Flow-Rite® Foundry Filters are available for iron and non-ferrous applications. A large variety of sizes are available.
Benefits of Flow-Rite FC Filters for Foundries
Effectively remove non-metallic inclusions in metal castings
Reduced turbulence in the metal stream decreases oxide formation and mold erosion
Reduced casting scrap rates and customer returns
Improved as-cast surface finish
Improved casting machinability and reduced tool wear
Highly optimized runner system for improved yield
Wide range of standard sizes
Custom sizes and configurations available
DIMENSIONAL AND STRUCTURAL CONSISTENCY
Unlike some filter types that have a random foam structure, the cellular structure of FlowRite filters is identical from one filter to the next, ensuring a high degree of consistency from pour to pour.
CoorsTek facilities are ISO certified and offer numerous capabilities to ensure your metal casting products are made to spec and delivered on time.
Compaction tooling tailored to a customer’s specifications
Multi-axis CNC machinery, heat treating, wire and plunge EDM and other services
It is recommended that the runner’s system choke, not the filter, limit the flow rate of the molten metal. The total usable filter area should be larger than the system choke.
Minimum Recommended Ratios:
3 to 1 for gray iron
4 to 1 for aluminum and copper based alloys
5 to 1 for ductile iron
Note: Flow rates and total flow capacity vary with metallostatic head, metal temperature, metal cleanliness, and metal composition
