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.
Pyrotek is recognized globally as a design-and-build leader of advanced control panels for electric heating systems, gas combustion systems, and other automated control systems.
As manufacturers have had to reduce the number of in-house technical staff members they employ, they have grown increasingly more reliant on Pyrotek and other vendors for engineering and technical expertise.
Pyrotek’s Scrap Aluminium Melting System (SAMS) is helping secondary aluminium recyclers around the world have a safer, smoother, and more controlled process for melting low-density, light-gauge aluminium scrap.
Aluminium industry plants around the world have found they can improve their operational efficiency and increase profitability by using launders made with Pyrotek’s advanced strength Ceramite material, which is manufactured in a variety of blends for every specific application.
Many aluminium foundries and casthouses around the world rely on Pyrotek’s compact and portable Zen heater units to preheat refractory parts and other operational components.
In a charge of 40,000 pounds of prime aluminium T-bar or ingot/sow, he saw a reduction of melt times from 7 hours to 4 hours. He also saw an increase in production of 35,000-70,000 pounds in the first month of use.
Pyrotek reinforced fiberglass material (RFM®) drain-out pumps are helping world-class foundries around the world more effectively empty holding and melting furnaces.
The dual-chamber underheated low-pressure furnace utilizes a divider wall and stopper rod to isolate the holding chamber from the pressure chamber. This allows dross generation from charging to be isolated to the holding chamber.
Pyrotek has published the January 2019 edition of the Aluminium Insight newsletter. Aluminium Insight offers industry stories and Pyrotek features, from the smelter to the foundry.
