These processes use low and high intensity dispersers, hydrocyclones, sieves, and magnetic traps. Batching is carefully performed according to the weight and volume of the item.

Filter Pressing

Process in which high pressure is used to remove water from the conveyor belt to obtain flat plates with a consistent material density. Work pressure up to 200 PSI.

De-airing & Extrusion Equipment

Flat plates are de-aired in a vacuum pug mill. Final products are extruded with optimum compaction and homogeneity. Pug mill hole diameter up to 13”.

Wet & Dry Turning

Horizontal and vertical hydraulic lathes are available for shaping cylindrical pieces up to 1.2 meters long. Lathes are automatically controlled for the optimal sequencing of operations. Tungsten carbide tools with high wear resistance are used.

Pressing Process

A heated die is pushed while turning the extruded item inside a gypsum mold. Optional threading is available.

Drying & Firing Kiln

Gas fired dryers and kilns are suitable for water removal and ware sintering. Shuttle and tunnel kilns are available for temperatures up to 1300°C. Dryers support temperatures of up to 140°C.

Coating Process

Process in which a surface glass coating is applied on the item.
