Billet Process and Equipment
Dross Management Maximizing Dross Value and Minimizing Dross Generation
David J. Roth -- ALTEK-MDY, LLC, USA
Equipment and processes that maximize dross recovery generated during melting operations, and the global technologies that reduce dross generation in the furnace are examined. Dross processing techniques that help cool hot dross for maximum recovery are discussed. Preprocessing scrap properly and the pretreatment of materials to lower dross generation are addressed. All aspects of reducing dross and maximizing its recovery are highlighted.
