Metallurgy
Best available solution for concentrate smelting

Available now from PolyMet Solutions is our improved primary Cu-concentrate smelter called Polysmelt. Basically, PolyMet Solutions takes existing reactors as a basis and introduces innovative changes that improve the efficiency, operation, and lifetime:

  • High-speed burner provides better turbulence for rapid reactions in the reactor
  • ILTEC cooled permanent side wall for safe operation
  • Improved side wall cooling and lining design minimizes hearth and sidewall wear
  • Purging system for minimized copper content in slag

PolyMet Solutions also focuses on optimizing existing units such as TSL furnaces, Teniente, Noranda, Kivcet, Mitsubishi, Vanyukov, QSL. For such units optimizations are offered by us:

  • Improved cooling and refractory designs for the slag area, for longer lifetime
  • Better lance systems (ILTEC technology)
  • Cooled tuyere zone for Noranda and Teniente reactors
  • Definition of the process and improved automation system
