High-Temperature Metal-Halide Reduction

Many metals can be produced by reducing a metal halide with sodium. Aluminum, titanium, tantalum, and silicon are among the metals commonly produced by reduction of a metal halide with sodium. These reactions are usually done at very high temperature and present unique engineering challenges for process control and equipment design. CEI’s engineers have experience designing and operating such systems at our facility in New Freedom, Pa. CEI’s depth of experience in alkali metals and high-temperature reactions make the company exceptionally qualified to engineer these type of systems. Our engineers are available for process design, equipment design, commissioning, operations, and automation.
