Dubal to showcase technological innovations
Dubai, March 6, 2012
Dubai Aluminium (Dubal) will showcase its technological excellence when it takes part in the TMS Annual Meeting and Exhibition (TMS 2012) in the US next week.
Being held at the Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida, from March 11 to 15, the focus of TMS is on providing materials science and engineering professionals the opportunity to network, present research, share industrial applications and introduce innovation.
Two senior executives from Dubal will present technical papers, both of which will also be published in Light Metals 2012.
The presentations are:
• “The successful implementation of Dubal DX Technology at Emal” — Michel Reverdy (technology transfer manager) will present this paper, which outlines the fast-track, in-house development of the technology plus the relatively rapid installation and commissioning of 756 Dubal DX Technology cells at Emal Phase I, the normalisation of which was achieved without incident.
“DX+, an optimized version of DX Technology” — Abdulla Al Zarouni (technology development manager) will present this paper, which describes the continued self-development of proprietary aluminium reduction technologies at Dubal, specifically the evolution of DX+ Technology and its selection for implementation at Emal Phase II.
Dubal will also have a stand at the exhibition component of TMS 2012.
Dubal will highlight the specific benefits offered by high amperage Dubal Reduction Cell Technologies. These include superb productivity at exceptionally high metal purity levels; greater energy-efficiency which contributes to energy conservation and associated operating cost reductions; reduced environmental impact through lower fossil fuel consumption and reduced carbon consumption; and fully engineered versatility, which allows for enhanced operating capability plus inherent potential for developing even higher amperage performance capacity.
Commenting on Dubal’s involvement in TMS 2012, Abdulla Kalban, president and CEO of Dubal, said: “In our opinion, the annual TMS meetings offer a strong and credible forum for sharing technology-related information with a broad audience representing diverse stakeholder groups.” -TradeArabia News Service
