PRODUCTION FACILITIES

Yayakent Facility was established in 1999 in Izmir - Bergama region; The 12.000 m2 facility built  on an open area of 35.000 m2 is currently  producing around 200.000/ mt of crushed / screened perlite per year. Yayakent facility, designed with American Technology, is an ultra modern plant; During production, the waste materials are collected in a dust collecting unit via gravity method which enables to produce high and consistent quality  of crushed / screened perlite ore. 
 
Besides cryogenic  grade  perlite ore, used for LNG and ColdBox projects,  we also produce  in our facility  high volumes of crushed / screened perlite  suitable for construction, agriculture, foundry casting and filtration industries. 
 
Between 2011- 2012, all the processing equipment, multi-frequency screens, air separators and automatic packing systems of our facility were fully renewed. Taking in consideration the growth of the  micronized perlite market  on short  and medium  term,  Diperlit also invested in new crushing / screening systems and air separators for production of 0,10 - 0,30 mm, 0,10 - 0.40 mm, 0,20 - 0.50 mm, 0,30 - 0,60 mm perlite. Another purpose of this investment was to meet the fast growing global demand for "closed cell" perlite, produced in new technology electrical furnaces   
 
All operational process of this facility is carried out in accordance with ISO 9001 standards. "All of our products are packed  with an accurate weighing system of our packing unit, which is the top step of the production line, in 1100 - 1300 kg of big bags or in 25 - 50 kg of kraft bags, based on the requirement of our customers, and stored in an indoor storage area, to be protected from environmental humidity and contamination."  
 
We made significant investments in our laboratory systems as well in order, to be able offer high quality service to our customers. Combined water and moisture analysis, as well as sieve analysis, mechanical resistance tests, laboratory type expansion tests and all other required analyses are performed regularly by our qualified laborants and chemists, in line with PI and ASTM standards.
 
All the exports of the company, either in bulk or in big bags, ranging  in lots between 3000 - 25000 DWCC, are organized from Port of Dikili, operated by IPM Group and located at 42 km distance from our facilities. 20’ container shipments are arranged from Izmir and Aliaga ports and delivered worldwide, either directly or with minimum transhipment.
 
 
The capacity of our Maruflar Facility was increased by 80.000 mt/shift with the investment we made in 2012 and the facility was renovated to produce different types of perlite ores. In this facility, we produce high quality micronized perlite products by multi-frequency screening systems, high technology crushers and air separators. The products are packed in 25-50 kg bags and bigbags with a capacity up to 1300 kgs, by using the automatic  packaging system. 
 
The production activities at our Maruflar facility, where we mainly produce filtration perlite ore due to its close location  to the filtration perlite reserves, are carried out in accordance with ISO 9001 Standards, since 01.01.2014.  Crushed and  filtered perlite ore for different  purposes of use  are being produced in this modern facility. 
 
To be able to offer our customers high quality service, we made major investments on our laboratory systems.  Combined humidity and moisture analysis, as well as sieve analysis, mechanical resistance tests, laboratory type expansion tests and all other required analyses are performed regularly by our qualified laborants and chemists, in line with PI and ASTM standards.
 
All the exports of the company, either in bulk or in big bags, ranging  in lots between 3000 - 25000 DWCC, are organized from Port of Dikili, operated by IPM Group and located at 47 km distance from our facilities. 20’ container shipments are arranged from Izmir and Aliaga ports and delivered worldwide, either directly or with minimum transhipment.
