High Purity Crucibles-Selection and Applications

Posted by Chia-yu Chen on

Crucibles are widely used in thermal and e-beam evaporation, crystal growth, and sintering applications. The two major factors of selecting crucibles are thermal and chemical compatibility.  The temperature range and the degree of corrosion resistant vary based on the crucible materials. The common crucible materials include aluminum oxide, graphite, quartz, boron nitride, tungsten, zirconia etc. MSE Supplies offers various crucibles and provide custom service. Below are some suggestions and guidelines for finding suitable crucibles Evaporation deposition Crucibles can be used in e-beam evaporation and thermal evaporation deposition. The materials to be evaporated are placed in a crucible. It requires high...

Diamond Paste / Suspension / Lubricant for Polishing Machines

Posted by Joey Oliva on

MSE Supplies offers Diamond Paste / Suspension / Lubricant from Metkon Technologies. Utilizing the optimal abrasive for sample preparation makes the difference between a mediocre sample and an impeccable one. As previously discussed, high quality specimen preparation is a critical phase of many analytical and transformative processes. If a polishing or grinding cloth / pad contains no abrasive internally, one suitable for the materials at hand will need to be applied.  Two crystalline forms of diamond are used for metallographic preparation: Polycrystalline (P) & Monocrystalline (M). Polycrystalline diamonds feature many small cutting faces that remove lots of material while inflicting shallow scratches. P-type diamonds are well-suited...

Diamond / C-BN Cut-Off Wheels

Posted by Joey Oliva on

MSE Supplies offers both diamond and carbon boron nitride (C-BN) abrasive cut-off wheels from Metkon Technologies. These cut-off wheels work perfectly with Metkon Abrasive Cutting Machines and are compatible with a variety of other abrasive cutting machines. Diamond and C-BN cut-off wheels are used to cut super hard materials since they are the two hardest materials in the world.  Selecting the right cut-off wheel protects your samples from burns and distortion. In addition, it is the best way to save time and money on consumables. Correct cutting produces specimens in perfect condition for the next preparation steps. Diamond is composed purely of carbon, therefore diamond cut-off wheels are not appropriate for...

High Energy Mechanical Milling- Parameters for Optimizing Milling Efficiency

Posted by Chia-yu Chen on

Milling is a method to reduce solid particles to micron size level. It can also be used for mixing, blending and mechanical synthesis. Planetary ball mill is the most commonly used equipment for milling, but it is not easy to reduce particle size to nano size level by planetary ball mill. Various factors can affect milling performance, and it requires optimization. Typically, wet grinding performance can be better than dry grinding. The main factors affecting milling efficiency and performance include the followings: Materials of the milling jars and media. Milling media size Milling time Grinding speed Ball to powder ratio MSE...
