Ceramic Riser Tube

September 12, 2012

StrikoWestofen, Wiehl, Germany, developed a ceramic riser tube with a steel flange.

StrikoWestofen, Wiehl, Germany, has developed a ceramic riser tube with a steel flange that allows easy installation and a precise fit to guarantee a long service life. The dosing process of the Westomat furnace series is based on an overpressure in the interior of the furnace, giving the riser tube an important function. From then, it supplies the mold or casting machine with melt as required and saves up to two-thirds of the energy required by automatic ladle systems. The technology also guarantees a high-quality melt with no oxide inclusions.
