One of the major concerns in the modern aluminium casting industry is aluminium alloy cleanliness. With the ever increasing demands for improved casting properties, the requirements for molten metal cleanliness has become extremely stringent. The removal of dissolved hydrogen and unwanted particles from the melt using rotary degassing has become a widely used foundry practice.
Molten Metal Systems has developed a one piece silicon carbide rotor and shaft for use in this process. The Molten Metal Systems' rotary degassing rotor has a high resistance to wear in service and has excellent anti oxidation properties providing a cost effective consumable for use in foundries’ degassing processes. This degassing rotor can be supplied in a range of sizes to suit customers' applications.
