Non Ferrous Metal Treatment
In recent years, a number of new features and technologies have been added to the Foseco FDU and MTS equipment range – the state of the art in technology for the automated treatment of an aluminium melt. SMARTT software offers various programs for rotary degassing and the operator simply defines a melt quality after treatment.
SMARTT predicts the best treatment practice based on ambient conditions, melt temperature, rotor design and alloy composition. The treatment parameters are automatically transferred into the FDU MTS.
In conjunction with innovative rotor designs Foseco guarantees a constant quality level and reliable results. SMARTT not only controls degassing but together with forming gas any defined hydrogen level can be reached. A customised report system records all parameters.
The chemical grain refiner in granulated form can be added through the automated Metal Treatment Station. This grain refiner offers many advantages such as improved melt fluidity during casting, reduced inclusion level and better mechanical properties. The dross remaining after the treatment is low in metal which additionally saves costs. The dosing equipment uses a gravimetric load cell to ensure highest dosing precision for best metallurgical results as well as repeatability and traceability.
Shaft and rotor design are continuously improved to offer high efficiency in degassing at long service life.

Monolithics also now play a significant role in modern aluminium foundries. Foseco’s ALUGARD low-cement castables and TRIAD no-cement castable contain a new aluminium “non-wetting” additive giving excellent resistance to corundum development across a wider temperature band, while the dry-vibratable lining KELLUNDITE is ideally suited to coreless induction melting furnaces.
