H.C. Starck Ceramics offers high-tech solutions made of high-performance ceramics for mechanical and plant engineering – from prototypes to series production. It is no longer possible to think of mechanical and plant engineering without ceramic materials. Ceramics expand the possible use and performance of your systems – whether as an established application, such as a seal in rotating mechanical seals, or as a bearing for shafts in pumps in the chemical industry, or in new applications, such as a friction disk in a clutch. Due to their superior material properties, high-performance ceramics have an enormously diverse variety of applications. Another advantage is that acids, alkalis and high temperatures pose no problem for technical ceramics. Whereas metals and plastics have their limits, or where these limits are actually exceeded, our high-performance ceramics stand out from other materials. They are impressive for their unsurpassed wear resistance, dimensional stability and low weight. Through continuous controls along the value chain, H.C. Starck Ceramics guarantees the best quality ceramic products and solutions for mechanical and plant engineering.

Technical ceramics for mechanical and plant engineering
Milling – Where other materials fail, StarCeram excels. Contaminant-free production is critical in the food and pharmaceutical industries. It is therefore recommended to use mills made of ceramic components, since these guarantee no corrosion and the lowest degree of abrasion, which prevents contamination in the relevant production facility. Replacing metallic (especially ferrous) components with ceramic components also eliminates the risk of iron contamination, which is particularly critical in the above-mentioned industries.
Conveying – StarCeram products offer the highest degree of reliability and resistance. In modern conveying systems, chemical attacks, high temperatures and serious abrasion by products increasingly call for the use of high-performance ceramics. With their exceptional reliability and service life, StarCeram high-performance ceramics from H.C. Starck Ceramics have made their mark in conveyor technology.
Spraying – Optimized spraying with nozzles made of StarCeram. For optimum and accurate spraying of extremely abrasive and corrosive materials, high-performance ceramics offer the best solution. Nozzles made of StarCeram are thus preferred in applications such as flue gas desulphurization. As multifaceted as the areas application for technical ceramics are, they never fail to impress with the highest quality standards.
