Advanced ceramics for medical devices

The continuously increasing demands on quality and functional safety of medical products in the various global healthcare systems require reliable materials, components and solutions. These must be able to withstand the high demands of everyday clinical practice and meet strict standards. CeramTec advanced ceramics with their unique material properties offer enormous performance for many applications in medical technology.

Our ceramic components are used in

  • Ultrasonic sensors for air bubble detection in dialysis and other intravenous applications
  • Ultrasonic high power transducers for mechanical cell lysis and homogenization within molecular diagnostics or in ultrasonic high frequency therapy
  • Pump components, valves and seals for fluid transfer applications
  • Ultrasonic transducers for surgical precision scalpels (tissue aspiration and fragmentation)
  • Ultrasound sensors for imaging and Doppler fetal monitoring applications
  • Ultrasonic tooth cleaning systems
  • and in many other areas

Non-oxide ceramics - aluminium nitride (AlN)
Ceramic material with very high thermal conductivity

As a technical ceramics material, aluminium nitride (AlN) has the extremely interesting combination of very high thermal conductivity and very good electrical insulation properties.
Aluminium nitride is therefore predestined for use in power and microelectronics and is used, for example, as a circuit carrier (substrate) for semiconductor construction or as a heat sink in LED lighting technology or high-performance electronics.

Aluminium Nitride (AlN) Properties
  • High thermal conductivity
  • High electrical insulation capacity
  • Low thermal expansion
  • Good metallizability

Flow sensors

In ultrasonic flow measurement, a distinction is made between two measuring principles: the Doppler and the entrainment principle. In both cases, a piezoceramic transducer positioned on the pipe wall generates ultrasonic waves that are coupled into the liquid at an angle to the direction of flow. In the Doppler effect, the frequency shift of the ultrasonic waves is evaluated, which are reflected by scattering particles located in the liquid. The greater the flow velocity of the liquid, the greater the frequency shift between the emitted and reflected wave fronts. This measurement method requires only one piezo transducer, which transmits and receives with a time delay. In the tracking principle, two piezoceramic transducers are always used, positioned offset to the direction of flow. These transmit and receive alternately pulsed ultrasonic wave packets against the flow and with the flow. This results in a corresponding superposition of sound propagation velocity and flow velocity. The flow velocity is then proportional to the reciprocal of the transit time difference with and against the flow. The advantage of this measuring method is that the measurement is independent of the sound propagation velocity and thus of the medium. This means that not only liquids but also gases can be measured.
