MACHINERY INTERNATIONAL CORPORATION IS PLEASED TO OFFER A MODERN PLANT



FACILITY TO MANUFACTURE UP TO 5000 METRIC TONS OF COPPER ROD PLUS



4500 METRIC TONS OF COPPER TUBE ANNUALLY USING THE UPCAST SYSTEM. THE PLANT,



WHICH WAS INSTALLED WITH MOSTLY NEW MACHINERY IN 1996, HAS THE CAPACITY TO



TRIPLE THIS PRODUCTION USING THE EXISTING DOWNSTREAM MACHINERY BY ADDING



ADDITIONAL CASTING CAPABILITY, SUCH AS TWO ADDITIONAL UPCAST UNITS.



THE MACHINERY CAN BE PURCHASED SEPARATELY FOR RELOCATION FOR THE PRICE WHICH



WILL BE SENT TO YOU IF YOU REQUEST A QUOTE. HOWEVER WE CAN ALSO SELL YOU THE



LAND AND BUILDINGS, AND YOU CAN START UP AND RUN THE PLANT ON SITE ALMOST



IMMEDIATELY. THE PLANT IS LOCATED IN AN INDUSTRIAL PARK IN MEXICO, WHERE LABOR



COSTS ARE VERY LOW. IT WAS DESIGNED TO BE DEVELOPED IN FOUR STAGES. ONLY



STAGE 1 WAS COMPLETED. THE FOUNDATIONS HAVE BEEN POURED FOR STAGE 2. THE



ADJOINING LAND FOR STAGES 3 AND 4 ARE AVAILABLE. THUS THE PROPERTY CAN BE



PURCHASED FOR AN ADDITIONAL PRICE FOR RAPID START-UP AND EXPANSION ON THE



EXISTING SITE.



TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE FOR INSTALLATION AND START-UP EITHER ON THE EXISTING



SITE OR AT A NEW LOCATION IS AVAILABLE FOR AN ADDITIONAL COST. A DESCRIPTION



OF THE MACHINERY FOLLOWS.

2. OPERATION DATA



2.1. PRODUCTION CAPACITY

A THREE-SHIFT WORKING SYSTEM IS REQUIRED IN THE LIGHT OF PARTICULAR WORKING



CONDITIONS AND ECONOMICAL FEATURES.

- OUTPUT: 5,000 T

- No. OF RODS: 8

- DIAMETER OF THE ROD: 20mm

- OPERATION TIME:

52 WEEKS, 8736 HOURS IN A YEAR

SEVEN DAYS A WEEK, 168 HOURS

THREE SHIFTS A DAY, 24 HOURS



OPERATION TIME DOES NOT INCLUDE THE TIME SPENT ON REPLACING GRAPHITE DIES



OR CRYSTALLIZERS AS NORMAL MAINTENANCE.



2.2. POWER SUPPLY

BY PRODUCING EACH ONE-TON OF ROD, THE UPCASTING MACHINE CONSUMES ELECTRICITY



AT 380 KWH/T APPROXIMATELY.



THE AUXILIARY MACHINES, NOT INCLUDING THE FURNACES, CONSUME 85 KW

MINIMUM INPUT POWER OF THE STAND-BY POWER SUPPLY: 150 KW



THE ABOVE DATA WAS MEASURED WHEN THE MELTING FURNACE IS AT ITS BEST WORKING



STATE WITH MAXIMUM POWER. IF THE FURNACES ARE WORKING AT A LOWER RATE, THE



CONSUMPTION OF ELECTRICITY CAN BE HIGHER BY EACH UNIT OUTPUT. DURING NORMAL



OPERATION, IF POWER SUPPLY STOPS FOR A LONG TIME, THE MELTED COPPER IN THE



FURNACE WILL FREEZE AND WILL DAMAGE. THEREFORE, THERE IS A DIESEL POWER



GENERATOR IN THE PLANT, WHICH STARTS AUTOMATICALLY OR MANUALLY.



2.3. COOLING WATER SUPPLY



2.3.1. NORMAL OPERATION

WHEN COPPER ROD IS BEING CAST, THE COOLING WATER MUST BE SUPPLIED TO THE



INDUCTOR OF THE FURNACE AND THE CRYSTALLIZERS OF THE UPCASTING MACHINE.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ACHIEVE A SATISFACTORILY COOLING RESULT.



CONSUMPTION OF COOLING WATER:

- INDUCTORS OF FURNACES: 14m3/H

- CRYSTALLIZER OF UPCASTING MECHANISM: 14.4m3/H

- PRESSURE OF COOLING WATER: 0.3 ~ 0.6 MPA

- MAXIMUM INLET WATER TEMPERATURE: 32 DEG. C

- MAXIMUM RETURN WATER TEMPERATURE: 55 DEG. C



2.3.2. WATER REQUIREMENTS:

- MAXIMUM CONTENT OF PARTICLES: 10mg/L

- PH VALUE: 7 ~ 9

- HARDNESS: 3 ~ 5 DH

- MAXIMUM THICKNESS OF CL ION: 10mg/L

- MAXIMUM THICKNESS OF S ION: 50mg/L

- MAXIMUM THICKNESS OF FREE CL: 3mg/L

- MAXIMUM CONDUCTIVITY (COOLING WATER FOR INDUCTOR) 300m SIEMENS/CM



2.3.3. EMERGENCY WATER SUPPLY

AS INSUFFICIENT COOLING WATER WILL CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE EQUIPMENT, TO



GUARANTEE THAT THE COOLING WATER SYSTEM WILL NOT PAUSE FOR OVER 60 SECONDS,



AN EMERGENCY WATER TANK IS INSTALLED FOR INCASE OF A BREAKDOWN. THE EMERGENCY



WATER TANK IS ENOUGH TO OPERATE THE UP-WARD CONTINUOUS CASTING UNIT. THE



SYSTEM WORKS WITH GRAVITY.



EMERGENCY TANK CAPACITY: 12,300 LITERS-12m3



CONSUMPTION IN CASE OF EMERGENCY:

- MINIMUM CONSUMPTION BY INDUCTORS OF FURNACE: 5m3/H

- MINIMUM CONSUMPTION BY CRYSTALLIZER: 3m3/H

- PRESSURE FOR WATER: OVER 200KPA



AN ADDITIONAL AIR-COOLING SYSTEM WAS ADDED TO EACH INDUCTOR, TO MINIMIZE



POTENTIAL TROUBLES DURING NORMAL OPERATION



2.3.4. SPARE PARTS IN STOCK

GRAPHITE DIES FOR ROD PRODUCTION, CRYSTALLIZERS, QUICK JOINTS,



THERMOCOUPLES, INDUCTORS, COPPER RINGS FOR INDUCTORS, LINING MATERIALS,



GRAPHITE FLAKES, GRAPHITE LAUNDER, ALUMINA SILICATE PROTECTION SLEEVES,



CARBOFAX PROTECTION COLLAR, AMONG OTHERS.
