3.2 New Smelter Cladding Saves $Ms in Downtime > read more

Water Cooled Copper Furnace Modules allow the continuous in-situ cooing of the furnace walls, acidic gas handling, furnace feed and hot metal tapping equipment.

Furnace life and availability relies on the efficiency of the coolers to continuously provide correct cooling profiles without compromising furnace integrity or leaking. Laser cladding extended the life of hot gas copper cooling elements by 50% with out compromising the cooling profile.

This was a new process developed by LaserBond working in collaboration with our customer's engineers.
