Warmest thoughts and best wishes...

Dear Businesspartner!

This year was also strongly influenced by the Covid pandemic and again the challenges for all of us were enormous.

From an economic perspective, however, it is encouraging to note that demand and production dynamics in the basic materials industry have grown significantly. While we were again severely hampered in our face-to-face contact with customers last year due to global travel restrictions, we are confident that the outlook will improve in the foreseeable future. With our official representatives in many countries, we also have a local presence and are ideally placed to respond to the needs of our customers.

With their support, we have succeeded in implementing several projects in the international arena. The focus was on innovative and, above all, tailor-made plant solutions, which were developed and successfully implemented especially for our customers. This is exactly our strength, the sustainable optimization of metallurgical processes, both in primary and secondary metallurgy in the world of non-ferrous metals. We are the reliable and innovative partner for our customers and together we develop new solutions and radical approaches for the coming decades.

In times like these, we also face internal challenges. Creating an optimal hybrid work environment - home office on the one hand and office presence on the other - was our goal. With the help of our new "4-day week" working time model, we will continue to position ourselves as an attractive company for our employees in the future.

Our whole team is looking forward to a good cooperation in the coming years and wishes you a reflective Christmas, health and all the best for the year 2022..

... for a wonderful holiday and a happy new year .





ILTEC System ready for Installation

ILTEC facility for Spanish customer is finally ready for shipping

The newly constructed ILTEC facility is equipped with four individual cooling lines which enables the cooling of large areas and applications. Furthermore the cooling capacity of the two heat exchangers of 1.500 kW each and the pumping capacity of 50 m3/h guarantee the appropriate removal of larger heat amounts.  

The construction is designed as two individual installation racks (as seen in the construction drawing and the picture) for making both the transport and the installation on site more easy and flexible. As a special feature, the installation of a high-performance instantaneous heater makes the system not only capable of cooling but also enables heating and temperature keeping within the cooler. 


Innovative Team for your success

Mettop GmbH, founded in 2005, is an independent Austrian engineering company, specialized in the design, optimization, and engineering of technologies for metallurgical processes. Mettop is active in the field of pyro- as well as hydrometallurgy of non-ferrous metals and furthermore serves with innovative cooling systems for the iron and steel industry. The scope of services comprises of optimization 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 patented 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 the 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 optimization), operator training for customers in the non-ferrous metals industry, and assists also in the optimization of risk management in metallurgical plants.
