Metal Treatment System in crucibles (MTS)

VHE’s Metal Treatment System (MTS) has proven to be a reliable upstream metal cleaning process step, reducing alkaline metals in an efficient way.
Incoming metal in crucibles from electrolysis is handled prior to furnace charging/batching, consequently available furnace time is increased.
The VHE-MTS is a two-rotor setup that improves stirring efficiency, where Argon is used as the transport medium for AlF3 injection.



Key features of VHE’s MTS:
• Efficient removal of alkaline metals and carbides
• Low consumption of AlF3
• Thrifty operating costs
• Minimal dross formation
• Laminar movement of metal
