Sunrock Ceramics Co., LLC, a high-alumina kiln furniture manufacturer that began operations in early 2006, recently announced the commencement of another 1700°C periodic kiln that will provide the throughput needed to meet the growing demand for the company’s products. The newly commissioned gas kiln will also be used for toll firing, along with the company’s existing 1700°C electric kilns.

“The rapid growth in demand that Sunrock is seeing for its kiln furniture from the technical ceramics industry, and the positive reaction from powdered metal parts manufacturers for our alumina pusher plates, has facilitated this investment in additional kiln capacity,” said Doug Thurman, president. “Additionally, to ensure we can continue to meet demand growth, we also acquired an identical second gas kiln so that we are ready to bring even more capacity on line very quickly and economically.”
