The Non Ferrous metal treatment area will feature the latest generation of Foseco FDU and MTS equipment – state of the art technology for the automated treatment of an aluminium melt. This innovative rotary degassing process is controlled by SMARTT, a software which is based on the recently developed Foseco Degassing Model that accurately simulates rotary degassing. The operator simply defines a melt quality level and SMARTT predicts the best treatment practice based on ambient conditions, melt temperature, rotor design and alloy composition. The treatment parameters are automatically transferred into the FDU MTS. In conjunction with innovative rotor designs Foseco guarantees a constant quality level and reliable results.
A new chemical grain refiner in granulated form can be added through the automated Metal Treatment Station. This new grain refiner offers many advantages such as improved melt fluidity during casting, reduced inclusion level and better mechanical properties. The dross remaining after the treatment is low in metal which additionally saves costs.
