Aluminium production. HICON
The HICON pusher-type furnace is the most modern design for reheating and homogenizing aluminum ingots prio to hot rolling. In contrast to conventional furnaces (such as soaking pit furnaces), The HICON pusher-type furnace is a facility that operates semi-continuously. Pusher-type furnaces use HICON technology, with powerful recirculation fans and a finely-tuned baffle system create optimum flow conditions for the transfer of thermal energy to the charge at the highest rate.
