Welcome to our Insight blog where you will find stories and announcements that pertain to the industries Pyrotek serves, from aluminium to zinc galvanizing to glass to acoustics to battery materials and more.
At 2.5 tonnes capacity for molten metal, a Pyrotek Ceramite® Dual-Cast Crucible transfer ladle is the largest in use today at any foundry in Western Europe. It’s currently performing successfully for premium automotive foundry in Germany.
Automotive Assembly Plant in Mexico Selects Pyrotek’s Rigid Glasweve® Filters as Standard Filter for Casting Cylinder Heads
The aluminium foundry at a major automotive operation in Mexico is now using Rigid Glasweve (RGW) filters as part of its cylinder head casting process, finding after a large-scale trial that RGW reduced scrap compared with the use of ceramic foam filters (CFF).
Foundries that perform permanent mould casting and sandcasting processes today are taking advantage of yet another innovation from Pyrotek—its new Rigid Glasweve® (RGW) filtering technology.
Rigid Glasweve® (RGW) filters have been chosen as the preferred filter for the casting process, in a sand-casting application, at a major automotive parts caster in Spain, Saint Jean Industries – Valladolid (SJI).
“Our single-chamber furnace is smaller than the dual-chamber design, and by fitting under a casting station they don't take up additional floor space,” says Tomáš Mazálek, Foundry Furnaces Project Manager for Pyrotek’s Blansko Engineering Center.
Stop losing heat and allowing profits to slip out the side of your tempering furnace. Regain greater control of temperatures inside your furnace. Pyrotek’s roller-end, side-seal refractory shapes deliver both greater efficiency and control.
Pyrotek recently developed a dual-chamber overflow transfer system (DC OTS) that can deliver consistent, smooth low flows of molten aluminium from a furnace to downstream processes.
Pyrotek has developed a new filtering product for foundries called Rigid Glasweve™. This patent-pending rigidized fibreglass sprue filter helps low-pressure casting aluminium foundries save money by internally remelting their own sprue returns—without sacrificing metal quality.
