The Belgian company Metallo Chimique N.V. in Beerse has placed an order with SMS Meer, Germany, for the supply of a complete casting wheel plant for anodes. Metallo Chimique is a producer of secondary copper which is made from scrap.
The anode casting wheel is designed for a production of 50 t of anodes per hour. The plant includes a caster newly developed by SMS Meer for minimum weight tolerances. The scope of supply also comprises a system for reducing the thermal load on the molds. This will enable Metallo Chimique to reduce its costs significantly and increase the productivity.
"Our new system for minimizing the thermal load on the casting molds increases the mold service life by up to 20 %. Furthermore, less service is necessary," explains Thomas Schatz, sales engineer at SMS Meer.
Commissioning of the plant is scheduled for summer 2012.
