Copper Slag Services

With global operations, TMS International offers slag pot carrying services to copper producers around the world. Although each individual smelter has its own unique configuration and layout, we have the appropriate machinery, engineering and capabilities to provide industry proven solutions with safety as our priority.

We carefully study the operations of each facility to custom design a comprehensive program for transporting copper slag.

Our services include:

  • Transportation
  • Pot Carriers for molten slag, blister and matte
  • Slag Cooling
  • Slow cooling process for proper metal segmentation and collection of a usable product
  • Slag Processing
  • Screening & Crushing
  • Metal Recovery

TMS' KWIK Cooling™ process reduces the required method of cooling non-ferrous material from 60 hours to 12 hours by using its proprietary cooling vessels (CV). Once filled with slag, the CVs are placed in specifically designed cooling stations. After 12 hours, the CV is tipped and the matte and slag are separated.
