Foseco Preview 2

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

Filtration for Iron and Steel Foundries

The demand for improved casting integrity and performance continues, often associated with the need to reduce casting weight. The benefits provided by molten metal filters are increasingly valuable to casting producers and their customers in achieving these goals.

In addition to enhancements to the range of SEDEX and STELEX filters that offer foundries enhanced choice and performance characteristics in filter application, Foseco will be launching a new filter technology for large, high value steel castings.

The HOLLOTEX shroud filtration system combines the known benefits of STELEX filters with a fused silica shroud.  This innovative technology provides a method of protecting the molten steel as it is poured from a bottom pour ladle into the mould and casting cavity.  Aspiration of air is eliminated reducing re-oxidation inclusions and enhancing the performance of the integral filters. An application case study will detail the major improvements that this process can facilitate in the production and quality of highly specified castings.

Recent developments in the SEDEX and STELEX product portfolios offer foundries increasing choice in filter products that they can use. The attributes of these products will be compared so the user can understand the associated benefits and select the correct filter type for their casting needs.

Foseco will be showing many case studies demonstrating the benefits provided by applying SEDEX and STELEX filters to a variety of iron and steel castings. These will be complemented by MAGMASOFT simulations which model the molten metal flow control and turbulence reduction that are vital to achieving high finished casting quality.
