Lead Smelting

Gravita India Ltd exclusively engaged in establishing Lead Smelting Plant by providing Technology, Plant & Machinery, Training of personals etc.

Gravita’s unique smelting technology has allowed the facility & opportunity to process a much wider range of industrial wastes and by-products than a traditional Lead recycling facility. The smelting Plant is fully integrated with pollution control modules and can be configured for a wide range of Battery Recycling Capacities.

Lead Smelting Process:

The Lead bearing material from Batteries, along with appropriate fluxes, reductants, Slag and other scrap & process wastes, is smelted in a Rotary Furnace depending on the product mix required e.g. hard Antimonial Lead, soft crude Lead etc. The Rotary furnace operate in a temperature range of 900-1250 degrees centigrade. We supply non tilting type Rotary designed as per the capacity requirement along with a customized complement of accessories and equipment. The rotary furnace configuration is decided after taking into account factors like, the smelting, refining and pollution control plant configuration, designed battery processing capacity, expected capacity utilization range, desired degree of flexibility in product mix, composition of locally available raw material, consumables etc.

Gravita’s furnaces are designed to minimise Sulphur-dioxide emissions in flue gases by conversion into non-leachable solid compounds to the maximum possible extent. The flue gases released are treated by the air pollution control plant, of our proprietary design, in which a typical configuration comprises of dust collectors, cyclones, cooling towers, spark arrestors, bag-house filtration units, induced draft fans (ID Fan), wet scrubbers and a chimney/stack. We provide detailed process fine-tuning and training inputs in the commissioning phase to ensure optimum functioning of our Secondary Lead Smelting Plant.
