Highly specialized grades of ceramics in a variety of shapes and sizes

McDanel's legacy of innovative design and engineering for thermocouples result in long-lasting products that are contaminant-free and impervious to the harshest environments.


The McDanel Difference


Components used in semiconductor manufacturing require precision due to the complexity of assemblies and fixtures needed.  McDanel has a long history of supplying critical components that meet customers’ demanding specifications.

The Ultimate in Precision


Reliable thermal performance is necessary for parts used in high temperature wafer processing furnaces.  McDanel ceramics have been used as critical components in applications in wafer processing and CVD furnaces.

High performing & Heat Resistant


McDanel 99.8% alumina is formulated to achieve the demanding requirements of components used in wafer diffusion furnaces where chemical inertness and corrosion resistance are essential.

Chemically inert & noncorrosive

McDanel is different than other industry suppliers in that their customer service is responsive and creates positive solutions. We can count on McDanel to perform professionally and support our needs.
