Agdermaskin was responsible for engineering, production and installation of the main components for the bath processing plant at the
Hydro Aluminium Karmøy pilot factory.
The bath processing plant to be supplied
by Tratec Agdermaskin handles the bath (cryolite) from the electrolysis cell, and until
it is crushed and screened in silos ready for re-use.
Cryolite, or what we refer to as bath, is used in
the manufacture of aluminium to
cover the melted aluminium.
This process is required to keep the melting temperature low and reduce energy
consumption. The bath material is recycled by extracting the material from the
melting tub at the same time as extracting the used anode to be replaced with a
new one. Subsequently, the bath material is cooled, crushed, screened and
stored (bath handling) before being reused as a cover during a new melting
bath processing plant usually includes the following products:
- Screening machines
- Metal sorters
- Conveyors for horizontal and vertical transport
- Feeding system
Tratec Agdermaskin has also had the delivery of key parts in the anode production at the Hydro Karmøy Aluminium plant.
Agdermaskin has designed bath handling equipment for several aluminum
production factories in Norway and internationally. Our company and employees
have significant experience and competence within bath handling technology.
