Midal supplies the world market with rod cast from the molten aluminium delivered direct from the Aluminium Smelter adjacent to its plant (Mozal). The liquid aluminium is super pure (minimum 99.7%) which allows Midal to cast an exceptionally high conductivity rod. Midal’s EC grade and alloy rods are sold around the world as well as being used ‘in-house’ to manufacture a full range of overhead conductors and aluminium wires. Midal also supplies rods of various mechanical alloys.
Midal’s quality starts with super pure high grade liquid aluminium delivered to our furnaces. During delivery, the molten metal is tested and alloying is carried out if alloy rod is to be produced. The melt is channeled from the furnaces onto a rotating casting wheel where it partially cools and solidifies into a continuous bar. The bar is then passed straight into a no twist rolling mill to reduce it to a 9.5mm or 12mm rod which is coiled ready for the wire drawing process.
