PRESSURE & TEMPERATURE SENSOR COMPONENTS
CoorsTek provides components for ultra-sensitive pressure and temperature sensors used in all kinds of vehicle and equipment sensors for fuel, oil, water, and more — performing across challenging environments and temperature ranges.
Why Ceramic Sensor Components?
Technical ceramic materials combine high strength, thermal stability, and corrosion resistance — a great fit with the challenging environments of many sensors. CoorsTek engineers advanced ceramics to fit the application-specific needs of your sensor, from high-purity aluminas to hybrid ceramics and ceramic membranes.
CoorsTek high-purity alumina components deliver the combination of robust mechanical strength, thermal stability, and corrosion resistance for versatile, cost-effective sensor performance.
CoorsTek zirconia-toughened alumina (ZTA) enhances long-term toughness and durability for severe-service sensor applications.
CoorsTek Yttria Fully-Stablized Zirconia (YTZP) combines robust mechanical and thermal performance with unique ion conducting properties, useful, for example, in determining oxygen content in exhaust gases.
DuraSense™ Alumina Toughened Zirconia
Exclusive DuraSense Alumina Toughened Zirconia (ATZ) is a hybrid ceramic engineered to combine the best of zirconia and alumina properties for the optimal balance of sensor performance and long-term durability.
