Filter Size for Molten Aluminum Filtration

Filter Size for Molten Aluminum Filtration

The filtering effect of the AdTech filter plate depends on the pore size of the filter plate, the size and type of inclusions (density, wetting characteristics), and the speed of metal aluminum liquid passing through the filter plate.

Ceramic foam filters are basically divided into pore sizes: 20PPI, 30PPI, 40PPI, 50PPI, and 60PPI. The larger the number, the smaller the aperture. But in actual practice, the four types of 20PPI 30PP 40PPI can meet the needs of customers.

With the development of science and technology, and the improvement of the cleanliness of casting metal alloys, and the improvement of casting performance requirements, a new type of ceramic foam filter has been applied in casting production, which has brought great progress for molten metal filtration.

Impurity Removal in Metal Melt

The high-quality ceramic foam filter for casting plays a very important role in improving the quality of castings. It can effectively filter out the non-metallic inclusions in the molten metal, thereby reducing slag holes, improving the mechanical properties of the castings, and reducing the mechanical properties of the castings, improving the surface finish of castings and prolongs life.

AdTech foam ceramic filter uses polyurethane foam as a carrier. After hydrolysis, it is immersed in a coating made of ceramic powder, binder, sintering aid, suspending agent, etc., and then squeezed out the excess coating to make the ceramic coating uniform. It is coated on the carrier skeleton to form a green body, and then the green body is dried and fired at a high temperature.

We offer Ceramic Foam Filters in all common sizes: 7″, 9″, 12″, 15″, 17″, 20″, and 23″. We offer the whole range of porosities from PPI 10 up to PPI 60 (PPI = pores per inch). Custom-made cut-to-size filters are also possible.

30ppi 40ppi Foundry Filter is the most commonly used ceramic foam filter in the aluminum casting industry. Ordinary aluminum casting usually uses 10-40ppi ceramic filter plates. Aviation and high-quality aluminum materials usually use 30-60ppi ceramic filter plates.
