  • Quartz or Silica Ramming Mass, with different sizes


A new expansion project will be finalized soon, and the following products will be produced:

  • Hollow section production line
  • The Angle Iron production line
  • U-Channel production line
  • Flat iron production line


Technology utilization

Recent technology with computerized control systems, Programming Logical Control (PLC), is used for the production of the reinforcement bar. We especially use the following technology:

  • Thermomechanical treatment plant for increasing the ribbed bar's strength
  • installing a substation of an automatic power factor corrector with a harmonizer. It is used for power stabilization.
  • Using an alternate current motor controlled by a programming logical control (PLC) system has a great advantage in proper stability and utilization of power.
  • Using an automatic rake type cooling bed with a twin channel bar delivery system,
  • Using an automatic finished product packing system

Installation of substation

At present, the company has the following eight transformers with a total capacity of 18,100 kva.

  • Three 3500kva units
  • Three 2000 kVA units
  • One is 1600kva.

After the installation of a substation with a capacity of 50,000 kva, the company uses 31,850 kva and the remaining will be used after the installation of an additional production line in one year.
