Light Metals Research Centre are engaged in many projects on various aspects of Aluminium industry,
from developing new technologies, teaching smelter operators and managers to optimising smelter performance.
Here are some examples of the projects we have done in smelters and in our labs:
Reducing energy consumption
Reducing energy consumption in aluminium reduction cells without compromising current efficiency.
Amperage Increase Program on Aluminium Reduction Cells
Identifying the constraints limiting amperage increase and find solution pathways to remove these constraints.
Implementation of Gen3 Potline Control System in a 500kA Smelter
Shell Heat Exchanger
Implementation of Shell Heat Exchanger Technology in a smelter
Smelter Performance Audits
An independent audit of a single potline at the smelter in China. The purpose for the audit
