ELTAP™ Furnace tapping materials
The ELTAP™ materials have been developed through a wealth of knowledge and experience within the pyrometallurgical industry. From the early 20th century, Elkem has been designing and operating pyrometallurgical smelters.
ELSEAL™ Cathode ramming paste
Our range of ramming pastes has been developed for use in aluminum electrolysis cells. The main purpose, both in the joints between the cathode blocks and in the peripheral seam, is to fill the voids between the prebaked blocks and prevent metal and bath from penetrating the cathode. Leakage of metal and electrolyte damages the cathode and may lead to premature pot failure.
ELMON™ furnace lining materials
ELMON™ is a concept for monolithic, jointless linings, with a special stop layer for gas, temperature, and metal. This reduces temperatures and gas pressures in critical areas of the lining, which contribute to a much longer lifetime.
ELSEP™ Søderberg electrode paste
In 1919, Elkem patented Søderberg electrode, a self-baking electrode which revolutionized the smelting industry. The method is called the Soderberg electrode, after the electrical engineer Carl Wilhelm Søderberg (1876 – 1955), who got the original idea.
Elkem has developed its own production technology for prebaked electrodes. Special raw materials are chosen and electrically calcined, to achieve the best properties.
