Tank
Measuring range up to:
1.5 m
Medium:
Alumina powder
Process temperature:
0 … +30 °C
Process pressure:

Application

In the smelter, above the fused salt electrolysis bath there are small buffer tanks that are pneumatically fed via pipelines. The alumina powder is dispensed into the melt bath in small quantities from these tanks. The filling of the buffer tank is controlled by the feed pressure. Full and empty alarms ensure optimal charging of the powder.
