Argon

Argon, an inert gas, can provide an excellent barrier to oxidation of the melt surface.

Inert Gas Blanketing Systems

Our patented vortex sprayer or swirl cone technologies can help you blanket your melt surface and lower your operating costs. Both technologies help prevent metal oxidation and gas pick-up by displacing the atmospheric oxygen and water vapor with a dry and inert argon or nitrogen atmosphere. By reducing metal oxidation, our proprietary technologies can help you reduce yield loss and improve melt cleanliness and quality resulting in less rework and scrap. With our blanketing technologies, you may be able to use 50% less gas than conventional molten metal blanketing techniques. Our applications engineers can determine which blanketing technology and type of inert gas should be the most effective and economical for your operation.

Process Management System

You can effectively track operating trends with our advanced methods for data collection and process monitoring. This insight can help you identify areas for improvement so you can achieve more consistent results and lower operating costs. Our systems can automatically generate reports for the data that is most critical to your operation and notify key personnel of deviations from process set-points or targets.
