Technical Services & Audits

Technical Services

Providing outstanding technical services to our customers is an important concern to us, and in fact one of our core businesses. Often we are challenged by our customers to increase the production rate or improve product quality with minimal or no investment. Our services range from technical support for the production of all carbon materials, to plant audits and process optimizations. In our technology centre we conduct pilot or bench scale trials and any kind of laboratory analysis with detailed evaluations. We analyze shipment samples according to standardized ISO methods for certification of the specifications or for arbitration purposes.

Technical assistance to world wide active trading companies are an important way to improve anode and cathode qualities supplied to the World market. The "Swiss Made in China Quality Model" together with our American partner Aminco Resources LLC is an example of successful ten years cooperation with more than one million tons of anodes produced and exported to customers around the globe.

In the past ten years R&D Carbon has received worldwide recognition in all smelting groups as the authoritative institution to conduct anode plant audits. Systematic plant assessments in an independent, purely technical manner focus on those areas that have a potential for improvement with the ultimate goal to reduce aluminum production cost. RDC offers Audits focusing on Anode Plant Production and Performance. We also offer a "Process Optimization Program for Paste Plants" (Dynamic Process Optimization, DPO) a "Furnace Process Optimization" (FPO) as well as a „Dynamic Calciner Optimization" (DCO).
