Excellence in non-ferrous metals
You especially know that non-ferrous metals move the world. None of today’s industrial sectors would exist without these valuable materials. They are essential for products we use every day such as smartphones, tablets, and computers. Yet you are also acutely aware of how prices for almost all metals have come under pressure in recent years. That’s why you need competitive solutions to ensure you stand out from the crowd. However, the current situation also offers new chances, both for you and for us. To leverage these opportunities, SMS and Mettop have formed a joint venture. Named PolyMet Solutions GmbH (PolyMet Solutions), the company is dedicated to customers in the non-ferrous metals industry.
Its mission? To create innovative and highly profitable solutions for the metals production industry.
Copper, lead, nickel, zinc, tin...
Gold, silver, platinum, palladium...
Cobald, molybdenum, tungsten, vanadium...
Understanding the process is a fundamental requirement for designing reliable and efficient metallurgical plants. It ensures the correct dimensioning of pyrometallurgical vessels for new non-ferrous metals facilities. Furthermore, precise knowledge in this area helps us optimize or modify processes to suit changed conditions. This is vital because the right process definition results in a more profitable plant.
Whatever you require – whether primary or secondary production lines – we supply the right engineering solutions, units, and designs for everything from single machines up to full lines.
We offer the supply of new installations as well as the upgrade of existing units. Available now from PolyMet Solutions is our improved primary smelter for non-ferrous metals.
PolyMet Solutions draw on many years of experience as well as extensive knowledge about the components and plants used throughout the entire process chain for non-ferrous metals production. That gives us the expertise necessary for compiling comprehensive studies as well as customized training courses – whatever your field.
Polymetallic ore is a mineral containing more than two metals.
We at PolyMet Solutions devise the most efficient way to recover these metals
profitably. That involves processing the non-ferrous metals. “Poly” means multiple,
or more than one way. Numerous methods have been developed and applied to
extract these metals.
