The plant is acquiring a classifier mill HOSOKAWA Alpine (Germany). The installation of the new equipment will result in an increase in production capacity by 30% as well as launching a new range of ultra-high quality aluminium powders. This material is used in construction, in particular in the production of autoclave aerocrete.

The installation of the new Alpine equipment at SUAL-Powder Metallurgy is part of a broader modernisation of the aluminium powder production project.

As of today, assembly works are being carried out at the plant, scheduled to complete in January 2014. The new equipment will run at full capacity in August 2014.
