Argon Recycle for Alloys & Specialty Metals
The life cycle of high performance alloy components involves multiple steps and large quantities of wasted, but recoverable, argon. Whether for batch processes - like HIP and Heat Treatment - or semi-continuous streams - like Atomization or AOD - Arencibia Associates has the experience and track record to reduce your argon expenses and bring meaningful value to your alloy operation.
It's Your Argon. Keep It.
Systems can be provided through flexible supply agreements, including capital sale, lease, fee-for service and hybrid arrangements. Whether you own and operate the system or we do, the alfa ARS at your site sets total value benchmarks for cost performance, risk reduction, as well as community and environmental benefits.
Each alloy facility is unique. While the fundamental alfa ARS technology is the same, we tailor the plant to meet your specific operation. Typical alfa ARS sites will achieve 0.5 - 1 million dollars per year - or more - of operating cost reduction. This translates into
- Meaningful operating margin and ROCE improvements
- $1 argon. Customers who own their alfa ARS can achieve decades of supply reliability and real unit costs of argon that are less than $1 per 100-SCF.
- Measurable and sustainable improvements to your company's EPS
