Pyropore Ceramic Foam Filters
Pyropore ceramic foam filters (CFFs) are high-quality filters used in molten aluminium, copper-based alloys and ferrous metals including grey, ductile and steel alloys. Pyropore CFFs are efficiently remove oxides and non-metallic particles.
Pyrotek's Pyropore ceramic foam filters are proven, high-quality filters which provide ultimate molten aluminium filtration. Constructed of high-strength ceramics, Pyropore provides a superior metal filtration. Ceramic foam filters are easily installed and provide an excellent solution for the removal of oxides.
There are four different types of Pyropore ceramic foam filters:
- Partially stabilized zirconia (ZrO2) ceramic filters
- Silicon carbide (SiC) filters
- Aluminium oxide (Al2O3) filters
- Aluminium oxide with graphite
Ceramic foam filters can be used in many processes, including:
- Sand casting
- Investment casting
- Shell casting
- Low-pressure casting
- Permanent mould casting
- Holding and transfer systems
