Molten Metal Processing
HA-International's Wedron Flux Processing System provides the aluminum casting industry with a complete line of functional systems designed to produce a cleaner, stronger casting – faster. Our products and technical services are also environmentally friendly for molten metal processing. The Wedron Flux Processing System includes: fluxes including eco-grades, fully automatic lance & rotary injection machines, and rotary degassers. Our flexible system can be tailored to your individual production needs.
- New drossing, clearing and degassing fluxes for copper based alloys. Eco grades reduce porosity by removing dissolved gasses in your copper based alloys. Simple plunge applications are very effective in reducing your scrap rate.
- Our new Zinc flux can be used on emersion tube melting and holding furnaces without corrosion concerns.
- HA-International has the only non-reactive commercial grade LEAD flux. Reduce the metallic content of your dross. Weight reduction saves not just alloy, it's an ergonomic savings. A reduction of up to 40% in weight will reduce operator injuries.
- Our Rotaflux and Injection systems have been upgraded and now have the ability to harvest data. Now you can find out what happened on third shift two weeks ago. Our systems record all functions or each cleaning and degassing cycle:
- Retained Data Options
- Operator Identification
- Ladle or Furnace Identification
- Time and Date
- Gas Flow Rates
- Flux Addition
- Rotor Speed
- Rotor Amp Draw Indicates Performance
- Cycle Times, Injection & Purge
Pure and Simple
The old adage “Garbage In Equals Garbage Out” applies to molten metal processing. That’s why it’s so important to start your casting process with clean, oxide and hydrogen free, molten aluminum.
With Wedron Flux in your metal preparation process, you can produce cleaner degassed alloys, reduce the overall metal content of your dross, and keep your furnaces running clean and efficient. One pound of flux can retain / recover 10-15 lbs. of molten aluminum, keeping it in your furnace not in the dross pan.
The end result is a cleaner, stronger casting alloy.
