Sow Casting



In sow casting metal is transferred from ladles into large steel moulds where the metal cools and solidifies. The sows are then typically sold and remelted in secondary aluminium processes. Optimized production efficiency depends on mould lifetime, solidification time, mould release, ingot quality and reduced scrap.

Pyrotek solutions help optimize productivity and scrap reduction. Products include ingot moulds, coatings and release agents, gaskets and seals, as well as thermocouples. Our global network of manufacturing centres and technical experts work with foundry ingot casters to determine the products and materials that will best suit their needs.

Benefits include:

  • Improved productivity
  • Reduced scrap
  • Customized solutions
