A wide variety of non-metallic inclusions can exist in aluminium as a result of its melting, alloying and processing steps. The presence of these inclusions can be detrimental and a major source of defects in the final product.
Ceramic foam filter
With the demand for high quality aluminium products increasing, filtration has proved an optimum method for improving metal quality.
CFFs are now specified for most casting operations and, as a consequence, filters capable of removing smaller and smaller non-metallic particulate are now being widely used. CFFs offer a practical and cost-effective alternative to existing systems.
GDS filters with high-performing are available in various sizes and grades to improve the molten metal quality and ensure that optimal filtration efficiency is achieved.
