Why Vacuum

You need to reduce porosity and the scrap rate

VDS SA is your competent Partner

Porosity Origins

Flow Porosity

  • Air entrapment due to flow problems
  • Cause surface or internal defects

Gas Porosity

  • Entrapped gases caused by air, lubricants and separating agents
  • Aluminum in the liquid phase has a high solubility of hydrogen, when freezing the dissolved hydrogen creates bubbles

Process Optimizing to reduce Porosity

  • Reduce spraying to the necessary minimum
  • Temperature regulation must be precise along the metal flow line to avoid early freezing
  • Use ring piston system
  • Precise Dosing
  • Reduce the hydrogen content in the melt to a minimum – furnace in-line degassing
  • Lower speed at the gate
