Major Foundry in Spain Installs Pyrotek Degassing Units to Optimize Metal Treatment

MAPSAlogoMAPSA, the largest wheel caster in Spain, has just expanded its metal treatment technology with new Pyrotek aluminium degassing machines. Compared with other units on the market, Pyrotek's machines ensured repeatability in the metal density.


Pyrotek’s newly engineered degassing machines automatically read metal temperature and air humidity and adjust the degassing cycle based on those readings. This allows them to consistently deliver stable density, and also ensure critical metal cleanliness.

There is a lot of pressure on wheel casters in the competitive European market and others around the world. They must all improve operational efficiency, and the best way to do that is by using leading technology like Pyrotek's advanced degassing machines.

"It's the best product on the market for metal treatment in the low-pressure process," says Saul Gracia Villacampa, Pyrotek Foundry Division Manager for West Europe.
