The molten metal cleanliness is one of the main challenges for most foundries. They must produce slabs with a sufficiently low content of hydrogen, alkali metals and inclusions to make the final product suitable for its end-use. This is especially important when rolling slabs into sheets used to make beverage cans or foils.
It is necessary to combine the use of the right equipment and ensure correct operation to properly manage the cleanliness of the molten metal.
Initial Molten Metal Cleanliness
First, it must be ensured that the melting and holding practices used before casting are as close to best practices as possible. The higher the cleanliness of the molten metal before the degassing/filtration operation, the higher the cleanliness after treatment. Some key areas that usually require careful management are:
Purchase primary metals, hardener materials, and scrap from verified/qualified sources
- Add alloying elements at the correct temperature
- Degrease thoroughly and clean the stove regularly
- Take appropriate solutions
- Minimize metal turbulence, especially in the transfer launder
