FILTEX™ Alumina FOAM FILTER
FILTEX™ Alumina FOAM FILTERS
Alumina Ceramic Foam filters mainly for filtration of aluminum and aluminum alloys in foundries and cast houses. With their excellent resistance to attack and corrosion from molten aluminum, they can effectively remove inclusions, reduce trapped gas and provide laminar flow, and then the filtered metal is significantly cleaner. Cleaner metal results in higher-quality castings, less scrap, and fewer inclusion defects, all of which contribute to bottom-line profit. Apply to improve the quality of aluminum alloy and other non-ferrous alloy casting. Improve metallurgical structure Enhance mechanical properties Change turbulence into laminar flow.

Alumina Ceramic Foam Filters is available in all standard dimensions and different thickness. We offer the whole range of porosities from PPI 10 up to PPI 60 (PPI = pores per inch). Custom-made cut-to-size filters are also possible.
Alumina Ceramic Foam filters common sizes
Alumina Ceramic Foam Filters is available in all common sizes: 7″, 9″, 12″, 15″, 17″, 20″, and 23“.
Alumina Ceramic Foam Filters Gasketing
Alumina Ceramic Foam Filters is equipped with a gasket on the edges. The gasket assures the proper and tight position of the filter within the filter box. There are different types of gasket available, e.g. Ceramic fiber gasket etc. Also you can choose CFF-AL without gasket.
