Foam Ceramic Filter Nordural Smelter has an open cell structure and several interconnected cavities surrounded by a ceramic fiber network. The porous structure of the filter helps to filter molten metal. Pour the molten metal into the ceramic foam filter to remove the solids entrained in the molten metal.
The quality of Foam Ceramic Filter Nordural Smelter is very important and has a great influence on the subsequent processing performance and the quality of the final product.
Therefore, countries all over the world attach great importance to the purification of molten aluminum.
There are many reasons for aluminum pollution. On the one hand, aluminum is exposed to the atmosphere in the furnace during the melting process in the molten or semi-melted state. Easy to oxidize, react with water vapor to absorb hydrogen, and easily form various forms of non-metallic slag. (Such as lining fragments, chlorides and carbides in flux, etc.) and coarse intermetallic particles.
On the other hand, some scraps that make up the batch bring some non-aluminum impurities into the recycling process.
Because the waste comes from process waste and waste from various processes in the factory, and waste outside the factory, the route is different, the composition is complex, and the quality is poor.
The above-mentioned impurities tend to produce bubbles and inclusions in the cast slab, which seriously affect the purity of the molten metal, thereby further deteriorating the processing performance, mechanical properties, corrosion resistance and appearance of the product.
The Icelandic aluminum smelter Nordural Grundartangi ehf, a wholly-owned subsidiary of American Century Aluminum, has completed the energization of all batteries for its latest 40,000-ton expansion project of its main aluminum smelter in Grundartangi. Iceland | Icelandic aluminum smelter Nordural Grundartangi ehf, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Century Aluminum, has completed all batteries for its latest 40,000-ton expansion project at its main aluminum smelter in Grundartangi. This expansion brings the plant’s rated production capacity to 260,000 tons. In October 2006, the company completed a 130 000-ton expansion project at the Grundartangi plant, which increased the factory’s production capacity from 90 000 tonnes to 220 000 tonnes.
“In the past two years, we have increased the capacity of the Grundartangi plant by nearly three times, on time and within budget,” said Century President and CEO Logan W. Kruger. ‘€~ I want to thank our operational management, contractors and employees for taking up this challenge. In addition, we thank the local community, government officials and Hitaveita Sudurnesja, Orkuveita Reykjavikur and Landsvirkjun for their continued support. ‘€™
Century Aluminium Company has primary aluminum production capacity in the United States and Iceland, and an ownership interest in alumina and bauxite assets in the United States and Jamaica. Century’s corporate office is located in Monterey, California.
