GLYNWED AB, Sweden, is the technical ceramics division of FRIATEC AG for the Nordic Countries. FRIATEC is one of the leading manufacturers of high performance ceramic components for industrial use. GLYNWED/FRIATEC'S products fall into four main categories: engineering ceramics, high temperature ceramics - such as tubes and laboratory ware, electro ceramics and fine grinding tools. Marketed under the FRIALIT®-DEGUSSIT® brand name all these products are manufactured from high purity ceramic materials. Materials include aluminium oxide, zirconium oxide, silicon carbide, silicon nitride and boron carbide and many more.
FRIALIT®-DEGUSSIT® materials are employed in a wide range of applications in mechanical and chemical engineering, the offshore industry, pharmaceutical and food processing industries and in the electro and micro ware fields.
FRIALIT®-DEGUSSIT® engineering ceramic materials all exhibit the same core characteristics, these include:
High mechanical strength even at high temperatures
Extremely resistant to wear and corrosion
Excellent resistance to thermal chock
Low specific gravity
Highly suitable for applications in the pharmaceutical and food processing machinery - certified by FDA (Food and Drug Administration, USA)
Excellent properties for electrical and thermal resistance
Stability at high temperatures up to 1950°C
These characteristics will enable the engineer to design ceramic parts that will work under extreme conditions where traditional materials would fail. Special problems demand special solutions.
Special components for the offshore industry are f.e. components for wear and corrosion applications such as pump, dosage and filling components (bushings, casings, shafts, pistons and plungers, plumbers, cylinders etc) flow meters, slide bearings, components for valves (precision balls, shafts, sealing discs, valve discs, valve balls, valve cones and seats etc.) and components for precision tools, plus many more.
We are specialised in connecting ceramic to ceramic and ceramic to metal. The metal parts are then strengthened by ceramic in zones exposed to abrasion an corrosion. Different connecting methods are used such as shrinking, soldering, brazing, glueing and sintering- in.
ELECTRO CERAMIC COMPONENTS
FRIALIT® ceramic-metal-assemblies joined together through brazing include electrical feedthroughs, high pressure feedthroughs, standoffs, insulators, sensor housings, sensors, thyristor housings etc. For applications under high pressure and high temperature or in vacuum technology, furnaces, flow meters, electronics, locomotives, X-ray tubes, research i.e. accelerator etc.
HIGH TEMPERATURE CERAMICS
Tubes, rods, laboratory ware and insulating powder made of DEGUSSIT® oxide ceramics have excellent properties when used for temperature insulation and anti corrosion applications in measuring, electronics, microwave and radar equipment as well as the and heat treatment industries.
Due to characteristics such as high dielectric strength, good thermal conductivity, stability in oxidising and reducing atmospheres, ultra high vacuum resistance, extreme resistance to corrosion and thermal chock.
FINE GRINDING TOOLS
DEGUSSIT® fine grinding tools developed by FRIATEC include whetstones, files, midget files, grinding wheels, mounted points and burnishing wheels. They all offer the same advantages which include extreme hardness, great wear resistance, excellent stability of edges and profiles, outstanding surface finish of the machined parts and extensive size and shape availability.
DEGUSSIT® Fine Grinding Tools are bondfree, and the great hardness of the sintered crystals results in high wear resistance and excellent shape stability. This property is particularly important for precision work to ensure finest surface finish and accuracy of shape. The outstanding wear resistance also offers economical advantages.
50 YEARS EXPERIENCE IN OXIDE CERAMICS
GLYNWED/FRIATEC have over 50 years of experience in the manufacture of high-tech ceramic products and materials.
During the years we have consolidated great knowledge and experience within the production of customer specified components for the offshore industry, regarding both choices of material and of product design. This makes us an obvious co-operating partner in achieving the highest quality solutions.
Today we supply several well-known Scandinavian companies with our ceramic products such as ABB, Tetra Pak, Volvo, Saab, Haldex, Siemens, ITT Flygt, Lego, Danfoss, Aker Kvaerner group, Rotator Roxar Flow Management, and Schlumberger.
We kindly request that customers based in the Nordic countries contact our sales office in Spånga, Stockholm. All other customers are requested to contact Friatec AG, Mannheim in Germany at www.friatec.de (see Regional Offices page).
