Molten Aluminium into the Launder
Launder systems are an essential part of any casthouse. Well designed launders contribute to a smooth and efficient casthouse operation where fast transfers between furnaces are of key importance. Clean, low-turbulence casting launders play a significant role in producing high quality products.
Launders are sized and rated to meet the required transfer and/or casting capacities. Features and accessories may include laser launder level control systems for (semi) automatic melt transfer and automatic casting operations, high-level metal probes for anti-spill safety, launder thermocouples for fine-tuning the molten metal temperature during casting, etc.
