Lethiguel is a French company founded in 1976 and located in Lyon, France. They specialize in providing Jet Cooling and electrical heating solutions for the non-ferrous metal industry, from producing electrical immersion heaters to designing and producing different types of electrical-powered holding furnaces. The immersion heating and Jet Cooling technologies make it possible to reduce the energy consumption while increasing production capacity, product quality, and therefore final profit.

Lethiguel’s core technology: electrical immersion heaters

The company’s heaters are composed of 2 perfectly tested products: A Si3N4 (Silicon Nitride) and a high watt density electrical heating resistance. The electrical resistances are compacted inside the ceramic tube. The absence of air between the electrical heating wires and the surface of the ceramic tube ensures a highly efficient and fast thermal transfer directly into the aluminum.

Jet Cooling for die casting industry

Jet Cooling can be used to solve most of thermal related issues in non-ferrous die casting. By using high pressurized cooling water to cool the core pins, then purge the circuits with air. Finally, a leak test can be performed to ensure that there is no leakage.

100% acquisition of Midland Technologies in United States

Midland technologies will be the key to forge Lethiguel’s presence in the U.S, while benefitting from the French group’s global sales and distribution channels worldwide.
