KAN-NAK helps you maximize the shareholder value by finding the fastest and most economical way of implementing current increase projects. Save energy, save money.
To bring your project to successful completion, we use thorough experience in the aluminum field as well as state of the art modeling tools and a long engineering experience.
In both primary aluminium production and downstream business, we will share with you our extensive knowledge, acquired over more than 35 years of worldwide activity.
Ready-to-use cathodes will increase your operational margin by saving energy, reducing rodding, optimizing lifetime and increasing productivity.
With measurement campaigns, KAN-NAK checks both the current state of cells and their optimized state. Measurements performed include current distributions, voltage breakdown, shell temperature, heat fluxes, bath and liquidus temperature, ledge profile, magnetic field in the liquid metal, metal upheaval and cell stability.
Busbars can be modified while all cells are under production, with no impact on your production.
Lining can be optimized to achieve significant energy saving and improved cell life
Shells Cells can be restarted with 20 to 50% higher current by the use of a booster rectifier and temporary busbars
RuC® Cathodes can be used to save energy, increase cell life, increase current efficiency, suppress the rodding operation and many more advantages
Our projects are supported by an extensive use of the best modelling tools available, covering:
Further topics include modelling of anode baking furnaces, signal analysis, gas emissions analysis, cell design improvements, engineering, project management and consulting.
Revolutionary cell design
Apart from specific modelling activities, KAN-NAK can also provide consulting services, covering many aspects in primary aluminium production, as well as in downstream business. KAN-NAK can bring to you an extensive knowledge of the aluminium production,acquired over more than 35 years of activity in that branch.
Just to be sure to provide the best consulting possible to you, KAN-NAK has also access to a strong network of seasoned professionals and consultants from all over the world.
