Materials and melting units

  • Liquid metal is produced in an accurate way: in modern rotary drum furnaces
  • Smelting furnaces:
    • SOGEMI 12 t rotary drum furnace
      • output 12 t of LM/batch
    • HTT 5 t rotary drum furnace
      • output 5 t LM/batch
  • Metallurgy equipment for production of spheroidal graphite cast irons:
    • PROGELTA metallurgy station
      • modification – filled profile
      • inoculation – filled profile
      • max. processed volume of LM - 5 t-6 t
  • Natural gas and oxygen burner and control system from AIR PRODUCTS
  • Ductile iron (SGI) is produced using a filled profile metallurgy station with suction and two feeders for modification and inoculation profiles (Progelta It.).
  • All batch materials used have a certified quality.
  • The composition of liquid metal is monitored as follows in order to meet all applicable standards:
    • by Tasman Q4 spark emission spectrometer integrated with the OPTI foundry management system
    • by turbidity tests in order to verify inoculation results
    • by metallographic polishing (subcontracted)
    • by thermal analysis for interpretation of metal cooling curve (subcontracted)
  • Castings are produced from the following materials:
