Metal Transfer - Foundry

As the demand for improved metallurgical properties in castings increases, requirements for the metal transfer process also grows. A number of methods are used to transfer metal from a melting furnace to a casting cell, including tap blocks, cones, plugs and troughs; pumps; troughs; and crucibles. Critical issues include melt quality, production efficiency, energy efficiency and worker safety.

Pyrotek focuses on improving metal transfer efficiency through a number of solutions, including mechanical pumps and the Pyrotek overflow transfer system (OTS).

Benefits include:

  • Improved melt quality
  • Increased production efficiency and reduced downtime
  • Reduced energy costs
  • Lower labour costs
  • Higher safety
