The Intelligent Coating Unit (ICU) automates the process of measuring and controlling the dilution of refractory coatings to ensure the correct consistency is maintained and the properties required for optimum application are achieved. The process is continuous; ensuring that there is minimal coating variability throughout the day and eliminating operator dependence. Controlled coating density is the most reliable parameter in ensuring the applied layer of coating is at the correct thickness, which in turns leads to the best casting surface finish achieved consistently and repeatably.
