Services

I.               CONSULTANCY 

Monometer provides a world class centre of excellence for furnace equipment - particularly Rotary furnaces for ferrous and non-ferrous foundries and Hydraulic tilting reverberatory furnaces for aluminium bulk melting and alloying. We offer a full range of Crucible and chamber Heat treatment furnaces. Monometer produces equipment to exceed customer expectations and provides Furnace Designs that take account environmental considerations. 


II.             FURNACE DESIGN AND MANUFACTURE

In addition to a general installation service we offer a specialised process development service. For example, we have recently developed a smelting process for 95% to 100% recovery of metal from solder ashes and dross, and our copper refining furnaces operate with the latest integral lancing technology to attain 99.97% copper purity from readily available copper scrap. (recovery percentages include recovery from bag house dust and furnace slag).


III.     EXPERIENCE

With experience of over 50 years and over 700 metal melting furnace installations, and with our dedicated and personal approach to our clients we ensure that we provide the most suitable furnace for any refining, smelting or general melting and alloying requirement.


IV.    COMPETITIVE EDGE

With fabrication facilities around the globe, our build time of typically 12 to 16 weeks is competitive, and our fabrication is competitively priced.


V.    SERVICE

In addition to a general installation service we offer a specialised process development service. For example, we have recently developed a smelting process for 95% to 100% recovery of metal from solder ashes and dross, and our copper refining furnaces operate with the latest integral lancing technology to attain 99.97% copper purity from readily available copper scrap. (recovery percentages include recovery from bag house dust and furnace slag).


VI.    ESTABLISHED TECHNOLOGY

We have a long history of furnace supply for iron, aluminium, lead and copper melting, including short body rotary furnaces for the smelting of lead acid batteries and copper drosses, attaining 70% to 85% yield from typical battery pastes and less than 1% metal losses for iron melting. This enables our clients to reclaim metal from dross, ash or other waste product containing oxidised metal as well as refine to produce the required final product specification, or simply melt metal reliably and economically.


VII.    ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY

We offer guidance with energy consumption, carbon reduction and environmental impact.


VIII.    TURN KEY PROVISION

We can assist with the specification of bag-house filtration plant, with furnace charging arrangements and with the design of pouring arrangements for liquid metal from the furnace into castings or for further refining.


IIX.    LOW ENERGY MELTING 

Our rotary furnaces operate with low energy consumption – the following energy consumptions are typical: 550 kW/tn iron melting; 880 kW/tn aluminium melting 780 kW/tn lead smelting.
