Secondary Aluminum Production

Secondary Aluminum Production


Secondary aluminium production involves 2 general catagories of operations:
1-Scrap collection and pre-treatment
2-Smelting/Refining

Pretreatment operations include sorting, processing and cleaning scrap. Smelting/refining operations include cleaning, melting, refining, alloying and pouring of aluminum to casting moulds.
In our facility both processes are applied. Our tilt type rotating furnace (TTRF) is used to melt scrap and remove impurities and entrained gases. The molten aluminium pomped to holding furnace.
Holding furnaces are used for final alloying and for making any additional adjustments necessary to ensure that the aluminium meets product specifications.
Mesek recovers production wastages such as salt cake and salt as well.
