15" Filter Box Commissioned

01 March 2016

Ontecom has commissioned its first 15" double filter box at RUSAL's Bratsk smelter. The filter box aims to filter liquid aluminium alloys from nonmetallics, improving their quality. The filter is equipped with a pneumatically driven rotary cover and a convection heating system to preheat ceramic foam filters. The launders have an in-built heating system to preheat the refractories, aiming to reduce heat losses in the beginning of casting.
