AISTech 2018, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
CONTRIBUTION TO AIStech 2018:
From May 7th – May 9th Annual Meeting and Exhibition of The Association for Iron & Steel Technology (AIST) took place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The conference was featuring more than 550 technical sessions and Mettop contributed by writing a paper and giving an oral presentation about the ILTEC Technology for use in EAF.
We would like to congratulate the AIST organising committee for this successful event and look forward to attending the AISTech 2019 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
More Information about AISTech 2018:
IL-B2001 - Decrease of minimum operational temperature to -10 °C
Recent R&D development could now distinctly lower the crystallization temperature of IL-B2001 for ensuring a minimum operational temperature of -10 °C.
However, the real crystallization temperature is well below - 30 °C.
The new additives makes an operation in cold environment possible without additional heating elements and diminishes the need of insulation of piping and components.
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.
