H.T.C. manufactures advanced technical ceramics made with Zirconium-Yttrium, Zirconium-Magnesium and
Alumina 99% for mechanical applications wherever high anti-wear, high temperature and chemical aggression
resistance is required. The materials used are provided to ensure high performance for high quality
manufacturers. Its specific know-how has allowed the development of formulations and materials with superior
physical properties, meeting product expectations and assuring specific component application performance.
Experience over the years guarantees the production of high quality ISO standards for pressed and injection
moulded ceramic components.
Manufacturing flexibility allows us to assist our customers in developing prototypes and small pre-production
volumes, guaranteeing shorter lead-times. During the “Green Machining” and pressing process, shrinkage is
handled based on the moulding pressure and the CNC turning phase to guarantee a sintered semi-finished
product with high density and dimensional stability. The CNC machines, used for the mechanical finishing,
allows management of tolerances to the closest micron in the finished component in terms of dimensions,
shape and surface. The final check carried out by highly trained laboratory staff, through UV analysis and
precision instruments, guarantees the respect of the specifications and the final quality of the product for
PISTONS - manufactures different shapes and dimensions of alumina pistons, for different types of pumps:
- Pistons for water cleaning systems
- Medium and high pressure pump pistons
- Pistons for dosing, chemical and agricultural pumps
- Circulation pump shafts
- Magnetic and electric pump components
- Components for special applications
VOLUMETRIC PUMP COMPONENTS - produces complete body pump components in high Alumina tenor
with micrometric tolerances of the various components. The use of high resistance material guarantees a
constant capacity of the fluid and increased resistance to chemical attack.
COMPONENTS for WIRE DRAWING & METAL FORMING - range of products for drawing mills made with
zirconia includes Cones, Capstans, Pulleys & Forming rings
ZIRCOX ceramic components have
distinct advantages over carbides &
coated steels. Extreme hardness,
excellent surface finish and chemical
product inertness are all factors that
reduce the level of impact on the die
and improve wire quality. All our
ceramic cones, capstans, pulleys and
draw rings in our Zircox series have
these advantages and suitable for
ferrous & non-ferrous wire drawing
OXYGEN SENSOR FOR ELECTRO-CHEMICAL APPLICATIONS - Hi-Tech Ceramics produces probes made
of Zirconia, specifically stabilized and used as sensors for detecting oxygen levels in the iron and steel industry.
These probes are capable of detecting oxygen levels (in ppm) ranging from high to low levels.
OTHER PARTS & COMPONENTS - produce rings made of Zirconium Oxide used in the manufacture of
hermetically sealed inkpots and a wide range of components in alumina, in particular seal rings, nozzles,
insulators for electrical applications, high vacuum pumps and power supply converters.
