Innovative plants for recycling and heat treatment

Back to Posts

LOI Thermprocess, Duisburg, will present innovative recycling and heat treatment plants at ALUMINIUM 2022.

Plants for the recycling of Aluminium scrap as well as heat treatment for several applications represent technologies of Tenova LOI Thermprocess. Their excellence proving LOI to be the leading international supplier for the Aluminium industry. Moreover, Tenova LOI Thermprocess distinguishes itself with the sophisticated process technology for the plants and the integrated automation of both the entire production process and the handling of the heating good. Offering complete facilities for the recycling of Aluminium scrap and the heat treatment of cast and forged parts, strips and foils, Tenova LOI Thermprocess provides innovative and efficient thermal process and plant engineering in the process cycle of recycling, melting and heat treatment. The decarbonisation of processes and plants, e.g. by H2-ready combustion systems or electrical heating systems, is applied by us in practical, industrial scale.

Melting, Casting and Recycling Plants

The strength of innovation is particularly evident for the TCF Twin-Chamber Melting Furnace. High metal yield, energy efficiency and environmental compatibility characterize these plants. Contaminated end-of-life scrap of various origins can be recycled without pre-treatment since the entire contamination treatment takes place within the plant. The integrated waste gas treatment ensures safe and efficient combustion of pollutants. The TCF is equipped with LOI’s regenerator system CCR, providing an optimum heat recovery from the waste gas. CCR guarantees the rapid quenching of the waste gas required for environmental compatibility. Due to the very low waste gas temperature, no additional cooling upstream the filter system is needed.

The application of the proven contamination treatment process for single chamber Melting furnaces allows for a cost-effective solution for recycling of lower contaminated scraps. Successfully applied by the Aluminium industry throughout the world, the LOI Thermprocess recycling technology TCF currently produces a total of approx. 5,000 t of liquid metal from Aluminium scrap every day.

The innovative strength of  Tenova LOI Thermprocess is also the basis for the concepts of heat treatment plants. The pioneering process technology implemented therein is made available to Aluminium processing companies. The combination of highest temperature uniformity, uniform heating of the construction components, a perfect process and batch control as well as production planning comprises all essential features of today's heat treatment 4.0. Quenching concepts applicable to the requirements of individual components and complete batches as well as the integrated fully automatic control systems are indispensable for the ground-breaking plant flexibility. Furthermore, the energy source can be selected flexibly and sustainably – whether with highly efficient burner systems, as purely electric heating or as hybrid heating - the design is individually adapted to current and future requirements.
