The global silicon nitride ceramic tube market is expected to portray significant growth in forthcoming period. Silicon nitride is a thermodynamically inert compound of elements silicon and nitrogen with a high melting point. Silicon nitride is denoted by Si3N4 with a white appearance. Right from chemical industry and electronics engineering to soil analysis and water heating, ceramic tubes are finding a host of applications and being fulfilled in myriad shapes and designs.
Miniaturized circuit breakers and measurement technology has innumerable recountable experiences with ceramic tubes as seen in traffic signal LED’s and most prolific being in semiconductor electronics. Of late nanotechnology is under the camera eye for meeting dimension standards and may require ceramics to scale down to those entities.
When silicon is heated to a temperature between 13000 C to 14000 C under the influence of nitrogen, this chemical reaction gives rise to silicon nitride. Driving factor towards growth of silicon nitride ceramic tube market are its superior toughness and higher operating temperatures coupled with high efficiency which have been effective in replacing metals with ceramics. Being an intermediate goal though not realizing the goal of ceramic engine, ceramics have made the cut by being utilized in engine components, bearings and cutting tools.
High creep resistance justifying maximum operating temperatures and loads with low thermal expansion and high resistance to oxidation vis three agents namely air, oxygen and carbon dioxide positions silicon nitride among the strongest of metals majorly driving growth of silicon nitride ceramic tube industry.
Ceramic tubes are found useful in construction of passive components such as resistors exhibiting higher resistance and reliability. Thus, it is the intrinsic use of ceramics in passive components that gives high quality even when mass produced. The automotive industry is right at the top of industries and is witness to one constant player i.e. ceramics and glass industries. Three main types of silicon nitride exist namely reaction bonded silicon nitride (RBSN), hot pressed silicon nitride (HSPN) and silicon sintered nitride (SSN).
