanced materials. Ceramco manufactures OEM ceramic parts that operate safely at elevated temperatures for extended periods. They do not oxidize; therefore posing virtually no contamination threat and are chemically inert and non-reactive to their surroundings.
People Making it Happen
New or old, renewable or finite, it takes energy to power the modern world. The energy within the people at Ceramco is what has powered us to the status of “world class manufacturer of OEM ceramic parts.” It is the same energy, commitment and skill that powers every OEM ceramic part we manufacture to meet customer expectations and fully comply with the specifications.
