Silcarb manufactures High Aluminium Titanate products for Foundry Applications.
Silcarb manufactures high-density Aluminium Titanate at its plant in Bangalore. All Aluminium Titanate products that Silcarb manufactures are isostatically pressed. This material has a unique combination of thermal and physical properties. They are made by combining highly pure aluminium oxide and titanium oxide into a microporous material by a precision-controlled sintering process. Due to the presence of porosity and properties like low thermal resistance, the component has very good thermal shock resistance. The Aluminium Titanate products produced has poor wettability with molten metals which makes it ideal for foundry and metallurgical applications. These are then dried and fired in our state-of-the-art Sintering Furnaces to temperatures of 1500°C.
The Aluminium Titanate ceramics are available in different product forms and can be customized to different standard sizes and geometries to suit a variety of application. Some of the products we manufacture are:
- Foundry moulds.
- Protection tubes.
- Special components.
- Stalk tubes and riser tubes.
- Dosage tubes for dosing furnaces.
- Closing system and Stoppers for controlling the flow of molten masses.
Some of the advantages for Silcarb manufactured Aluminium Titanate are:
- The energy efficiency of the casting process.
- It increases the component service.
- There is no decomposition of melt by degraded products of the ceramic.
- Increases the overall efficiency of the casting plant.
- It has low mechanical stress.
These Titanate tubes can be used for LPDC stalk/riser tubes, HPDC dosing tubes and other metal contact applications. Silcarb manufactures these tubes with its new imported isostatic press from Autoclave USA and it’s in house high-temperature sintering furnaces. These tubes have high thermal shock resistance and low wettability. Silcarb manufactures these tubes in the required dimensions with all necessary accessories such as flanges as per customer requirements.
