Installation for the storage, transport and separation of materials prior to the furnace


The end of the year is approaching and we couldn't do it in a better way: with new projects that are already on their way to our clients' facilities.

In this case we show you one of the projects that we have recently successfully completed and that is in the process of being delivered. It consists of the storage, treatment and transport of aluminum chips that contain ferrous particles.

Our client wanted to be able to store a large amount of material at the beginning of the treatment and thus achieve a fully automated process, without the need for human manipulation.

For this, our team designed a complete installation that consists of a large 7m3 spindle hopper, a loading conveyor, a magnetic drum and a long swan neck infeed conveyor for loading into the furnace.

In this case, the main function of the hopper is the storage of the chip and to make the loading to the conveyor in an automatic way.

On the other hand, in the next phase, the first conveyor will raise the chip until it is discharged into the magnetic drum. With the drum we separate the aluminium chip from all the ferrous particles it contains, obtaining a clean aluminium chip, free of contamination.

Finally, the last conveyor will raise the chip until it is discharged into the furnace wgere it will be melted.
