Aluminium Ceramic Filter
Aluminium Ceramic Filter is produced basing on carrier with solid reticular structure and combined organic foam pores.
The Filter is installed in the filter bowl for filtrating impurity in molten aluminum alloy, which helps to meet the requirement of production in high value-added, high-tech performance aluminum alloy precision casting, such as computer hard drive, PS baseboard for printing, canning materials, fan blades for turbojet engine, etc.
The producing procedure is as below, put carrier into the thixotropic alumina slurry, adopt square to center correcting automatic extrusion process, so that slurry evenly deposits in foam skeleton of carrier, after drying solidification, then carrier will turn into final product by roasting formed under 1180 ℃ high temperature.
Aluminium Ceramic Filter Advantages
Adopt adsorption principle for Alunima Foam Filter, can effectively remove big piece inclusions in molten aluminum, and effectively adsorb tiny inclusions.
Automatic flow production，3 calibration procedures，precision size，fit the filter bowl tightly.
Improve the surface appearance and performance, purify molten aluminum.
No broken bits drop out, effectively reduce the pollution of molten aluminum.
Superior thermal shock resistance, improve erosion resistance ability of molten metal.
Aluminium Ceramic Filter Sealing Gasket
Ceramic filter is surrounded by Sealing gasket, laying between filter and filter bowl, to prevent molten aluminum leaking through interface. AdTech’s filter adopts sealing gasket in 3 different types, fiber paper material, fiber cotton material, expanding cotton material.
Standard sizes for Ceramic Foam Filter
Dimension (±3mm): 7x7in 9x9in 12x12in 15x15in 17x17in 20x20in 23x23in 26x26in
Bevel Angle: 17.5±1.5°
Special Dimension: square, rectangular, round, trapezoidal, abnormal, or customized as per the requirement.
Aluminium Ceramic Filter Instructions
Use electric or gas burning to preheat filter bowl and ceramic foam filter evenly for 15-30 minutes, make sure their temperature close to molten aluminum. The preheating temperature for ceramic foam filter should above 260℃. Expanding cotton will seal after preheating. This procedure makes ceramic foam filter steady fixed in molten aluminum. Preheating also leads ceramic foam filter pores open and avoid occlusion caused by thermal expansion and contraction.
Inspect and clean the surface of filter bowl, keep it clean and intact.
Gently lay the filter in the filter bowl, press sealing gasket around the filter by hand to prevent molten aluminum from dispersing or floating away.
Observe the change of molten aluminum height, hold molten aluminum flow in standard needs. Normal starting molten aluminum height is 100-150mm. The height falls down below 75-100mm when molten aluminum flows, and it will slowly increase later.
Do not hit or shake ceramic foam filter in filtration. At the same time, control molten aluminum flow rate in launder, never to be too much or too little.
Take out ceramic foam filter and clean filter bowl in time after filtering.
