Online Aluminum Melt Processing with Degassing and Filtering

During the casting process, online aluminum melt processing is necessary. The aluminum alloy melt flows through the online degassing device and the online filtering device from the orifice of the holding furnace, and then enters the distribution plate for hot-top casting.

Online Aluminum Melt Processing

The main points of online aluminum melt processing are as follows:

(1) Add grain refiner online. In front of the melt inlet of the online degassing device, a wire feeder is used to add the grain refiner into the launder, and the aluminum alloy melt is processed for online refinement.

(2) A graphite rotor online degassing device is used to perform online degassing of the aluminum alloy melt.
The degassing medium is high-purity argon, and its purity should be> 99. 90%; the rotor speed is controlled at 250-280 r/min; the compressed air flow is controlled at 4-4.5 m^3/h.

(3) Using 30 PPI and 50 PPI ceramic foam filters to conduct dual-stage online filtration of the aluminum alloy melt.

(4) During the casting process, the hydrogen content in the alloy melt was measured in the launder with a hydrogen meter, and the hydrogen content was measured when the ingot length was 1 m, 3 m, and 5 m.
