Dross Cooler and Tilting Rotary Furnaces from KMF

Most effective Alumium recovery with the new dross cooler COOLmax and tilting rotary furnace MASTERmax from KMF

The new COOLmax® from KMF cools down most effectively hot Aluminium dross below 350°C. After direct dedrossing in special dross boxes the dross is transported to the COOLmax and is hydraulically connected with the machine to avoid further expensive oxidation. The COOLmax does not need any water cooling but only needs a 400V electrical connection. Depending on model and capacity the cooling time is only between 20 min and 60 min. The cooled dross can directly be molten under salt in a tilting rotary furnace. Drosses cooled by COOLmax contain up to 25% more Aluminium compared to normal air cooled dross. Models are available for 250kg, 500kg and 1500kg per cooling cycle. Due to the excellent recovery performance, pay-back times are less than 12 months. The cooled dross should be remolten afterwards in a MASTERmax tilting rotary furnace under salt to get best metal recovery rates.

About us

Company details

KMF - Maschinenfabriken GmbH is a worldwide operating company in the field of mechanical engineering, plant construction and process technology.

KMF manufactures dross cooling machines and tilting rotary furnaces for efficient Aluminium, Copper and Zinc-Recycling. The furnace capacity ranges from 2t – 25t with a maximum daily scrap throughput of 130 t/d. The capacity for dross cooling machines is up to 1,5 t per batch. The furnace operation is either possible with horizontal axis for highly contaminated cheap and thin walled scrap requiring the liquid slag process, or with inclined axis up to 8° for the low salt, dry slag process. Optimal yield and minimized energy consumption are achieved with an intelligent scrap database, automatic operation with permanent PLC process control and with integrated real-time weighing cells.
According to customer´s requirements KMF offers also Turn-Key recycling plants. The scope of supply comprises the complete plant lay-out including charging machines, exhaust gas measurements, holding furnaces, ingot casting machines and scrap management.
KMF was established in 1874 and is a 5th generation family run company with the head office in Villach/Austria.
