Unique and contemporary for today copper electrolysis plant in Russia and the CIS countries was opened on February 29 the UMMC UMMC at the company — JSC "Uralelectromed."
The first stage of a new copper electrolysis capacity of 150,000 tonnes of copper cathode per year, the investment amounted to over 4.4 billion rubles.
The new workshop introduced a radically new — baseless technology of copper cathodes (instead of copper cathodes are used bases, stainless steel reusable). The shop installed Polymer electrolytic bath contemporary design with dimensions of nearly twice as many existing today baths. This increases the productivity of the equipment.
Note that work in the shop are automated — for the treatment of electrodes mounted machine preparation of the anodes, the car and the car wash sdirki anode butt. Process control is one of the operating points.
