Paper Title:
Estimating the Production Capabilities of Casthouse Equipment Configuration Options
  Abstract

Operational casthouses must, above all else, be capable of accepting all primary metal produced by the potlines so as not to limit the ability of the smelter to produce metal and to provide the most stable operating regime for the reduction cells by allowing consistent metal pad depth. To be effective, casthouse equipment configurations must accommodate not only the normal operational state, but also both repair and catch-up scenarios. Hatch has developed a simple first pass methodology for assessing the performance of equipment configuration options for primary aluminium casthouses in this context.
