ALTEK INTERNATIONAL INC.
ALTEK International, Inc. is the North American representative of HERTWICH ENGINEERING GmbH, manufacturer of Continuous Homogenization, Horizontal Casting and Integrated Sawing Systems. Altek is also a designer, manufacturer and supplier of aluminum dross recycling systems.
"THE PRESS," the patented device for treating hot dross, maximizes the in-house recovery of metal and prepares the remaining dross for maximum recovery from the dross recycler. The system is environmentally clean, in most cases eliminating the need for a baghouse. "THE PRESS" is safe, easy to operate, has fast cooling cycles and low operating and maintenance costs. "THE PRESS" does not utilize compressed air, water or other costly gas additions. ALTEK offers additional recycling stems that treat the cooled dross.
ALTEK also has a joint venture agreement with DIDION Manufacturing Co., manufacturer of Dross Tumbling equipment for the aluminum recycling industry. The cold processing technology, "THE TUMBLER", further treats the dross, increases the in-house recovery, generates saleable by-products and other smaller fractions that require subsequent handling or land filling. Another TUMBLER system treats salt cake, recovering substantial amounts of metal.
