CoorsTek® Porous Ceramic Plates
The CoorsTek® porous ceramic plate is made of a P-1/2-BC material which has an average pore diameter of <0.5µm, a bubbling pressure of >80psi, an apparent porosity of 38.5%, and an absorption of 21.0%. Other porosities and sizes are available on special order. CoorsTek® Porous Ware easily incorporates into many chemical processing, pharmaceutical, mechanical, and electronic applications. Its reliability results from years of experience, advancement, and refinement of manufacturing techniques.
In chemical filtration, CoorsTek® porous ceramic labware can separate solid particles from liquid or gaseous suspensions. Stream flow is not obstructed by the filtering action. For gross particle filtration, clarification, polishing, and sterilization of serums, vaccines, antitoxins, and other biochemical solutions in the pharmaceutical environment, CoorsTek® Porous Ware is ideal. Mechanical and earth science uses include filtration, diffusion, pressure studies, and underground liquid containment studies. CoorsTek® Porous Ware is considered an excellent divider for electrolytic cells. The maximum operating temperatures range from 900° to 1400°C depending upon ceramic composition selected. Variation in temperature will not affect porosity characteristics within their working temperature range.
