EME upgrades batch plant at Encirc plant in Elton

After performing an audit on site to define the needs of the customer, EME identified the opportunities to improve the cycle time

EME successfully upgraded the batch plant at Encirc in Elton, UK, to feed the increased capacity of the new furnace.

After performing an audit on site to define the needs of the customer, EME identified the opportunities to improve the cycle time and determined the new equipment that was critical for the upgrade. The batch plant was modernized with the installation of this critical equipment and by modifying the control system to reduce the cycle time in order to guarantee the increased feed to the new furnace.

Another challenge overcome was feeding batch to the second furnace continuously during the batch plant upgrade.

In addition EME extended the cullet return system and now at the Elton facility a total of twelve EME scrapers are in operation.
