Graphite Materials is a manufacturing company for graphite components and a system supplier for high-temperature applications, one area of specialisation is servicing heating chambers for vacuum and inert-gas furnaces.
The services performed depend on customer requirements and can involve an extensive parts service with graphite, CFC and insulation components, in-house component development and the complete overhaul of chambers. The company Graphite Materials was founded in 2000 in Zirndorf near Nuremberg by Dr. Rolf Terjung (D.Eng.) with the motto, “from the idea to the finished component”.
Servicing the heating chambers involves dismantling and cleaning them in a fully equipped workshop and replacing defective parts. Important components, such as the furnace insulation and heating system, are over-hauled and, if necessary, optimised.
In addition to servicing heating chambers, engineering services are becoming an increasingly important area. For example, improving energy efficiency in view of higher energy prices plays a significant role and involves a thermal simulation based on the finite-elements method (FEM).
Other areas of work involve the independent development and manufacture of components for gas-flow control systems, such as fan wheels and gas-flow plates, or CFC or hybrid charging devices, as well as their further development in order to meet increasing productivity and quality requirements.
