Rectifiers for magnesium smelters
Maximized efficiency, realiability and trouble-free integration into the overall power system with minimum maintenance requirements are key requirements in the electrowinning industry.
As a leading worldwide supplier of rectifiers, ABB has the experience and expertise to fulfill demanding requirements with the MCR and HCR, which is best suitable but not limited to the following applications:
- Extraction and refining of copper, zinc and other nonferrous metals.
The electrowinning industry is characterized by extraction plants located in some of the world's most remote and inaccessible regions, facing some of the most difficult and extreme climatic conditions. Extreme heat or cold, dust, earthquakes, high altutitudes and aggressive or corrosive environments do not allow any compromise on the ruggedness and reliability of the electrical equipment. For maximum availability and highest productivity a robust, reliable and efficient power supply is needed.
