THANK YOU FOR VISITING US AT THE EMC 2017 CONFERENCE IN LEIPZIG!
As a leading expert in copper engineering, Mettop, together with PolyMet Solutions and the SMS group, was represented at a well-visited booth at the EMC 2017 in Leipzig, Germany. Not only the Austrian hospitality, but especially the expertise of our representatives were highly valued among the numerous international visitors of the conference and many interesting conversations as well as professional technical discussions were held.
For in-depth information regarding the new technologies introduced by Mettop please see our publications in the download sector:
Thank you for a perfect realisation of the event to the German organisation committee!
And see you in Düsseldorf in 2019….
Assembling Stage in Full Swing
Final Engineering and Construction Phase for ILTEC at voestalpine Donawitz, Austria
After some time of temporary halt, the construction of the ILTEC facility is now in full operation. For this special application of cooling the flanges of the RH degassing facility, the technology is even more sophisticated. Due to the regular changes of the nozzles and the lower vessel part respectively, a nitrogen purging to flush the cooled parts is implemented. This guarantees a perfectly safe operation mode with ILTEC and at the same time allows a loss-free change of vessel parts.
The completion of the facility will be in the middle of May 2017 whereas the industrial scale implementation will be realised at the end of this year.
The scope of services comprises of optimisation solutions in the area of furnace integrity, combining refractory selection and layout, gas purging systems and cooling elements. In the field of hydrometallurgy, a new electrolysis technology - the METTOP-BRX Technology - was developed and is in operation to allow an acceleration of the electrolytic refining of up to 50 percent. For all metallurgical aggregates and equipment, Mettop developed the new and water-free cooling technology ILTEC, that uses an ionic liquid as cooling medium, to create new pathways towards safe and efficient cooling for the entire metallurgical industry.
In addition, Mettop is internationally active in terms of technical consulting (process optimisation) and operator training for customers in the non-ferrous metals industry, and also assists in the optimisation of risk management in metallurgical plants.
