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