Liberate aluminum

Morbi nisl eros dignissim nec malesuada et convallis quis augue.

Salt cake is an unavoidable waste product from the secondary aluminum smelting.

It is a hazardous waste stream with land fill banned in most counties. Treatment options to re mediate salt cake are few those that are available are expensive. However, the salt cake can contain between 4% and 12 % of aluminum metal, plus potentially recoverable flux salts so why not treat it yourself.  

Traditionally smelters send their salt cake to third parties for processing. However, this is often expensive and the value of the metal bound up in the cake benefits the third party if they can recover it.  Often final disposal of the slag may not environmentally friendly or sustainable. The Ultromex technology allows for an in-situ solution meaning all of the waste salt slag can be treated at your site, recovering the aluminum for re melt and the flux salts for re use.

Historically mechanical  methods for metal recovery using ball and hammer mills are crude and smash the metal into fines which cannot then be economically re melted. And the residual non metallic particles (NMP) are still a problem.

Ultromex has developed a process using a brand new technology to cleanly separate aluminum metal from the slag meaning recoveries can be up to 99% of of the metal particles >0.5mm, with little in the way of residual fines.

Using in house chemical expertise Ultromex has gone on to on develop a chemical process which treats the residual NMP recovering the valuable Sodium Chloride and Potassium  Chloride flux salts for re use.  The remaining metal & salt free material can the n be sent for non hazardous land fill or serve as a useful material for other industries.
