Metal Transfer - Casthouse



Transferring molten aluminium is a critical step within the casthouse process. Maintaining metal temperature and preventing oxide buildup are key to ensuring a high-quality end product. A number of methods can be used to transfer metal: transfer pumps, troughs/launders and crucibles.

Pyrotek's global network of application engineers work with customers to determine the best equipment and materials for molten metal transfer, from custom hydraulic transfer ladles to patented pump designs to heated trough systems.

Metal transfer solutions can:

  • Improve melt quality
  • Increase production and reduce downtime
  • Save energy costs
  • Reduce labour costs
  • Improve safety
