The new Vert-Ref Process is an evolution of the Cosmelt system supplied in several units by Continuus-Properzi. It is very flexible and offers many possibilities.
The new Vert-Ref Process facilitates the melting, slagging, refining and homogenization of copper scrap in a continuous or batch operation in order to obtain molten copper with a controlled content of impurities for the production of copper ingot, copper rod or other copper products.
The Vert-Ref melting shaft is suggested in the range 5-12 tph while the total annual production may vary form 8.000 up to 40.000 tpy and more with different arrangements of casters for rod, billet, ingot or other products and different number and sizes of the holding/reduction furnaces installed.
|Increased thermal efficiency
|Easier slagging and refining
|Cheaper refining process with less additives
|Longer refractory life and very short downtimes
|Easier fumes filtration
|Improved final chemistry of the molten copper
