Medium current rectifier applications

Maximized efficiency, realiability and trouble-free integration into the overall power system with minimum maintenance requirements are key requirements in the electrochemical and electrowinning industry.

As a leading worldwide supplier of rectifiers, ABB has the experience and expertise to fulfill demanding requirements with the MCR1000, which is best suitable but not limited to the following applications:

  • Extraction and refining of copper, zinc and other nonferrous metals
  • Chemical processes (chlor-alkaline)

Continuous operation is crucial for a successfully operating electrochemical plant. That is why ABB offers integrated systems of DC power supplies for electrochemical processes that provide unrivalled availability and uptime in combination with the markets lowest life cycle costs.

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.
