Foundry Practice 267

 
This edition highlights the latest developments in feeding and filtration technology within Foseco. In addition, we present an overview of the development of the SEDEX iron filter family. Good methoding needs reliable simulation technology, which we demonstrate with the newest release of the FOSECO Pro Module.
 

The articles:

ADVANCES IN THE POURING OF STEEL CASTINGS WITH A SHROUDED METAL STREAM

Turbulence during pouring and the generation of oxides are preventing high integrity steel castings to reach the highest quality performance standards and decrease fettling and repair time, and costs. Foseco has developed the HOLLOTEX shroud together with a novel bayonet system and a filter box to minimize turbulence in the pouring process. Several case studies demonstrate the benefits and cost advantages, which have been achieved as well as much faster process times.

SEDEX - ONE PRODUCT FAMILY WITH A RANGE OF PERFORMANCE PROPERTIES TO MEET DIFFERENT REQUIREMENTS

Even after more than 30 years of successful iron filtration with SEDEX “state of the art” iron filtration, the product family has developed further. This article demonstrates the benefits of SEDEX, SEDEX SUPER FLOW and SEDEX ULTRA, the selection criteria for the relevant filter and the advantages, which can be achieved by use of specific application examples.

NEW FEEDEX K TECHNOLOGY - VAK

Increasingly complex casting designs as well as faster and higher - pressure moulding lines require spot feeders with a high ability to resist moulding pressure. FEEDEX VAK technology is the latest generation of patented collapsible breaker core technology with a novel breaker core design, delivering highest feed consistency and lowest fettling costs due to reduced neck contact area.

VIRTUAL EXPERIMENTATION WITH THE FOSECO PRO MODULE

The latest developments in Foseco’s sleeve and recipe technology are integrated into the FOSECO Pro Module for MAGMASOFT®; facilitating virtual experimentation and delivering faster, more reliable and optimised solutions using the new generation of autonomous engineering tools.

PRECISION FEEDING IN LARGE CASTINGS

Jobbing iron applications are increasingly challenged by constructional changes which makes safe feeding practices difficult. FEEDEX SCK (Sleeve Construction Kit) technology has been developed to reduce feeder volumes and aperture areas to save fettling time and costs.
