At Sam Dong, we are a supplier of high-quality magnetic wire products and services. One of our core product specializations is magnesium diboride (MgB2) superconducting wire, a cost-effective and easy-to-fabricate material suitable for use in a wide range of engineering applications.
Our MgB2 Superconducting Wire
MgB2 is often used for the manufacture of high-temperature wire. The process involves mixing and heating fine magnesium and boron powders at or around 600° F (the melting point of pure magnesium). The end result is a material that can withstand higher operating temperatures and cryocooling temperatures. Some of the key characteristics of MgB2 wire include:
- Operating temperature range of 15K to 30K
- Suitability for high magnetic fields
- Good performance to price ratio
It is primarily used to reduce costs in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) background coils and other similar components.
At Sam Dong, we aim to meet the highest quality standards and strictest customer specifications, a commitment reflected by our maintenance of ISO 9001, IATF 16949, and UL certifications. This dedication demonstrates itself in the manufacture of all our wire products, including our MgB2 superconducting wire. These products serve as an effective and efficient alternative to other commercially available superconducting materials for a wide range of industrial applications.
Industrial Applications of MgB2 Superconducting Wire
MgB2 superconducting wire plays a critical role in a variety of magnetics applications. It demonstrates superior performance without sacrificing cost-efficiency. Some examples of the industries and engineered products in which the material is often employed include:
- The energy generation industry: for generators, transformers, and turbines
- The high-energy physics industry: for particle accelerators and nuclear fusion power systems
- The medical industry: for MRI and NMR systems
- The transportation industry: for Maglev (i.e., magnetic levitation) systems
Contact the Experts at Sam Dong for Your MgB2 Superconducting Wire Needs
If you need MgB2 superconducting wire, turn to the experts at Sam Dong. We have supplied high-quality conductive products—including MgB2 superconductive wire—to customers across the globe for over 40 years. While we maintain facilities in the United States, South Korea, and Poland to distribute wires to customers in North and South America, Asia, Oceania, and Europe, our superconducting wires are strictly sold out of our South Korean location.
