THE MOST ENERGY EFFICIENTEQUIPOTENTIAL INSULATOR

  • Electrowinning technology in copper refineries 
    From 2150 kWh per EW copper ton to 1750 kWh per EW copper ton
  • Electrorefining technology in zinc refineries 
    From 3800 kWh per ER zinc ton to 3100 kWh per ER zinc ton
  • Single-Piece
  • No Maintenance
  • No Repairs

The Ecolectrik equipotential insulator is a solution that creates value with its no-short-circuit and 4-contact-point technologies. It is custom-built to suit your needs, along with being energy ef cient and having an operational lifetime that can exceed 18 years. The Ecolectrik is made from thermoset blends and alloyed resins. It is reinforced with berglass mat, polymer concrete and full-length single-piece pultruded rods and rebars.

The Ecolectrik is fabricated with North American-made ECR berglass, and is an essential component of our insulators. It allows us to increase all thermomechanical properties in a distinctive way. This type of berglass offers electrical resistance, the mechanical strength of a type E berglass, and the chemical resistance of a type C or type A berglass.

 A SOLUTION  THAT CREATES VALUE

  • Operational lifetime can exceed 18 years
  • Lifetime of anodes and cathodes extended 3 to 4 times
  • Equipotential contact bar can last up to 18 years
  • Level of precision over operational lifetime:

    – On a 10,5 meter length: ± 2 mm c/c
    – Anode to cathode, side-by-side: ± 0,3 mm c/c

  • Permanent electrode alignment
  • Excellent protection against electrical leaks over operational lifetime
  • Mechanical, dielectric and chemical properties upheld throughout operational lifetime
  • Greater purity and quantity of re ned metals
  • Superior mechanical stiffness properties
  • Advanced structural design, chemical composition, and engineering

“We estimate energy savings of US$48 for every ton of copper produced in Chile.”

– Robert P. Dufresne, President

CONTACT INSULATORSFOR HYDROMETALLURGICAL REFINING

For More Info







SINGLE-PIECECONTACT INSULATORS

Custom-built to the exact length of your cell. They will not extend, and will always protect cells, anodes and cathodes.

ELECTROLYTICS CELL

Single-piece contact insulators with greater resistance to corrosion and short circuits.

DOUBLE THE LIFETIME OF CELLSAND TRIPLE THE LIFETIME OF CATHODES AND ANODES

  • No need for constant cell repair
  • No need to change contact insulators
  • Cathodes and anodes last 12 years instead of 4

Save on maintenance costs!

EASYTO REPLACE

  • Contact insulators are lifted, removed and replaced by a one-piece insulator
  • Production downtimes are drastically reduced

INCREASE PROFITABILITYAND BOOST PRODUCTIVITY

  • Increase the lifetime of anodes and cathodes
  • Reduce your maintenance fees
  • Avoid having to change your contact insulators every year

“We are very impressed with the dimensional consistency of the capping boards, and we never got to imagine completely that such tolerances were possible.”
