Industrial Filtration for the Aluminum Industry

Aluminum is produced by the electrolytic process that reduces alumina to the element form. The metal is then alloyed and cast into ingots for further downstream processing into sheet, coil, plate and other forms. This manufacturing process generates dust which may include aluminum powder, oxides and other chemicals.

SUN Filter’s sales and technical teams have 20+ years of experience in the metals industry, and are well positioned to analyze the dust problem and determine the optimal solution to meet the needs of any aluminum industry.
