Glynwed to Present Ceramics at ONS Norway Exhibition in Stavanger


At the ONS Norway exhibition in Stavanger, August 19 to 21, high-tech ceramic products manufacturer Glynwed will present its range of highly innovative FRIALIT®-DEGUSSIT® ceramic materials and products at stand 4010 in hall D.

Glynwed and Friatec have many years of experience in ceramic products for electrical and engineering applications. Glynwed has applied this collective experience and know-how on its products and solutions for the offshore and subsea markets. Together with its customers it develops suitable tailor-made constructions for special purposes.

At the ONS Norway exhibition, Glynwed will focus on electro-technology, where Glynwed / Friatec manufactures a wide variety of ceramic-to-metal seals, like ceramic high-pressure and high-power penetrators, connectors, different types of sensors as well as other ceramic-to-metal assemblies. The ceramic penetrators are designed to operate under high pressure, high voltage, high power and high or low temperatures in corrosive environments.

According to customer-application parameters, Glynwed will carefully find the right material combination of its ceramics together with the best-suited metals, layers and alloys. Glynwed uses highly insulating ceramics of the utmost quality in its components. Experienced Glynwed and Friatecs teams in the research and development and design departments have the required know-how and experience in connecting ceramics to various metals with different brazing technologies.

The penetrators can be produced with one or more pins, a ceramic insulator and a metal housing, all brazed together to make a hermetically sealed electrical feed-through or connector. The ceramic insulator consists of highly insulating 99.7% aluminium oxide FRIALIT® F99,7. If required, any of its other ceramic materials may be used depending on the application parameters.

Over the last year Glynwed has put a lot of effort into developing its processes in order to present a standard range of ceramic penetrators. This will be presented in the near future.

Glynwed’s ceramic-to-metal assemblies are suitable in numerous applications, including subsea systems, high pressure oil systems, vacuum and instrument systems, with pressures of up to 2,000 bar. Whether you have high voltage, high power, high pressure or all three, Glynwed will try to find a solution.

Glynwed also has vast experience and know-how for mechanical engineering applications in components. These include:

  • Pistons and plungers for high pressure pumps
  • Impellers
  • Precision balls for valves or bearing applications
  • Other valve components like seats and discs
  • Slide bearings
  • Full ceramic or hybrid ball and roller bearings
  • Casings
  • Shafts
  • Seal rings
  • Bushings and axial sleeves
  • Nozzles
  • Flow meters
  • Multi phase meters

The components have excellent resistant to wear, erosion and corrosion.
