Stripping machine, Electrolysis division (94K)

Autoclave, Precious metals plant (39K)

Centrifuge string, Copper sulfate recovery division (28K)

The shop consists of the following divisions:

  • Electrolytic refining of copper is based on the unsupported process (permanent titanium cathode plates and an associated stripping machine) which was the first to be used in Russia. Following the introduction of this process at the plant, we have achieved a marked improvement in cathode quality, reaching an average copper content of 99.997%. Processes of washing, stripping, stacking, weighing and bundling of the cathodes are performed automatically with the use of a cathode stripping machine (Manufacturer: Wenmec System OY, Finland).
  • Copper and nickel sulfate recovery division makes use of the state-of-the-art Russian technology incorporating vacuum crystallizer units. This approach enabled us not only to improve the copper sulfate quality, but also helped to create better conditions of work and ecological safety. Instead of the mixed copper-nickel salts produced formerly, the division started making very pure nickel sulfate (grade "pure") for electroplating industry in 1997.
  • The precious metal plant. The production process is based on the Finish technology and uses Finish process equipment (Manufacturer: Outokumpu Wenmec OY). The plant used only to pretreat the slime separated from the anode during electrolytic refining. Presently gold and silver in ingots, platinum and palladium concentrates as well as technical purity selenium are produced with the use of the precious metal recovery system. The Kyshtym experts have developed and introduced production processes to make tellurium, platinum and palladium as separate metals in the form of powder. Practically all the processes in this division are computerized.
