Reverberatory holding furnace

Specifically designed for receiving, holding, alloying and preparing high quality aluminium.

Prime catalogue

The key equipment of the PRIME plants are the melting towers, with high perfomance and energy efficiency, designed for melting ingots, returns or medium size clean scrap.

Its operating principle is based on the heat transmission from the combustion fumes to the aluminium that is loaded through the top of the hopper. As the fumes pass through the aluminium load, it is heated, dried and finally descends to the bottom of the tower, where it is completely melted.

The cleaning door of our melting towers, covers the entire width of the melting chamber, and together with the automatic skimming system, allow an easier and safer accesibility and therefore an improved cleaning operation. This results in high quality aluminium, lower maintenance costs and a longer life-time of the furnace.

Our smart plants include auxiliary equipment, such as loading systems and skimming machines that improve and make easier the operation of the plant.

The molten aluminium from the melting tower is transfered to the holding furnaces, where it is alloyed and the chemical composition is homogenised.

Finally, the metal is poured into transport ladles to continue with the next steps of the casting process.

The Prime Casting plants are completely Smart and designed to be integrated in the 4.0 Industry with the Beyond platform.

Digitized plants

We incorporate 4.0 industry solutions, offering equipment with the
latest technology and Smart Maintenance Service.

Value proposal

Maximum metal yield

+

We guarantee a metal yield of 99,5%* with primary ingot as raw material and minimum oxidation losses in the furnaces.

Energy efficiency

+

We guarantee a consumption of 65 Nm3/t with primary ingot as raw material in the melting towers. The achieved energy efficiency is similar to the obtained in furnaces with regenerative burners.

High productivity

+

We design high capacity furnaces and our smart plants include auxiliary equipment, such as continuous loading systems and skimming machines that improve the operation of the plant, thus ensuring the maximum melting rate of the furnaces.

Safety for workers

+

Fully automated plants that require minimum manual labors.

High quality aluminium

+

The design of our furnaces and the automation of the loading and skimming process, allow an optimum cleaning operation. The uniformity and homogenity of the aluminum with the porous plugs technology results in top quality aluminium.

4.0 Industry

+

Fully automated plants, Smart process control and preventive maintenance with the Beyond platform. Win-Win projects based in 4.0 industry solutions.
