Aluminium Smelters

Aluminum Smelters worldwide use carbon blocks as "sacrificial" anodes to produce primary aluminium. But anode assemblies are valuable production tools and investment assets which can be re-used after careful and effective treatment of their main components, under specific technological conditions. The wheel blast process, as applied by Wheelabrator, can achieve this treatment efficiently, and the Wheelabrator range of products includes proven machinery systems for all needs.


Typical applications include the cleaning of carbon butts with removal of all residuals, as well as the cleaning stub rods, thimbles, cathode bars and baked anodes.



Designed To Reduce Your Costs

Wheelabrator's wheelblast systems are fast, effective and resource saving, and comply with the stringent expectations of aluminum smelters worldwide.

The design, selection of material and manufacturing standards needed to cope with these hard working conditions are fully met by Wheelabrator's high quality and heavy duty technology.

A variety of machine-types can be used, and the choice is dependent on your specific application. Choose between a standard design machine or a special custom-designed machine.
