Aluminium tapping vehicle

Aluminium tapping vehicle

The aluminium tapping vehicle or metal tapping & transport vehicle is able to tap hot metal in a save manner. The big advantage of this machine is that this system combines multiple machines. It is much more flexible than a Pot Tending Crane (PTC) because a PTC cannot reach all the pots if other cranes are blocking the route..

Saving money by reducing dross

The closed system avoids the contact between the liquid aluminium with air, this results in a minimal unnecessary dross production and therefor a higher efficiency of your aluminium production.

Saving money by reducing number of operators

The Hencon Aluminium Tapping Vehicle can be operated by one operator. The alternative of this vehicle would be either a more expensive PTC or a combination of machines e.g. PTC, Ladle Transport Vehicle or Ladle Transport Tilting Vehicle. This requires multiple operators.

Smelter environment

The vehicle is capable to operate in dusty, corrosive atmosphere (alumina dust, fluoride) and a strong magnetic field. Motor air intake is airtight and equipped with special filters.
Special attention has been taken to ensure good visibility and safety of operation when reversing in order to permit easy and safe operation at loading and unloading areas.

All machines can be produced according to your specifications
