LOTUSS Systems

Overview

Pyrotek's low turbulence scrap submergence (LOTUSS) system is designed to cost effectively remelt chips and light-gauge aluminium while minimizing oxide generation and metal loss.

The LOTUSS system consists of a molten metal circulation pump that transfers metal from the furnace into a circular refractory well. The well has a unique design that generates a downward vortexing action of metal flow. This metal flow pattern forces scrap charge materials to become quickly submerged below the metal surface which reduces oxidation generation and metal loss. The LOTUSS system is used alongside a uniform rate, continuous feed conveyor that is less than or equal to the furnace’s thermal capacity. The system works adjacent to an open or side-well reverberatory furnace with a metal depth of at least 51 centimetres (20 inches) and has a metal charge rate melting capacity of up to 10,000 kilograms per hour (22,046 pounds per hour). Used in conjunction with other elements, such as Pyrotek's jet bed dryer, LOTUSS systems can improve metal recovery rates even further.
