Foseco is the global leader in feeding system products because our products have the highest thermal and feed performance available. And, because Foseco’s feeding aids are carefully made in very reliable processes, feed performance is particularly consistent.
The application of Foseco feeding solutions avoid shrinkage defects and improve casting yields, reducing the amount of non-productive metal poured. Significant savings can also be made in fettling and cleaning operations.
KALPUR Direct Pour Technology
The KALPUR direct pouring process is the combined use of a feeder sleeve and ceramic foam filter. It is suitable for hand-moulded castings, and horizontal and vertical automatic moulding lines. The KALPUR process entirely eliminates the need for a conventional running system.
KALPUR AL is the combination of a SIVEX FC filter with an insulating feeder sleeve and is used for optimising the production of aluminium castings both in sand as well as in die-casting foundries.
KALPUR for Aluminium XP are reverse taper direct pouring systems for aluminium castings that can be applied on automated horizontal moulding lines.
KALPUR for copper combine insulating feeder sleeves with SEDEX ceramic foam filters.
KALMIN Insulating Feeder Sleeves for Aluminium
KALMIN sleeves are insulating, lightweight riser sleeves used to efficiently feed castings. These sleeves are highly resistant to dilation and provide superior insulating characteristics, with low smoke and fume. The use of riser sleeves increases casting yield by allowing smaller riser sizes than conventional sand risers and reduces cleaning costs.
KALMIN Insulating and KALMINEX Exothermic Insulating Sleeves for Heavy Metal Casting
KALMIN lightweight general purpose insulating sleeves for use in copper casting. They are especially suited to applications where exothermic reactions create metallurgical problems, gas defects and other reaction problems.
KALMIN 77 is a range of highly refractory cylindrical and oval feeder sleeves ideally suited to copper applications especially those with heavy sections.
KALMINEX 2000 are accurately formed, highly exothermic and insulating shapes suitable for feeding heavy metal castings.
KALMIN 5251 NF are inhibited insulating tube sleeves for more efficient feeding of magnesium casting.
TEMPGARD riser sleeves are strong, low-density, tubes of insulating refractory fibers. They are specifically designed to promote efficient feeding of sandcast aluminum and copper castings.
FEEDOL Anti-piping Compounds
FEEDOL exothermic powders are used as anti-piping compounds to improve feeding efficiency. They are applied to the surface of risers on aluminium and copper base castings to reduce heat loss to the atmosphere and extend solidification time.
