We produce variety and high quality Flux, based upon the requirements of customer and type of alloy. Here is the link of list of flux.
Function of Flux
Aluminum has lots of advantages, such as light weight, corrosion resistance, good work-ability, recycling efficiency compare to any other metal. Therefore aluminum alloy are using for variety of applications in different market segment.
In aluminum casting, not only sophisticated cast design, but precise control of chemical composition is also required.
If molten metal quality is bad, application may have defect and we cannot use final product, even if you made perfect casting die design. Controlling molten metal is the key of the production.And the selection of good/suitable flux is necessary factor to control molten and produce your high-quality application.
Selection of Flux
We regard following points to be important for the selection of flux.
１）Purpose of use (e.g. skimming, Degassing, Improvement of metal quality, structure refinement, remove the contamination and inclusions,,, etc.)
３）Molten metal temperature
４）Environment-Conscious products, accepting criteria of smoke generation or generated gas
Here is the link of list of flux.
In order to using flux, please double check the temperature of molten metal and input volume of flux.
Distributing flux homogeneously and making contact molten metal as much surface of flux are the key to get efficient chemical reaction. So please make sure to rotate the molten metal after injecting the flux into molten metal.
Below points are also important for metal quality control.
１）Well select the required chemical composition for target alloy and make sure that unnecessary chemicals are not contained.
２）Remove the toxic gas (e.g. H2), inclusions, and oxidation contamination as much as possible.
３） Temperature control of molten metal and operation time control.
Once you clear all above factors and controlled the metal quality, let’s focusing also the commercial impact about consumption of Aluminum ingot and fuel additionally.
