Installations for Melting, Refining and Related Processes

posted 4 May 2018, 12:11 by Katharine Otter
Over the past two years, Monometer has commissioned a number of installations, including metal melting equipment and related processes.

Furnace equipment has been designed by Monometer to operate over a wide range of temperature and humidity, ranging from -40 deg C in Russian winter conditions to + 40 deg C at 100% humidity in parts of Malaysia and India. In addition to the melting furnace, equipment includes filtration, burner control systems and material feed chargers.

Various innovative projects have incorporated Monometer refining equipment, including iron, copper and lead processes, performing significantly above traditional methods in terms of increased yield, thermal efficiency and furnace productivity.

For example, in copper refining from Birch-Cliff to high purity copper, a 6-tonne capacity Monometer tilting rotary furnace will typically cycle in 4 - 6 hours; 3 tonnes of scrap iron may be melted, alloyed and tapped in under 120 minutes, and 10 tonnes lead battery scrap may be processed through the furnace in under 5 hours. Monometer designs and supply includes the furnace charging system, gas diffusion technology for the refining process, slag systems, oxy-fuel burner system, and exhaust filter complete with settler, as well as the fluxing agents injector, and consumable spare parts.

Monometer offers comprehensive onsite support, ranging from turnkey management or installation support, to short training packages targeting metallurgical training or general furnace performance. All Monometer clients benefit from being kept up to date with the latest equipment software updates and full engineering on site support.
