Altech Chemicals Appointed Drytech as Kiln Supplier

Altech Chemicals Limited has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Drytech International for its high purity alumina (HPA) project.

Drytech is a South African based company specialising in the manufacture of dryers and high temperature kilns for global processing plants. Drytech has developed a strong reputation in the local market and internationally for providing innovative design solutions to thermal processing projects. Drytech will supply the company’s kaolin dryer and calciner at its proposed Meckering beneficiation plant, as well as the aluminium chloride roaster and HPA calciner at its proposed Malaysian HPA plant. Altech Chemicals Limited is aiming to become one of the world’s leading sup­pliers of 99,99 % (4N) high purity alumina (HPA). HPA is a high-value product because it is the major source material for scratch-resistant artificial sapphire glass. Sapphire glass is used to produce a range of high-performance electronic applications such as LEDs, semiconductors, phosphor display screens, as well as new emerging products such as smartphones and tablet devices. The global HPA market is approximately 19 040 t/a (2014) and is expected to at least double over the coming decade.
