Foam Ceramic Filter Alcan Inc is mainly used for aluminum and alloy filtration in foundries and cast houses.
Due to its excellent resistance to corrosion and liquid aluminum, the filter effectively removes inclusions, reduces residual gases and ensures laminar flow.
As a result, the filtered aluminum metal is significantly cleaner, and the metal can produce higher quality castings with less waste and fewer inclusion defects
Foam Ceramic Filter Alcan Inc has the following benefits, all of which help increase profits.
– Reduce waste associated with inclusions.
– Reduce costs associated with inclusion defects.
– Increase productivity through higher extrusion or rolling speed.
– Increased casting flexibility, easy to change the alloy.
