New Spray Drying Tower at PI Ceramic

Material Preparation with Spray Drying

Producing a compressible granulate is an important step in material preparation, because the granulate is the basic material for the piezo components made by pressing technology. For producing  this granulate in an even better quality and at larger quantities, PI Ceramic now put a new spray drying tower into operation. 

This spay drying tower has a significantly larger volume than the previous spray drying installation. Due to this fact, the evaporation performance is increased and the material throughput during spray drying is 3 to 4 times higher. The spray drying process reaches a capacity of approx. 1000 kg/day. In addition, the flowability of the granulate is increased considerably, which in turn simplifies the further processing to pressing compacts.

Vertical Integration

PI Ceramic uses a deep vertical integration that starts already with the processing of carefully selected raw materials. All materials are developed and processed in-house, before they are transformed in individual production lines into high-quality piezo components, piezo actuators, and, at a higher integration level, into sensor components, for example.
