Our products

Product category: Crucibles


Porzellanfabrik Hermsdorf produces since a few years ago crucibles of technical ceramics.

An important product group in this area are the crucible of the classic material Al2O3   C 799.Diese crucibles are used both in metallurgy and in the glass sector.

For rapid temperature changes and high temperature gradients, as they just occur in the field of inductive melting, there are a number of special materials based on fused sillika available.

In addition to solutions for the classic meltings of steel, iron, non-ferrous metals and precious metals such as platinum and gold, we can offer coated crucibles and Y2O3 ceramics for applications in the Titan area.

Our form Building Department, secures together the manufacturing technology of ceramic slip casting a quick and cost-effective implementation of even small quantities and very individual products.

Materials: fused silica, Al2O3, Al2O3 porous, ZTA, AZS, Al2TiO5, Y2O3

Products: crucibles for melting of steel, ferrous and non-ferrous metals, precious metals, titanium

About us

Company details

Over 100 years of tradition in technical ceramics

Porzellanfabrik Hermsdorf is a manufacturer of technical ceramics, which manufactures products for use in many industries using a wide range of ceramic materials and using more diverse production and processing methods.

In addition to the main production line of honeycomb-shaped ceramic elements for environmental protection are wear protection products for apparatus, equipment for melting processes, and electrical insulators for special applications in our production program.

Manufacturer of equipment for exhaust gas and air cleaning technology, chemical plants, casting machines, grinding machines among our customers as well as plant engineering of information transmission technology.

The technical knowledge and skills Porzellanfabrik Hermsdorf is based on over 100 years of tradition of ceramic location Hermsdorf in the field of technical ceramics. 1897 The first milestone was the development of the Delta-bell, a then revolutionary high-voltage insulator concept, set, still the a variety resounding ceramic developments followed.

Our production technologies in conjunction with the variety of available ceramic materials and the possibility of individual shaping, offer great potential to address specific customer needs.

Even the smallest batch sizes through to individual production turn out because of the high wear, temperature and dimensional stability often make economic sense.

In the field of ceramic crucibles besides Al2O3 (C 799) includes special materials like fused sillca ceramics  with extreme thermal shock resistance, ZTA ceramics and Y2O3 ceramics to our production program.
