“Zinc cathode production, due to the high currents involved and accelerated plating cycle, requires high levels of technical expertise on the process and equipment design which G Corner was able to offer to our client.”
This large-scale new zinc electrowinning refinery will produce 200,000 tons of electrolytic Zinc Cathode. Based on its extensive track record in the base metal refining industry G Corner worked on the initial design of the cell top furniture incorporating the long intercell equipotential busbars to our tight tolerances together with the end cell apron bars. G Corner supplied the equipment on time to the project which will be one of the largest new electrolytic Zinc refineries to be built in the Americas in recent years. G Corner was able to work on the design of the cell-top equipotential busbars providing high quality, precision-machined busbars for use with the automatic tankhouse cranes, where a high degree of accuracy is required for electrode positioning. We were also able to manufacture the refinery endcell apron busbars out of a single copper plate, resulting in better current distribution properties at the endcells.
