Presentation Title The "Alcoa Filter System": A Cost Effective Solution for Enhanced CFF Performance
Author(s) Robert Dumont, Jean-Francois Desmeules
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Robert Dumont
Abstract Scope Ceramic Foam Filtration is a well known process for effectively removing inclusions from the molten metal in DC casting. It has however limitations for the removal of small particles. Filter pads with fine pores are available but the priming is more difficult. Solutions that have been developed to improve priming of the fine pore filter pads are complex and expensive. A new priming technique was developed and tested both in laboratory and plant conditions. Excellent filtration performance was attained. It gives the possibility for the casthouse to produce value added products with great flexibility and cost effectiveness. The technology is now available for plant implementation.
