Converter technology is also used for non-ferrous metals such as copper, lead, Ni, and precious metals. This is where the TBRC (top-blown rotating converter) represents an ideal solution. The most recently commissioned example is currently in successful operation at Aurubis. It features a vessel designed for a tapping weight of 100 t of copper. This converter type is also perfectly suited to precious metals such as PGM, silver, gold, and nickel.
