was established in the year 1973 by a dynamic technocrat entrepreneur
Mr. R. Thiyagarajan to pioneer the manufacture of high quality
vacuum systems, furnaces and accessories in India and save the
country valuable foreign exchange otherwise spent on expensive
became the first Indian company to manufacture the THERMOVAC Chamber
to test ARYABHATTA Satellite in 1974 for Indian Space Research
Organization (ISRO) then called The Indian Satellite Project.
The Thermovac Chamber was commissioned at Bangalore. The pioneering
effort of Microtorr in commissioning this project can be fathomed
from the fact that no readymade technology was available in India
then and the only vague specifications were provided to commence
the work. Through sheer persistence and extensive research Microtorr
was able to overcome hurdles of enormous magnitude and the successful
launch of "ARYABHATTA" is now an important landmark
in India's Scientific History.
accomplishment of this challenging task clubbed with the satisfaction
and appreciation expressed by such important a customer organization,
boasted the morale and confidence at Microtorr. Later in the year
1984 Microtorr was entrusted with the complex responsibility of
transplanting the entire thermo vacuum facility at ISRO from Peenya
to New Space Application Centre Complex in Kodihalli, Bangalore.
The Responsibility was not merely limited to transplanting the
system but also to argument its capabilities by incorporating
turbo molecular/Cryo pumps, installing liquid nitrogen vessels
and liquid nitrogen and nitrogen vapour lines. The work was completed
in a record time with complete customer satisfaction. In 1985-86
another Thermovac Chamber with a unique Cryo Panel design was
commissioned at the Liquid Propulsion Systems Centre (LPSE) to
test space sub-assemblies.
Engineering and technological challenges, innovating designs,
working in close coordinated teams and maintaining positive attitude
at all times is a way of life at Microtorr which propelled it
into a set of few companies which have access to and experience
with exclusive technology in vacuum systems and furnaces. M/s.
Leybold of Germany when contracted to manufacture and supply 80kg
Twin Chamber Copper Melting Furnace to produce oxygen free high
purity electronic grade copper for a prestigious Indian Research
Organization selected Microtorr as its Indian partner to manufacture
major components. Microtorr interacted with Leybolds for advance
fabrication technology and successfully manufactured and supplied
the required components under the partnership contract by meeting
their stringent quality and test specifications.
have several first time projects in India to its credit in the
field of Vacuum Systems and furnaces. A few among them are;
of Electron beam Welding Chamber - a square chamber largest
ever built in India weighing more than 25 tons.
Fabrication and Installation of Vacuum Brazing Furnace with
operating temperatures of 625 Deg C to a maximum of 800 Deg
C and zone uniformity of +/- 3 Deg C for Vacuum Brazing of
Aluminum Heat Exchangers in Aviation Industry. This know-how
is available with few companies in the world. The product
was well accepted and several exchangers were supplied with
98% success rate.
Vacuum High Temperature Sintering Furnace with graphite heating
elements capable of operating at temperature of 1450 Deg C
was designed and supplied to R&D of a large public sector
engineering company. This furnace is now in use for several
years to manufacture Tungsten Graphite electrical contacts.
designed to anneal 3000 aneroids in a single batch. Aneroids
are used in high altitude weather balloons sent up by meteorologists.
