Morgan Advanced Materials develops high-performance products for the evolving energy sector. The group makes components for power distribution and generation from renewable and traditional sources and is a world-leader in heat management insulation products.
Our components play a critical role in traditional and renewable power generation and throughout the electricity supply chain. Our materials technology allows more efficient use of energy in a wide variety of industries by reducing friction, providing better insulation and enabling new technologies.
World-renowned for performance and reliability, our brush technology is used in coal, gas, nuclear and wind power plants all over the world and is at the heart of electricity storage and distribution systems for applications from rail transport to electric vehicles.
We have a broad range of dielectric materials and high quality capacitance solutions for high voltage systems, and our piezo materials are key components in a number of energy-harvesting applications.
We make products that are used in the manufacture of thin-film photovoltaic cells for the solar industry and cores for industrial gas turbine blades. Our ceramic live line indicators are used in high voltage DC power distribution applications all over the world.
Our high-performance insulating products enable users to reduce their energy costs and improve their environmental performance. Our high-temperature insulating fibre, bricks and monolithics are used to optimise thermal efficiency in industrial applications with operating temperatures from 500°C to 1,600°C. Latest-generation low bio-persistent Superwool® Plus fibre is used in duct and chimney insulation, process heater linings, pipe wrap and automotive exhaust heat shields where its exceptionally low thermal conductivity allows engineers to specify a significantly thinner blanket to achieve the same level of insulation.
Our molten metal crucible technology is recognised as the most energy-efficient way to melt non-ferrous materials and is used extensively in the manufacture of copper components for electricity transmission systems.
We help the world’s leading producers of poly-silicon and silicon ingots to enhance solar cell performance. Our advanced insulation materials help to control the silicon melting process, optimising energy efficiency and reducing contamination, for more efficient photovoltaics.
Our graphite materials are used to make anodes for lithium-ion batteries for portable electronic devices, electric vehicles and grid energy storage and our carbon brushes and rotary transfer systems, designed to perform in the harshest environments, are used widely in wind power installations.
