The managing Director at Plansee Metal GmbH, one of the world’s leading in producers of refractory metal products, stands on deck, satisfied with a successful testing and commissioning on his company’s newest cold isostatic press (CIP). This is no ordinary CIP. At this moment, it’s the world’s largest cold isostatic press ever built, with the capability of operating at pressures up to 2,500 atmospheres (36,250 psi).
Material densification is a critical process for many manufacturing and materials processing applications. By using high-pressure techniques, materials such as metals, ceramics, and composites can be compressed to higher densities, resulting in increased mechanical properties and performance.
Quintus Technologies’ High Pressure Processing (HPP) is a natural, scientifically validated technology for food processing. HPP delivers food safety benefits, extends shelf-life, and maintains flavor, freshness, and nutrients. HPP uses ultra-high pressures instead of high temperatures and preservatives to inactivate foodborne pathogens, reduce waste, and deliver natural and nutritious.
