Metal production, Electro winning and electro refining

Solutions for electro refining and electro winning

  • Metal production and recycling
  • Copper, zinc, lead, aluminum and nickle electro-refining and electro-winning
  • Zinc roasting and electrolysis
  • Chemical electrolysis of Chlor-alkali, NaCl, HCl

These factories use high voltage and high current equipment. The equipment is subject to high temperatures, mechanical stress, acids and other chemical substances. Solidcure has built up the necessary experience to tackle the challenges on the level of insulation. Insulating parts to be used for cellhouses, busbar-systems, cranes, electrostatic filters can be provided or produced.

Custum insulating parts made of composite materials

Custom insulating parts can be used in cellhouses, electrolysis enviroments, furnaces, and areas subject to high temperatures.  Materials used are: epoxy, polyimide and silicone. The materials can be casted or machined out of glass fabric reinforced plates, rods or tubes. Composites have a stable geometry at high temperature and have a minimal deformation when subjected to loads. The properties de not deteriorate with age.

Rolling bridges can be operating under continuous electrical tension. These bridges need to be supported by heavy duty insulators that are

  • compact,
  • easy to clean 
  • can withstand extreme mechanical forces
