HIP cylinders

Cylinders and components for hot isostatic pressing (HIP)

During hot isostatic pressing (HIP), sintering, joining, and compression take place under temperatures of up to approx. 1450°C and gas pressures of up to 200 MPa. The system components inside the pressure vessel must be large and heat-resistant. They must also be able to withstand rapid changes in temperature. This is where our components made of molybdenum, ML, or TZM are most suitable: heating assemblies, support cylinders, and insulation cylinders for HIP furnaces as well as components for gas supply and rapid cooling.

Your advantages at a glance:

  • Tailor-made multilayer designs

  • High strengths

  • Virtually gas-tight design

  • Excellent creep resistance

  • Long service life

Optimum material for high heat resistance

Molybdenum and tungsten are refractory metals and thus are very heat-resistant. Due to their special physical properties, molybdenum and tungsten are ideally suited as components for furnace construction.

When particular loads are required, we strengthen the microstructure of pure molybdenum with TZM – titanium and zirconium. TZM has better creep resistance, a higher recrystallization temperature, and higher heat resistance than pure molybdenum. A Mo-Ti solid solution and Ti-Zr carbides ensure optimal strengths at temperatures up to 1400°C.
