Custom Steel Fabrication


Natural clay lies in great quantiles within Mother Earth. The Early man realized that clay implements, baked in a fire, transformed to a more glass-like structure. That transformation added strength allowing progression development of ceramics into vital tools and artwork that define the great tribe's era of growth.

Ceramics has since 9000BC been intrinsic in the development of civilization is and remains a testament to man's innovation. Early on the ceramic artform and the need for more critical day to day implements progressed into the production of glassware, articles that could be sold or traded.

Forward to Ceramic production as to the year 2018 has and continues to exponentially develop into complex support systems with branch technology that supports and enhances our lives on a continuous basis’s.

Consider the daily complexity of our lives and those everyday gadgets that we have come to depend on, phones, computers, advanced electronics that also provide an element of control that defines our present civilization.

Factor in the broader impact on the economy and multipliers such as computers, aviation, housing, mining and housing materials, aviation, vehicles, equipment manufacturing, armaments, space travel, medical equipment, including knee and hip replacement components the list goes on and on.

For the last 34 years, CTI has focused on the redesign and improved performance of mineral processing equipment such as coal, phosphate, and potash.

CTI specializes in utilizing a more efficient Alumna Oxide as a liner to extend process equipment life and improve performance cost of mineral processing.

We specialize in the design and fabrications application best defined by ceramic chart ranging from Porcelain, through Alumina, Zirconia, Carbides, and Nitrides.


From that five groups falling under Oxides and Non-Oxides Ceramic variations can be fine-tuned to address desired results to improved hardness, heat, and chemical resistance. From the five groups, breaks into 28 different ceramic compounds that can be refined to meet the design and performance projected to build superior fabrications.

However, you will have a higher cost of production when you move from Aluminas to Zirconia, Carbides, and Nitrides. We can supply complex fabrications such as nozzles and cones, including machine component.

Due to cost and performance, we have concentrated our fabrication and production utilizing 92% Alumna engineered liners.

Alumna Oxide starts as mined borax and then processed into calcined alumna. Crystals are then combined with additives such as silica, compressed formed in a green state, fired at 2200 degrees that promote crystal growth. That results in product hardness of 9.5 vs.10 diamond hardness on Mohs Hardness Scale.

The crystal growth results in a material that is inert or impermeable resulting in unique characteristics that are hard and will absorb impact when adequately designed and applied, process minerals that are of a sticky nature, such as wet concrete that will not build up.


Ceramic Technology Inc. has thirty-four years of business expansion and benchmarks an innovative progression and focus on improved maintenance procedure, including patents on mineral process equipment.

We were awarded a registered trademark in September 2014, The CTI-X7® Ceramic Process Equipment.

The CTI-X7® Static Screen redefines screen feed point technology, counter to the radius sieve bend and drop-box standard of the last 50 years.

The X-7® Static Screen is a magnetite recovery screen that redirects fines including magnetite at -1.5 MM to your fine material circuits including mag recovery. Screening through the minus 1.5 MM results in the drain and rinse improved performance as to final spray washing and enhanced screening on flat cyclone circuit screens.

We also see improved magnetite recovery with many coal operations, reporting magnetite loss at less than .5 lbs. Per raw ton.


The CTI-X7®protection screens are scaled down and operate much as the X-7® Static Screen and sizes are interchangeable, results maintenance cost is minimal especially considering the small footprint and the ability for your operators to visual check as to oversize concentrations.

The CTI X-7® Circuit Protection Screen has also been a very consistent performer as to sizing out oversize particles in fine coal circuits such as feed to the classifier, microcells, and thickener underflow protection.

Problems associated with the misplaced material can adversely affect your plant performance leading to lost coal and forced emergency plant shutdowns.

We warranty all our X-7®Mineral Processing Equipment and Maintenance Equipment Parts.

We are a class-A certified mineral equipment contract manufacturer. The CTI-X7® Brand is respected throughout the mining industry on the North American Continent and is known as the best performer to improve operational performance.

At CTI, we excel at designs to meet the customer needs, and our engineers will coordinate proper selection, location including flowcharts to install the CTI X-7 units. We look forward to being of service to you and your company.
