The DIAMANT® rotary degasser is the most significant advance in the technology of rotary degassing of aluminium alloys. The DIAMANT® degassing shaft and rotor have been developed to overcome normal shortcomings associated with rotary degassing since they are manufactured from ceramic bonded materials having high wear and oxidation resistance.
VESUVIUS VISOMELT™ immersion heater protection tubes are also available for heated degassing boxes.
VESUVIUS manufactures a full range of traditional porous plugs for aluminium furnace hearths and other purging applications. VESUVIUS is a leading developer of purging systems for both ferrous and non-ferrous metals and has recently developed the unique nitrogen or argon Gas Diffuser Block. This innovation comprises of a quality permeable material within a non-permeable surround, which eliminates the requirement for a metal case as used with more traditional purging blocks. This full ceramic plug design purges fine bubbles over a large surface area, improving gas interaction and overall metallurgy.
