Manufactured by vaporizing zinc feedstocks and condensing the zinc vapor to liquid zinc prior to casting or refining, Horsehead Corporation utilizes electrothermic technology to electrically heat large, vertical, furnaces and convert the zinc present in zinc-bearing materials to gaseous zinc vapor. The zinc vapor is then drawn into a condenser where the temperature is cool enough to condense the vapor into liquid zinc. The molten zinc can be cast into slabs or transferred to other parts of the plant to be further processed for zinc dust or zinc oxide production.
