Tapping System

Tapping System


HMR Hydeq has developed a system that operates tapping and transport of liquid metal between the potroom and the casthouse in the primary aluminum plant.


This system provides several major benefits in the tapping process:

  • High operating speed and flexibility
  • No need for overhead cranes
  • Reducing operating costs: low oxidation and temperature loss, whole process is controlled by one operator only
  • Excellent safety and ergonomics for the operator. 

HMR Hydeq's tapping system consists of four components. More about these components can be found in the menu to the right.

  • Tapping Vehicles
  • Crucible Cleaner
  • Tube Cleaner
  • Preheater for the discharge tubes
