Secondary smelting and alloying of aluminum includes establishments recovering aluminum and aluminum alloys from scrap and/or dross (secondary smelting) and making billet, alloys, powder, paste, or flake from purchased aluminum. These are made using smelting or refining processes.
The global Secondary Smelting and Alloying of Aluminum market was valued at $41.7 billion in 2017. Asia Pacific was the largest geographic region accounting for $16.6 billion or 39.9% of the global market. And China was the largest country accounting for $8.7 billion or 20.9% of the global Secondary Smelting and Alloying of Aluminum market.
Silicon carbide has replaced graphite in the secondary smelting and alloying of aluminum market. Degassing rotors are used to process molten aluminium. Silicon carbide made degassing rotors has better anti-oxidation and wear resistance properties to make the new rotors work five times more than graphite-based rotors. New rotors are used to remove dissolved hydrogen as it is one of the main impurities which cause performance and strength issues in casting aluminum parts. It enhances quality, shows high performance and is cost effective. Morgan Advanced Materials, an engineering and manufacturing company, manufactured the silicon carbide made degassing rotors.
