FEECO offers a variety of custom equipment and process solutions for the processing of aluminum in its various forms and derivatives. From decoating scrap aluminum to pelletizing crushed aluminum, we can develop a process solution that fits your needs, as well as engineer and manufacture the equipment needed. All FEECO equipment is engineered around the unique characteristics of aluminum. We have experience with many forms of aluminum, including:

  • Aluminum Chips
  • Aluminum Fluoride
  • Aluminum Hydroxide
  • Aluminum Oxide
  • Aluminum Silicate (Andalusite)
  • Aluminum Trihydroxide
  • Atomized Aluminum Powder
  • Scrap Aluminum
  • Alumina
  • Bauxite

Material Processing

Pelletizing & Compaction

It is often desirable to agglomerate aluminum into a more workable product. FEECO offers a variety of equipment and systems for this purpose, including roll compactors, disc pelletizers, and pin mixers, as well as complete aluminum pelletizing systems.

Decoating Kilns

In addition to our agglomeration equipment, we offer decoating kilns for use in the aluminum scrap decoating process.

 

Rotary Dryers & Coolers

We can also provide heavy-duty rotary dryers and coolers for processing aluminum materials.

 

Material Handling

FEECO also provides a comprehensive line of material handling equipment for all of your aluminum handling needs. We offer custom bucket elevators, belt conveyors, reversing shuttle conveyors, and steep incline conveyors, along with pieces to increase the flexibility of your handling system, such as belt trippers and plows, and belt feeders.

 

We can supply a single piece of handling equipment to fit into your existing process, or a complete handling system as part of an overall process solution.

 

Plant and Pilot Scale Process Testing and Design

The FEECO Innovation Center is a unique testing facility where we can test your material at both batch and pilot scale in order to work out process variables and design commercial-scale units, as well as scale up the process.

 

The FEECO Innovation Center is well-equipped to suit a wide range of testing needs, including pelletizing, compaction, drying, and decoating. We can test on a single piece of equipment, or a continuous process loop.

 

We offer comprehensive testing services in four categories:


Feasibility/Proof of Concept: An initial, non-witnessed batch testing phase in which the possibility of creating a product is explored.
Proof of Product: A more in-depth batch testing phase in which more time is spent determining whether a product can be made to desired specifications.
Proof of Process: A continuous testing phase that aims to establish the equipment setup and parameters required for continuous production of your specific material.
Process/Product Optimization: An in-depth study to optimize your specific material’s characteristics and/or production parameters in an industrial setting.
