The Challenges to Supply New Casthouse Furnaces in a Modern Aluminium Smelter Project
In this paper Solios Thermal will share its recent experiences in designing and integrating 11 melting and holding furnaces and 2 cooling water plants in Qatar for the new aluminium smelter, planning to produce 585,000 t/yr. This paper will discuss the alternative furnace design specific for this contract and will focus on the key design differences referenced to the traditional furnace type.
