Ceramic Foam Filter ALSCON Aluminum has a three-dimensional interconnected network structure with high porosity, large slag collecting surface area, large filtering internal surface area, low flow resistance, and good filtering effect.
The ceramic foam filter for foundry has excellent resistance to molten aluminum erosion and corrosion, can effectively remove inclusions, reduce residual gas and provide laminar flow, and the filtered metal is significantly cleaner. Cleaner metals can produce higher quality castings, less scrap and fewer inclusion defects, all of which help increase profits.
Ceramic Foam Filter for ALSCON Aluminum Filtration
-Reduce waste related to inclusions.
-Reduce costs related to inclusion of defects.
-Improve productivity through higher extrusion or rolling speeds.
-Increase casting flexibility, easy to replace alloy.
Ceramic Foam Filter is mainly used in the filtration of aluminum and alloys in ALSCON Aluminum foundries. Ceramic Filter Foam has its characteristics of light-weight, high mechanical strength, large specific surface areas, high porosity, excellent thermal shock resistance, erode resistance, high-performance, competitively priced, is designed for filtering impurities from liquid metals.
The Nigerian aluminum smelter, ALSCON, located in Ikot Abasi, Akwa Ibom State, will stimulate the country’s entire economy. The Akwa Ibom state government will work with the federal government to ensure that the aluminum plant is restored to life. Governor Udom Emanuel has announced.
The governor stated that once full operation resumes, the smelter will create jobs for approximately 2,000 Nigerians. He has ensured all necessary support on behalf of the government to ensure the normal operation of the factory.
ALSCON is one of Rusal’s assets in Africa, including an aluminum smelter, a gas-fired power station and a port on the Imo River in Nigeria.
RUSAL acquired a controlling stake in ALSCON in 2007. RUSAL owns 85% of ALSCON and the remaining shares belong to the Nigerian government.
ALSCON was established in 1997 and ceased operations in 2000. After acquiring a controlling stake in ALSCON, Rusal modernized the facility.
