PTI Announces Major Expansion Including Additional HIP Unit at Concord, Ohio Facility

HIP Unit #11

Pressure Technology, Inc. (PTI), a leading provider of hot isostatic pressing services, announced that the company has recently completed a major expansion of their processing facility located in Concord Township, Ohio. An integral part of the expansion was the installation of an additional hot isostatic press, bringing the company's total to ten units. Designed to accommodate the growth of its services, the building expansion and additional processing capability will position the company to meet current and future sales growth.

"The expansion is mainly in direct response to our expanding customer base in the Mid-West region," said David Bowles, General Manager of PTI. "The region is also home to major research facilities and production plants that are developing additive manufacturing processes which will continue to increase the demand for our hot isostatic pressing services", he added.

The expansion has added 7,000 sq. ft. of production floor space for staging incoming customer products prior to processing and the new HIP unit, bringing the total to over 23,000 sq. ft. for the entire facility. The building expansion and additional unit will benefit PTI’s customers by providing better lead times and additional HIP capacity. Adding to the facilities overall processing capabilities, the new unit has an overall working length of 108" and a diameter of 30". The new unit matches the capabilities of an existing unit, also located at the Ohio facility.

The new unit can achieve a maximum temperature of 2,450° F and a maximum pressure of 25,000 PSI and is designed to accommodate parts for the aerospace, biomedical, industrial, power generation and other industries.

In addition, the capacity afforded by this new unit will help fulfill the increased demand for our services and enhance our ability to meet our customer's turnaround needs."

The new unit can achieve a maximum temperature of 2450° F and a maximum pressure of 25,000 PSI and is designed to accommodate parts for the aerospace, biomedical, industrial and power generation industries.

PTI Ohio Facility Meets Increasing HIPping Demand With Addition of Eighth Unit

Pressure Technology, Inc. (PTI), a provider of hot isostatic pressing services, announced that the company has increased HIPping capacity by adding an eighth HIP unit to their facility in Concord Township, Ohio. "The installation of the hot isostatic pressing unit was completed during April 2009 and is now ready for customer production runs," said Richard Walker, Plant Manager of PTI Ohio. "Our high level of service, responsiveness and competitive pricing has led to significantly increased market demand for our hot isostatic pressing services in the Midwest market. The additional capacity afforded by this new unit will help fulfill the increased demand and enhance our ability to meet our customer's turnaround needs."

The new unit can achieve a maximum temperature of 2450° F and a maximum pressure of 25,000 PSI. The eigth unit is identical to three other Ohio units with a 30" working diameter designed to accommodate parts for the land based turbine and aerospace industries.

PTI Ohio Facility Meets Increasing HIPping Demand With Addition of Seventh Unit

Pressure Technology, Inc. (PTI), a provider of hot isostatic pressing services, announced today that the company has increased HIPping capacity by adding an seventh HIP unit to their 12,000 square foot facility in Concord Township, Ohio. "The installation of the hot isostatic pressing unit was completed during the fourth quarter of 2007 and is now fully operational," said Richard Walker, Plant Manager of PTI Ohio. "We're responding to the consistent increasing demand in this marketplace."

The new unit can achieve a maximum temperature of 2450° F and a maximum pressure of 25,000 PSI. The unit is identical to two other Ohio units with a 30" working diameter designed to accommodate parts for the land based turbine and aerospace industries. PTI plans to continue expansion to meet market demand for hot isostatic pressing services by adding an eigth HIP unit during the second quarter of 2009.

Pressure Technology Adds Two New HIPping Units in Ohio Facility

Pressure Technology, Inc. (PTI) the Warminster, PA-based hot isostatic pressing company, has added two new hot isostatic pressing units to increase capacity at the company's 12,000 sq. ft. HIP facility in Concord Township, OH. The two newest units now give Pressure Technology six total hot isostatic pressing units, three of which are housed in the Ohio facility. "The continued expansion of HIP capabilities at our Ohio facility allows us to meet the demand for service in the Midwest and also allows Pressure Technology to better serve our clients in that region," said Richard Walker, Plant Manager of PTI.

The two new units are both large diameter chambers, accommodating larger parts such as turbines, powder billets and structural parts used in the aerospace industry. Both new HIPping units can achieve a maximum temperature of 2450° F and a maximum pressure of 25,000 PSI.

Pressure Technology Opens New HIP Facility Near Cleveland

Pressure Technology, Inc. the Warminster, PA-based Hot Isostatic Pressing Company, has opened a 12,000 sq. ft. HIP facility in Concord Township, OH, a location approximately 20 minutes east of Cleveland. The new plant houses a 16" diameter unit with plans for future expansion. David Bowles, PTI's General Manager, in announcing the opening of the Ohio operation, stated that "this new facility will better serve our present Ohio area customer base with lower shipping costs and faster turnaround. In addition, it will also enable us to open new markets in other nearby states."

Pressure Technology Adds New Hot Isostatic Pressing Unit, Doubles Production Capacity

With the installation of its newest processing unit, Pressure Technology, Inc. has doubled the company's capacity for its hot isostatic pressing (HIP) service, improved processing efficiency and shortened turnaround time. PTI now has four units, ranging in size from a development unit to large production units. The latest addition has the following specifications:

Diameter Length Maximum Temp. Maximum Pressure Furnace Type
30"
(760 mm)
70"
(1780 mm)
2450° F
(1340° C)
25,000 PSI
(170 MPa)
Molybdenum
Diameter 30"
(760 mm)
Length 70"
(1780 mm)
Maximum Temp. 2450° F
(1340° C)
Maximum Pressure 25,000 PSI
(170 MPa)
Furnace Type Molybdenum

Addition of the new HIP unit, which was designed and built by PTI, also increases the company's processing capabilities and paves the way for expansion into new market areas. With a chamber diameter of 30" and 70" length, the unit is now the largest unit on PTI's production floor. The large size means that PTI can accommodate larger parts, such as land-based turbine blades, powder billets and structural parts for aerospace. The unit can also process a larger quantity of materials in a single cycle, thereby permitting more cost-effective processing.

In addition to its large size, the unit also has a high pressure capability of 25,000 psi (170 MPa) and a temperature operating range up to 2450° F (1340°C). The high pressure capability, combined with the larger size, presents new opportunities for design engineers and also enables PTI to expand services for casting densification, diffusion bonding, HIP brazing, and powder consolidation.
