Aluminum Melting and Refining Training

Purpose of Education

Although aluminum and its alloys are among the youngest metallic materials, due to their unique properties, they have found use in almost every area of the industry today.

Especially in the context of 'sustainability', 
the lightness and recyclability  of aluminium
and aluminium alloys is the driving force in new alloy and product design.

Melting stage is the most basic stage of aluminium semi-product and final product production process which affecting the liquid metal cost, quality and environmental part. Because of the high interest of aluminium to oxygen, the ‘risk of oxidation’ and ‘recyclability’, the variety of raw materials necessitates the understanding of melting and subsequent refining processes.

Target of Training 

All participants at the end of this training;

  • Will be able to see the difference between melting thermodynamics and theoretical values and practical values,

  • Will learn the conditions of approaching theoretical values, i.e. efficient melting,

  • Will be able to analyze the relationship between melting and metal quality,

  • Will be able to see the basic logic of the refining process,

  • Will interpret the components of melting and refining process costs,

  • Will be able to see the environmental effects of melting and refining,

  • Will have an idea of how the process chain in their plants affects each other,

  • Will be able to learn about the properties of melting furnaces in the context of the choice of technology suitable for the intended process, which is one of the basic engineering parameters,

  • Will be informed about the benefits of small and operative improvements

  • will understand the vital importance of ‘measurement and reporting’ in aluminium plants.

Training Fee (Per Person)

1.200 ₺ + VAT


Who Should Attend

  • Engineers and technicians working in plants which produce aluminum semi-products and end products,
