Amperage creeping projects are key milestones to improve productivity of aluminum smelters. They are also opportunities to upgrade vibrocompactors to the state of the art. In 2014, two smelters in the Gulf awarded to Fives contracts to upgrade their vibrocompactors to the most advanced eco-design standard. This paper details the return on experience (ROE) of these challenging and successful projects in terms of overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) and Environmental performances including: • Availability of the complete paste plant increased thanks to the reliability and space out maintenance requirements. • Best Quality Anodes produced with the incorporated features: Dynpac, Accurate Dosing system and integrated vacuum solution allowing high density and low standard deviation. • Shortest proven cycle time per former, demonstrating once more Fives' unique capacity of high throughput equipment. • Advanced eco-design solutions meeting also expectations in terms of noise and fume capture.
