TECHNICAL CERAMICS FOR INDUSTRIAL ELECTRIC FURNACES
SIM S.r.l. is a company specialized in the manufacturing of technological products for the high temperatures industry. These products are used in several industries, such as: ceramics, jewelry, dental equipment, foundry and metallurgy, wire drawing and metal annealing, glass, food and petrochemical. Our production is based on the manufacturing if technical ceramics such as pipes, tubes, supporting- resistors plates, pressed, extruded and cast shaped materials. The complete range of our mixtures includes: thermoelectric mixtures with high percentage of alumina (SIM.TDE 70-80-90 % Al2O3) to create shaped materials supporting resistors (electric furnace industry); melted silica (SIM. SiO2) and lightened ceramic (SIM.CAST) mixtures (non ferrous alloy industry); zirconium and zirconium-mullite mixtures (SIM.ZIRK 80 and SIM.ZRK/MUL) (steel mills and nonferrous alloy foundries, petrochemical industries). The production run is carried out on three different processing types: extrusion (pipes and tubes), pressing (plates, hollow tiles, circular sectors) and casting (molded parts of any shapes non-mechanically feasible). Innovative is also the under-vacuum casting department by means of de-pressurized tanks, to make mixtures in complete absence of air and in close porosity (metallurgy, foundry and petrochemical industries).
