||United Metals has taken the initiative and installed 125,000 MT per year. Continuous cast and rolled copper rod plant in collaboration with Southwire, USA, this is the largest plant through the Middle East and North Africa. With the globalization of world economy only the best companies will survive to meet. United Metals has adopted an aggressive approach towards their mission
Our Name Must Represent Quality To Our Vendors, Ourselves, And Our Customers.
Continuous Improvement Is Our Target.
ASTM – B49- 1998
The plant operates continuously & is largely automated. Melting, casting, rolling & other steps in the production process are monitored automatically using computerized control. All important parameters are continuously tested to provide quality product.
The following tests below ensure the rod produced is of consistently high quality:
Oxygen test: This determines the oxygen content in copper. An oxygen determinator (Leco Instrument) gives the amount of oxygen present in copper in ppm
Chemical composition test: Analysis for chemical composition of both the cathode and final product is done using instrument.
Surface oxide measurement: Electrolytic removal of the surface oxide is used to determine the type and thickness of the oxide scale
PH measurement: To ensue nonacid corrosion free soluble oil using Ph meters
Gas analysis: Solutions used in soluble oil pickling solution are analyzed for alcohol content using a chromotography instrument
Conductivity: Precision instrument measures the conductivity of copper
Twist test: The rod is twisted back and forth ten times each and is then visually inspected
Elongation & Tensile test: The rod is tested for elongation at fracture and for tensile strength
Diameter checks: These guarantee that the rod are correctly round and of the required diameter
