GIFA 2019, the most important trade fair in the world for the foundry industry will be held on 25-29 June 2019 in Düsseldorf, Germany. Together with the with GIFA Forum, this represents an ideal opportunity to get an overview of the latest trends and technology developments for the foundry industry.

At the Foseco booth, visitors will discover new, innovative solutions for iron, steel and nonferrous foundries. We look forward to seeing you on our stand in Hall 12 Stand no. 12A01.



Flow Control for Iron and Steel Foundries

Foseco will highlight the latest technologies available for controlling the metal flow in steel ladles and autopour iron applications.

We will show alternative steel ladle lining and flow control systems for both cold start and hot start ladle systems.

TRIAD Z lining system is a new generation of castable that bring long lining life. TRIAD Z are no-cement castable with superior hot strength properties and slag resistance. The drying procedure before usage takes half the time compared to conventional low cement castable.

Foseco will show the KALTEK board system for bottom pour ladles, a unique lining system that requires no pre-heating. The KALTEK board system is suitable for ladles up to 25T capacity and more for specific projects. A new generation of KALTEK board multi-life system has been introduced to the market to combine the KALTEK board properties (no pre-heating, metal cleanliness, insulation) with a KALTEK set that can be used up to 5 times and allow thermal cycles and nozzle exchange.

Foseco’s new, VISO isopressed zoned nozzle offers the steel foundry a multi-life nozzle for improved productivity.  The zoned nozzle uses a combination of different refractory systems to enhance strength and performance, thereby enabling repeated use of the nozzle in a steel foundry ladle.

Furthermore, we will show the latest flow control technology for grey and ductile iron, especially for unheated pouring boxes. Here, we will show a range of design and refractory combinations to meet the requirements of a variety of auto pour applications.
