Ekumax Automated
Dross Skimming Station

Mecfor Evolution



your investment


Mecfor's Ekumax station is recognized as the industry's worldwide standard. Once the operator starts the skimming cycle, the station automatically places and slowly rotates the preheated skimming tool inside the crucible. Dross is recovered from the molten metal surface, and the waste material is then placed in a recuperation bin.

The Mecfor team of experts can help you put together a compelling business case for the Ekumax, and lay out the financial justification for your investment. They will also be happy to provide references from satisfied customers.
