ABSTRACT --- Equipment and processes that maximize dross recovery
generated during melting operations, and the global technologies that reduce dross
generation in the furnace are examined. Dross processing techniques that help
cool hot dross for maximum recovery are discussed. Preprocessing scrap properly
and the pretreatment of materials to lower dross generation are addressed. All
aspects of reducing dross and maximizing its recovery are highlighted.
