CERadvance moving to Pretoria

CERadvance's long-awaited move to Silvertondale, Pretoria has finally begun. During the month of March production schedules and customer communications may be affected, but the management team commits itself to ensuring a smooth relocation without any upsets in production as far as possible.

CERadvance relocating: March 2017

After 18 years in Jet Park, Boksburg north, CERadvance is proud to announce that we will finally be relocating to Pretoria. The final touches are being put to a 1700 m2 factory in Silvertondale and the move will gradually start in the next month or so.

 

Not only will the new factory provide with space for future growth opportunities, but it will also allow the optimization of the process layout and in the medium term the implementation of renewable engery generation.

 

Now on! CERadvance stand C20, Hall 7 Electra Mining Africa 2016

Apart from a few new and exiting materials on show, the same dedicated and experienced team will present locally manufactured ceramics for industrial, minerals processing and refractory applications.

Visit us from 12 to 16 September 2016 in Hall 7, Stand C 20. 

CERadvance introduces new product line: Ceramic centering and Welding pins.

Traditionally imported, ceramic centering and welding pins have been problematic to implement due to high costs and long delivery times by overseas manufacturers. Manufacturing the oxide ceramic parts in South Africa, CERadvance can now supply a wide range of Zirconia and Alumina pins at short lead times to the semi-automated and automated manufacturing industries. Zirconia, Alumina ( 99.5% ) and Silicon Carbide can be manufactured locally.

Medupi Jr. goes on line.

Since the sintering cycle of oxide ceramics typically spans over multiple days (and nights), continuous power supply is absolutely essential.

It is therefore pivotal for any ceramic factory  to have back-up power generation capacity.

CERadvance has recently acquired a back-up generator to do just that.  Nicknamed "Medupi Jr." ,  this  250 KVA Backup generator with automatic transfer switch control is part of the medium term strategy to maintain service levels to the company's growing customer base.

Refractories and boiler tube ferrules installation by CERadvance

CERadvance has completed a second very successful boiler  tube-sheet lining in a gas-fired boiler in Pretoria. Unwanted shut-downs caused by tube leaks were a common occurence before CERadvance designed and installed the hexagonal monolithic boiler tube ferrules to protect the tube sheet welding areas from fatigue due to thermal cycling and straining.
