Welcome to our Insight blog where you will find stories and announcements that pertain to the industries Pyrotek serves, from aluminium to zinc galvanizing to glass to acoustics to battery materials and more.
Pyrotek’s Scrap Aluminium Melting System (SAMS) is helping secondary aluminium recyclers around the world have a safer, smoother, and more controlled process for melting low-density, light-gauge aluminium scrap.
Aluminium industry plants around the world have found they can improve their operational efficiency and increase profitability by using launders made with Pyrotek’s advanced strength Ceramite material, which is manufactured in a variety of blends for every specific application.
In a charge of 40,000 pounds of prime aluminium T-bar or ingot/sow, he saw a reduction of melt times from 7 hours to 4 hours. He also saw an increase in production of 35,000-70,000 pounds in the first month of use.
The dual-chamber underheated low-pressure furnace utilizes a divider wall and stopper rod to isolate the holding chamber from the pressure chamber. This allows dross generation from charging to be isolated to the holding chamber.
With the acquisition of an MZR-2000 zinc-recovery unit, with a capacity of 2000 kilograms (4400 pounds), plants could decommission their dross mills.
Pyrotek’s engineering teams located around the world—in North America, Europe, China and Australia—each have broad technical experience and training.
Pyrotek's manufacturing method increases tube dimensional consistency, wall thickness, and life.
