We are thrilled to announce that Elmelin will be exhibiting at the Battery Show Europe 2020 in Stuttgart, Germany from October 15-17, 2020.
Our capabilities and products are a fantastic fit for this sector, we have been involved in projects used in a range of battery applications. We’re particularly excited to be doing innovative work in the automotive industry, helping leading manufacturers devise safer solutions that protect those travelling in electric cars. …
Elmelin specialises in an innovative range of microporous high-temperature insulation materials that are used in a wide range of applications – including aircraft, military vehicles, nuclear power plants and furnaces. These materials are designed to give superior performance in all conditions. …
Levels of conductivity are the main difference between conductors, semiconductors and insulators. Conductors display high conductivity, which means they allow energy, such as electricity, heat or sound, to easily flow through them. Whereas semiconductors allow a moderate flow and insulators exhibit low conductivity. …
There are over 30 different types of mica in the mica group of minerals. However, there are a few that have a very common rate of occurrence – making up a high percentage of minerals in the Earth’s rocks. Muscovite and phlogopite mica are among the most commonly occurring micas.
As foundries continue to evolve, new technology and safety measures are rapidly being adopted. For some time, insulation has been at the heart of the evolution of this technology – with mica-based insulation materials playing an essential role in supporting the foundry processes.
This story could be titled the evolution from the industrial revolution to the CNC machine age. Elmelin has been around long enough and has evolved enough times to have processes from both. Our core competence is one of reinvention. At its heart is mica.
There have been many reports recently of a chronic skills shortage in both manufacturing and engineering. It’s essential that young adults going into further education are aware of their many options. Particularly if they are skilled problem-solvers.
As part of my studies at the Higher Technical Federal Training and Research Institute in Ferlach, Austria, I was expected to complete 4 weeks of practical work experience training during the school holidays.
Cement and glass manufacturing are continuous process industries that require advanced and thermal solutions to optimise their output. Both manufacturing sectors depend on heat for processing. This means they depend on controlling this heat to ensure consistency and quality in their end-products. Thermal solutions for continuous processes centre on furnace lining materials. These include mica and microporous insulation.
