Secondary Aluminium Processing

Melting Solutions experts have years of unrivalled experience in the field of aluminium scrap processing. Here are examples of just some of the scrap our furnaces can process, recycling mixed low value scrap into high value ingots able to re-enter the production chain, producing for example casting for new car engines:

secondary aluminium processing

Taint Tabor – Mixed Wrought scrap
Tense – Mixed Cast Scrap. Even grades with iron
Drosses – pressed and loose all types
UBC – Used Beverage Cans baled and loose
Other scraps include swarf (also known as turnings or chips), profile scrap, foils, thermal break etc.


Final product – high value foundry ingots to international specifications

We offer technology and solutions for secondary aluminium casthouses. Melting Solutions’ furnaces and processing equipment have the most technologically advanced methods for melting all types of scrap and recycling into foundry ingots ready to go into the production, for example, of new automotive and other cast products.

The key to profitable recycling of scrap is optimisation of energy, productivity and most important METAL RECOVERY. Melting Solutions brings together the complete plant tailored to the specific needs of the recycler.


To maximise recovery Melting solutions offer advanced Twin Chamber furnaces with metal pumping. For drosses and more contaminated scrap Melting Solutions are world leaders in Tilting Rotary Furnace technology.

Advanced reverberatory melting and holding furnaces with electro magnetic stirring technology with unrivalled fuel efficiency, productivity and fully homogenised ingot quality.

Processing scrap requires thought and respect for the environment Melting Solutions furnaces include thermal oxidisers (afterburners) and gas filtration to ensure our plants are fully compliant with the very highest world-wide environmental standards. Casting of the final product into various ingot shapes, is done by automated continuous ingot casting lines, to suit the plant size from smallest to the largest plant.

Even specialised products for steel di-oxidation, so called ‘di-ox’, can be cast in various shapes such as pyramids, hemispheres and granules. Please contact Clive Hall for more details at
