SisAl Pilot: Charging and Stirring

02 May 2022

During the pilot trials at Elkem, three different charging strategies are used. Two of them starts of by heating the SiO-CaO-slag, and then adding the aluminium. Then one can either stir the materials with rotor stirring or with a gas lance. ITMATI is modelling the different stirring alternatives at Elkem. The last charging strategy is co-charging. Here, the different raw materials are charged simultaneously.
