Ceramic balls are particularly well suited for use in
extremely harsh environments where high temperatures, corrosive
and erosive substances are present.
Standard 99.5% alumina oxide ceramic balls have proven
performance in wear, heat and corrosive environments, as well
as, in maintaining dimensional stability at temperatures up to
Alumina resists oxidation and is tolerant to water, salt
solutions, and many chemicals and acids, but is not suitable for
use in hydrochloric or hydrofluoric acids or strong alkaline
Typical applications include pumps, valves and flow meters.
