HACC / Hot Aluminium Crucible Cleaner

The Proven Technology for Rapid and Efficient Cleaning of Crucibles.


How It Works

Crucibles need to be cleaned on a regular basis due to accumulated deposits of bath material and aluminium products on the inside walls and bottom, which progressively reduces the capacity of the crucibles. Crucibles are often cleaned manually or with machines after cooling to room temperature, which involves more time, more money as well as refractory damage; in addition, operators are exposed to excessive noise and dust.

The HACC / Hot Aluminium Crucible Cleaner is a cleaning machine that cleans crucibles (ladles) rapidly at any temperature. Since the equipment operates in automatic mode, there are considerable savings as compared with manual operation. Single and dual head HACCs are available (for metal and bath crucibles).

Optional Features

  • Rotating platform to facilitate maintenance of cleaning head.
  • Integrated spout cleaning device.
  • Dust collector and ducting.

Key features

Productivity improvement

  •  Cleans crucibles at any temperature.

  •  Same machine cleans one or two different sizes of crucibles.

  •  Best cleaning cycle time.

  •  Extends refractory life due to uniform cutting action.

  •  Optimized cleaning heads that minimize sticking of aluminium and bath accumulation.

  •  Tool design that allows adjustment of cleaning diameter.

  •  Dust rakes that can be adapted to crucible diameter for optimum dust removal.


  Low Operation and Maintenance Costs

  • Highly wear‑resistant tool bits design to minimize costs in terms of consumables and maintenance (cleaning head).

  • Electric rotation drive of the cleaning head provides significant energy savings with equivalent cleaning performance than hydraulic drive.

Safe Operating Environment

  •  Eliminates exposure of operators to dust and hot particles.

  •  Efficient hood system for dust containment.

  •  Efficient noise reduction measures.
