HomeBlogs Mentok Tin Smelter The Mentok smelting plant was built in March 1963 and completed in
February 1967 by a German Company "Klockner Industrie Anlagen", spending
the total cost of USD 2.6 million. This is the only smelting plant in
Indonesia. Here the famous Bankatin is made. A short visit to the
factory will give us an idea of how the tin one is smelted, which is
done at a temperature of about up to 1,350 Â°C.
