Advanced Alumina Ceramic Finds Niche in Oncology Equipment
Thanks to its excellent dielectric properties and a reliable surface finish, a high-quality alumina ceramic from Morgan Advanced Materials is now being successfully used in radiotherapy equipment for oncology treatment.
Deranox 970 is a high-density, non-porous and vacuum-tight material with a 97 per cent Al2O3 (aluminium oxide) content, which provides excellent electrical insulation. It is frequently used in high-vacuum systems, in laser and microscope applications and as an insulator in medical and scientific equipment, and has now been specified as the sealing element for RF windows in radiotherapy equipment.
