Dross Press

ALTEK invented the dross press in the early 1990s and at that time had a relationship with a UK company called J M McIntyre, who distributed the ALTEK dross press product. Following this, the TARDIS press was launched by J.McIntyre and the two systems, from the same birthplace, became available in the market. ALTEK acquired the TARDIS business in July 2009, and both the ALTEK and former TARDIS technical teams have been working hard on integrating the two technologies to provide their customers with the very latest dross press technology.

Electromagnetic Stirring

ALTEK, under an exclusive agreement with RPC-MHD of Krasnoyarsk, Russia, presents the most versatile and cost-effective magneto-hydrodynamic (MHD) induction stirring system (sometimes known as Electromagnetic Stirring (EMS)) available to the aluminium industry. Retrofits to existing aluminium furnaces are a simple and cost-effective means of increasing productivity while reducing both fuel consumption and dross generation. The equipment is manufactured in the UK to International standards.

Salt Slag Press

ALTEK have developed a specialised salt slag press to extract as much aluminium out of slag as possible. Salt slag differs from aluminium dross due to it having a lower aluminium content and a higher temperature when taken out of the furnace. ALTEK’s salt slag press is designed and programmed to match these differing needs so as to maximise aluminium extraction, and therefore saving you money and increasing aluminium recovery.
