Boron Nitride (BN) Nozzle
We provide standard products & tailor-made products for hot-pressed boron nitride nozzle. Except for pure BN99 crucible, we also supply BN composites with silicon carbide, calcium borate, aluminum nitride, and zirconia, to fulfill various demands of the customers. Check the boron nitride specifications for our pure BN99 and zirconia composite material ZSBN.
High purity boron nitride nozzles could withstand higher temperatures in a vacuum than lower purity boron nitride nozzles. Although we usually claim the maximum working temperature as 2500C, there’s a record to use our material at 3000+ C. Due to the low wettability with metals, boron nitride is an ideal material to handle molten metals, especially for high purity material metal in a vacuum.

Boron Nitride Nozzle Advantages & Applications:
Boron Nitride ceramic from Edgetech Industries Ceramics Division can withstand high temperatures in a high vacuum environment, plus it has excellent corrosion resistance and electrical resistance.
-Low wettability to molten metal
-Relatively high thermal conductivity with low thermal expansion
-Relatively high thermal shock resistance
-Extremely high working temperature with proper inert gas protection (>3000C has been recorded).
Based on the above properties, Boron Nitride Nozzle is an ideal choice in a wide range of industries, such as:
-Electric insulators in vacuum system
-Boron Nitride components for PVD, MOCVD, MBE system.
-Nozzles for nonferrous metals metallurgy industry
-Spacers for glass melting
-Insulators for high-temperature furnace
As a ceramic material, boron nitride is quite fragile in a lot of cases. Our Hot-Pressed Boron Nitride Crucible is carefully handled to minimize damage during storage and transportation. Suitable outer boxes and inner cushioning materials are used for BN products, vacuum packing is also engaged for some of the parts.
