Product category: Pelletization plants


Several customers produce bars/bolts in their in-house foundries as well as carrying out the ensuing mechanical processing (dry processing). In the past the chips were melted in loose form in crucible furnaces. The induction channel furnace is markedly more economical from a power consumption point of view than a crucible furnace, however it cannot process fine particle material, so no loose chips. For this reason the chips are briquetted. The charge is then made up of briquettes together with gun-metal blocks and they are immersed in the liquid metal bath. Several customers have systems with diverse performance rates ranging between 0.5 and 2.5 tons per hour.The first unit went into operation in 2003. Thanks to the savings on power bills with the melting process in a channel furnace, the systems amortised within a few years.
