Ma’aden Aluminum Company is a joint venture between Ma’aden and Alcoa that operates the largest vertically integrated aluminum complex in the world. This paper will focus on the four (4) Gas Treatment Centers that were supplied by Fives to treat the gas of the 750 kTPY aluminium Smelter.
The Ma’aden GTC are among the largest in the world. The paper will review the special features of the TGT-RI GTC such as the use of hairpin ducts to cool the potline gas, the YPRIOS dual flow system to minimize potroom emission and the use of HF gas monitor at the outlet of each filter compartment to improve the tracking of scrubbing performance. It will also present the performance achieved after two years of operation, the minor corrections that were made to improve the reliability of some components and field improvements that could be reused on future projects.
