Zirconia ceramic tip for resectoscope

zirconia ceramic tip

Zirconia Ceramic tip is used in the stem (tube) of the resectoscope during electrosurgical operations. A high-temperature electrical discharge occurs between the electrode and body tissues, so a ceramic tip is installed at the distal end of the tube, it serves as a dielectric that can withstand high temperatures

Zirconia ceramics are superior to other materials in terms of chemical corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and stability, so it is widely used in medical devices where metal or other materials cannot meet the requirements.

Zirconia (ZrO2) Ceramics have the highest toughness and strength at room temperature of all the advanced ceramic materials. At present, it has been widely used in grinding balls, dispersion and grinding media, nozzles, ball valve seats, zirconia molds, micro fan shafts, optical fiber pins, optical fiber sleeves, drawing dies and cutting tools, wear-resistant knives, and other room-temperature resistant Grinding parts and so on. Zirconia is widely used in the fields of the thermal barrier layer, catalyst body, medical treatment, health care, textile, and so on.

This dense advanced ceramics material is usually precision ground using conventional diamond cutters and wheels. Machines used for precision grinding include:

  • Surface grinders
  • CNC milling machines
  • Jig grinders
  • Centerless grinders
  • CNC lathes
  • ID grinders
