Compact-type remelt plants

Melting furnaces
Integrated, continuously operated, fully automated solution

Here is a unique, integrated, continuously operated, fully automated solution. It starts with scrap handling and goes right through to cut-to-length, homogenized extrusion billets (logs).
The CTRP is ideal for you if you remelt your own turn-around scrap as well as scrap from the market to produce extrusion billets (logs).

Core equipment:

  • Scrap bin accumulator
  • Charging and skimming machine
  • Continuous three-chamber melting and casting furnace
  • Inline degassing unit
  • Horizontal or vertical casting machine with flying saw
  • Continuous homogenizing furnace and air cooling station
  • Weighing and bundling system

Core features:

  • Production range from 2,000 to 30,000 tons per year · Continuous, fully automated process integrating all production steps
  • Little manpower required (2 men per shift including scrap handling, charging, casting, and packing)
  • Low melt loss due to submersion melting process (<0.5% of charged metal)
  • Low energy consumption
  • Competitive investment cost

Compact-type remelt plants for long-profile scrap & VDC casting

Many extruders opt for this furnace type to remelt clean profile scrap up to 7 m long at melt rates of approx. 3 tons per hour. To manage frequent alloy and log diameter changes, you can integrate a tiltable casting furnace plus a VDC casting plant.
