Smelter Consuming Synthetic Cryolite
Some aluminium smelters still use expensive synthetic Cryolite in their process, which has become unnecessary with the availability of Bath Material. Cost-effective Bath Material easily replaces the Cryolite without any negative operational consequences whatsoever and with huge potential savings.
Comparitive analysis shows that pure tapped Bath Material is virtually identical to synthetic Cryolite. Our Bath Material enhances pot-stability and improves current efficiency, which also extends the average pot life. We offer various grain sizes and quantities for whichever best suits your smelting process.
|Constituent||Synthetic Cryolite||Pure tapped Bath Material|
|Na3AlF6||97%||77 to 80%|
|AlF3||Needs to be added||11%|
|CaF2||Needs to be added||4.5%|
|Al2O3||Needs to be added||4%|
|Soda ash||Not needed||Needed for preheating/startup|
