FOSECO: Ferrous Melt Shop

Reading time: min

The Foseco INITEK ductile iron process eliminates the undesirable side effects of the inescapable but harmful addition of Mg into the metallic matrix and permits a significant reduction of the Mg alloy addition. Furnace and pouring temperatures can be significantly reduced.
Other highlights include melt charge optimising software, thermal analysis and “state-of-the-art” metal stream inoculation technology.
The techniques and linings used for metal melting and transfer have a major impact on casting production. They affect the casting quality, productivity, energy consumption, and carbon footprint of the casting producer.
Foseco now offer a full range of solutions for metal melting, ladle transfer and casting pouring. A variety of exhibits will demonstrate the latest furnace linings; TRIAD easy to install cement free refractory systems; KALTEK low density ladle linings for cold start applications and VAPEX and VISO stopper rod and nozzle systems.
