Foseco offers the foundryman a complete range of silicon carbide and clay graphite crucibles, retorts and other specialised shapes for use in fuel fired, induction and electric resistance furnaces. Furthermore a broad range of monolithic and precast products are available for aluminium, zinc and copper melting and holding furnaces and Foseco personnel are on hand to offer advice on product selection, maintenance and design.
ENERTEK crucibles are a new family of energy efficient crucibles that have been formulated and manufactured to offer the most thermally efficient crucible for holding molten aluminium.
DURATEK crucibles offer excellent oxidation resistance and thereby give extended service life compared to standard crucibles
Premium quality, isostatically pressed crucibles for low temperature applications with good thermal conductivity and chemical attack resistance. Ideally suited for the melting and holding of aluminium as well as other low temperature applications.
Premium quality, isostatically pressed crucibles with good thermal conductivity. Suitable for a wide range of applications including the melting and holding of copper alloys, the melting of aluminium in flame fired furnaces, precious metals and zinc distillation.
DIAMANT Super Rapid and Super Rapid Special
Rotational moulded clay graphite crucibles with very good thermal, mechanical shock and chemical attack resistance.
Isostatically pressed crucibles with very high electric resistivity. Specially designed for use in high frequency and/or high power induction furnaces.
Isostatically pressed, carbon bonded crucibles with very low electric resistivity. Ideally suited for use in low- and medium frequency induction furnaces.
INSURAL for aluminium and zinc
INSURAL ATL is a range of insulating ladle linings suitable for aluminium and zinc foundries. They are supplied ready for use to transport molten aluminium and zinc alloys.
INSURAL precast shapes are also manufactured for use in low-pressure diecasting, Dosing furnaces and other Aluminium contact applications.
INSURAL 700 and INSURAL 800 pastes are highly insulating mastics which are used as adhesives but can also be used for repairs, make seals or for similar tasks. Ideally suited to aluminium and zinc, they can also be applied to other non ferrous alloys provided the temperature lies below 1000 ºC.
ZYAROCK and ZYACAST fused silica for aluminium
High purity fused silica preformed shapes such as pouring basins, shot sleeves, launders low-pressure diecasting tubes and ladles.
Castable Linings for Aluminium and Copper
TRIAD is a range of user friendly, no-cement castables with excellent non-wetting characteristics, erosion resistance and longevity. TRIAD 70AL is mulcoa based with low density and high resistance to aluminium penetration and is therefore ideally suited for channel holding furnaces, tower melters and low pressure diecasting furnaces.
ALUGARD is a range of materials specifically developed and designed to resist erosion and impact damage whilst retaining excellent non-wetting properties in aluminium alloys.
ALUGARD products also minimise the potential for corundum formation and growth in aluminium and associated alloys.
ALUGARD EXP is ideal for patch repairing furnaces and thin veneer repairs.
ZYACAST fused silica castable is a high-purity fused silica castable for the transport of aluminium alloys.
KALTEK ISO 60BF is a castable powder with an inorganic bonding system generated by an exothermic reaction suitable for copper base foundries.
ONYX is a range of alumina based low cement castables containing silicon carbide.
CRITERION is a range of high strength, low cement, abrasion resistant castables for the hearth and shaft.
