Alumina Foam Ceramic Filter Plate for cleaning the molten aluminium
Alumina Foam Ceramic Filter Plate is used in the Aluminium metallurgical industry and foundry to clean metal melt from non-metallic inclusions and oxide films, which helps to eliminate many shortcomings, improve the quality of the metal, reduce the amount of scrap during casting and also solve other production problems.

Alumina Foam Ceramic Filter Plate Product description
Increasing the uniformity of the internal structure of the metal;
Improvement of mechanical properties;
Elimination of metallurgical imperfections (gas sinks, porosity, leaks);
Surface quality improvement;
A significant improvement in the machinability of products, reducing the cost of their processing;
Decrease in quantity of marriage.
Ceramic foam filters of three-dimensional structure of various shapes (circle, oval, rectangle, square), sizes, thicknesses (12-50 mm) and porosity (8-70 ppi – pore per linear inch) are offered, depending on the needs and requests of customers.
Filter application temperature – up to 1700 ° C (with short-term use, higher temperatures are also possible). To ensure optimal filter efficiency, they must be preheated.
Three types of ceramic foam filters are offered, which are made on the basis of:
aluminum oxide (for filtering aluminum at temperatures up to 1150 ° C);
zirconium dioxide (for filtering steel, as well as alloys based on nickel and cobalt, at temperatures up to 1700 ° C). Special application – casting of magnesium;
silicon carbide (for filtering ductile and ductile iron, as well as non-ferrous metals at temperatures up to 1420 ° C).
For particularly critical products, duplex filters can be used, the distinguishing feature of which is the combination of two types of porosity in one filter of a standard size: porosity PPI 10/30 with sizes from D 100 * 25 mm.
It is possible to use filters at various points of the foundry system: horizontally or vertically along the way, at the base of the gate or profit.
In addition, when casting, due to the three-dimensional structure of the filter, the metal flow is effectively stabilized, the form is filled more smoothly and evenly. Due to this, the deoxidation of the metal in the mold, as well as the erosion of the moldable mixture, is significantly reduced.
