The aluminium obtained from pyrolysis is melted in a 2-chamber hearth furnace. In addition to this recycled aluminium, other aluminium scrap with low residual contamination is used in the smelting plant.
The heating chamber has recuperative air preheating and low NOx burners.
The aluminium is tapped and transferred discontinuously to a furnace for alloying, casting and holding.
The rotary salt furnace is mainly used for thin-walled and fine-grained aluminium scrap This means less power consumption at high output, which is in line with our efficient and resource-saving concept.
Part of the plant is a Gautschi casting belt with a fully automatic robot system for stacking and packing the ingots.
