Two medium frequency induction furnaces of the latest design are the cornerstones of our production process.
Quality high-grade low residual steel scrap from specific sources is melted in these electric furnaces. After chemical analysis of the melt has been undertaken, appropiate alloying materials are added to ensure a constant product quality.
During the granulation that follows, the molten steel is poured into a high-pressure water jet. The high pressure of the water jet atomises the molten steel into small globules which immediately solidify and then cool off in a water basin.
Annually increasing tonnage of granules are manufactured in this way. Subsequently, the raw granules are dried, cleaned, screened into various sizes and inspected for the roundness and denseness of the granules. The high wear resistant and tough steel blasting shot is then processed in accordance with the customer's wishes, is packaged and prepared for dispatch, or stored..

A leading "Made in Germany“ quality product. The company's organisation is well structured and its manufacturing operation is well constructed, as is evidenced by the DIN 9002 certification (obtained first in 1998) and by regular internal and external audits.
We take pride in having more than 30 years of experience in this production process, which is theoretically straightforward. The aim of the process is a constant, uniform product quality. We are able to ensure this because we manufacture only at our site in Filderstadt-Plattenhardt.
