    Press Head

    All ALTEK TARDIS Gen II Dross Press and Salt Slag models are fitted with a specially designed, cast steel press head, suited to the mould of the dross pan which has been supplied. Combining the correct press head with the dross pan is vital to ensure the thermiting dross is extinguished quickly. The press heads come with patented press head cooling technology which rapidly cools the dross through a more efficient heat transfer system, allowing for optimal in house recovery.
