SESSION 1:


CONTINUOUS ANNEALING OF CU AND AL STRIP IN A FLOATING STATE

Location: Presentation Areas Inside Hall B1
Times:
Tuesday, 11:45 AM

Don Martosko,
Techint Technologies Inc,
100 Corporate Center Drive,
Coraopolis, PA, 15108-3185

This annealing process delivers superior metallurgical quality over conventional heat treat systems. With low strip tension, the material passes in transverse waves through the furnace in a “floating” state, using a strategically placed high velocity jet heating air circulation system. The speed of the treatment gives excellent and uniform crystallization, higher yield and tensile strengths, and better elongation than is obtained in conventional systems.

The features of this system also include low operating costs, rapid heating and cooling of material, uniform thermal processing, enhanced buckling resistance, no formation of “sea gull wings”, no scratches or wrinkles, tracking that is free from vibrations and fluttering, and a finished product that is very clean and bright. The consistency of these mechanical properties is more difficult to obtain with conventional furnaces.

Depending on strip width, copper strip treatment accommodates gauges down to 0.0013”, line speeds of 16-650 ft/min., and throughputs of 1-22 TPH. Aluminum strip treatment accommodates gauges down to 0.001”, line speeds of 32-650 ft/min, and throughputs of 1-32 TPH.


AUTOPAK - TOTAL AUTOMATION FOR D.C. SLAB CASTING

Location: Presentation Areas Inside Hall B1
Times:
Tuesday, 12:15PM

John V. Griffin, Pechiney Aluminum
Engineering, Inc.,
333 Ludlow Street,
Stamford, CT 06902

Pechiney Aluminium Engineering has built on 20 years of continual improvements and advancements in automatic slab casting technology to develop the “AUTOPAK”.

Technology Concept

The Pechiney “AUTOPAK” technology is a complete automotive casting package consisting of “state-of-the-art “ process equipment and a total integrated management and information system. The “AUTOPAK” process provides the cast house team with greater control over the operational casting station parameters; from the holding furnace(s) to the D.C. casting machine.


CSE4 EDUPACK – A COMPLETE TEACHING RESOURCE FOR MATERIALS EDUCATION

Location: Presentation Areas Inside Hall B1
Times:
Tuesday, 12:45PM

Anthony Osborn, Sales Manager –
Worldwide Education Sales,
Granta Design Ltd, Unit 300, Rustat House,
62 Clifton Rd, Cambridge, CB1 7EG,
United Kingdom

The principles underlying CES4 EduPack are those developed by Professor Mike Ashby at Cambridge University, England for the teaching of materials. Using Ashby charts as a basis, students have a tool they can immediately start to use in their role as engineers.

CES4 EduPack comes as a complete teaching solution – including books, lecture notes and additional teaching resources. These are specifically designed to meet a variety of course requirements and are supplied at three levels. These levels excite and inspire students from the freshman year through to senior year and graduate level – where materials information is displayed at the same level of complexity as for the full commercial database.


OVERVIEW OF STAS FLUXING TECHNOLOGIES

Location: Presentation Areas Inside Hall B1
Times:
Tuesday, 1:15PM

Dominique Prive,
STAS,
1846 Outarde, Chicoutimi, PQ,
G7K 1H1, Canada

Metal quality is continually improving for a wider and wider range of alloys and products. Fluxing is a common term used to describe a variety of cleansing operations including degassing, alkaline removal and inclusion removal. STAS, being a leader in fluxing technologies, is able to provide options for treating molten metal at various stages in the production process. A brief overview of available equipment together with their application will be followed by supporting data illustrating the metallurgical improvements which can be achieved under a wide range of conditions for each of these equipments. They include the Treatment of Aluminium in a Crucible (TAC); Furnace Fluxing including the Rotary Flux/Gas Injectors (RFI/RGI); Degassers including the Alcan Compact in line Degasser (ACD); Filters including CFFs and Deep Bed Filters (ABFs).


REGENERATIVE THERMAL OXIDATION FOR NON-CONVENTIONAL APPLICATIONS AND CHLORINATED GASEOUS EMISSIONS

Location: Presentation Areas Inside Hall B1
Times:
Tuesday, 1:45PM

G. Drouin, J.O. Gravel and E. Le Couedic,
Biothermica Technologies Inc.,
426 Sherbrooke East, Montreal, Quebec,
H2L 1J6 Canada

The Biotox® Regenerative Thermal Oxidation (RTO) from Biothermica Technologies Inc. is a method used to treat and eliminate up to 99.9% non-conventional emissions containing various gaseous compounds. These gaseous emissions include pollutants such as Total Reduced Sulfur (TRS), Poly-Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH), chlorobenzene, HCl (Hydrochloric acid), Aliphatics Compounds, dioxins and furans.

The applications are in the kraft pulp industry, aluminium industry, roofing and shingle industry and also in magnesium industry. These pollutants are characterized by their corrosivity, a high molecular bonding and very high oxidation temperature, above 1200°C for the dioxins and furans.


SESSION 2:


HAUCK HIGH TEMPERATURE BURNERS AND JASPER ECOREG ROTARY REGENERATOR SYSTEMS

Location: Presentation Areas Inside Hall B1
Times:
Wednesday, 11:45 AM

John Marino, PE -
Senior VP of Business Development,
Hauck Manufacturing Co, PO Box 90,
Lebanon PA 17042

Hauck Manufacturing has been appointed the North American distributor of the Jasper Gmbh EcoReg Rotary Regenerator systems. The EcoReg, the most successful rotary regenerator ever put into operation, currently boasts dozens of units in operation all over Europe with outstanding performance. Hauck has manufactured our first unit, and placed it in operation in our main test facilities in Lebanon, PA. Hauck has also developed a line of high temperature ultra-low NOx burners called the TriOx™ to operate with this system. The TriOx™ design is a family of burners specifically designed to operate in Aluminum melting furnace applications to supplement our highly successful High Momentum burners first introduce for aluminum melting over 20 years ago. This combination will usher in many new alternatives for the design and operation of aluminum melt furnace technology.


ADVANCED N/O/H DETERMINATION WITH THE TCH600

Location: Presentation Areas Inside Hall B1
Times:
Wednesday, 12:15 AM

Robert T. Pristera,
Leco Corp,

Englewood, CO 80112

LECO combines innovative technology with proven performance in our state-of-the-art TCH600 Nitrogen/Oxygen/Hydrogen Determinator. Providing advanced N/O/H determination in a single analysis for a wide variety of metal and inorganic applications, it is ideal for production and research environments.

The TCH600 features re-engineered solid-state infrared and thermal conductivity detectors that provide lower detection limits and expanded instrument range. Dynamic flow compensation ensures flow system integrity while improving accuracy and precision for nitrogen determination in high-level oxygen materials. A powerful electrode impulse furnace (controlled by power, current, or temperature) can be ramped for separation of oxides/nitrides.

The TCH600 allows for an optional batch-style sample loading carousel and autocleaner to enhance instrument performance and productivity. Easy-to-use Windows®-based operating software offers advanced diagnostics, extended archiving, and flexible reporting capabilities.
