|ACT Ltd. is offering new technologies to enable copper producers to gain greater efficiency in production to existing industry benchmark. While leaving a leaner, more environment-friendly carbon footprint it achieves higher copper cathode purity.
Reduced operating costs result in greater profits. Production capacity can be increased by up to 140% of actual capacity.
Our designers have developed and adapted the range of Current Control techniques dedicated to the electrolytic copper deposition process. Copper is deposited faster, with higher current densities, and impurities are inhibited more efficiently. The Adaptive Current Control process is a software and hardware system which effectively accelerates the process of electrolytic deposition of copper allowing for increased current densities without losses in copper deposit purity and lowering, at the same time, the specific energy consumption per ton of produced copper.
Adaptive Current Control processes can be applied to any existing production systems like stainless steel or copper starter sheets, in both areas of ER & EW (electrorafination and electrowinning) and does not affect physical characteristics of anodes being used. This method of electrolytic copper production can be implemented in existing copper plants without essential modifications to the tankhouse infrastructure.
The process is approved for supply against listed Grade A+ copper contracts by INSCX™ Exchange enabling ACT customers to place/record throughput of copper cathodes via the INSCX™ Exchange to the London Metal Exchange Grade A benchmark and/or benefit from branding to supply copper Grade A+ as listed by INSCX.
