Excellent technologies will always find their market 

10 years of making industrial operations safer, greener and more cost-efficient!

In 2014 the first industrial scale ILTEC system has been implemented and since then the water free cooling technology has made many customers benefit from

  •  Safer operations – whilst keeping the same cooling effect

  • Energy savings – ILTEC enables more efficiency in heat recovery.
  • Higher availability of the equipment – ILTEC allows cooling of areas where water is not possible at all

The ILTEC Technology has been successfully implemented in a wide field of applications, in the year 2023 four ILTEC Systems have been manufactured and commissioned. 

Let us explore together where ILTEC can support YOUR process!

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.
