Ceramic Foam Filter

Ceramic Foam Filter

Ceramic Foam Filter Plate For Casting Aluminium

Ceramic foam filter (plateis organic foam sponge with three-dimensional network structure and connected pores is used as the carrier, which is infiltrated into the special ceramic slurry with thixotropy, and a special rolling process is adopted to make the ceramic slurry evenly spread on the skeleton of the carrier, and then finished by roasting at high temperature after drying curing.

There are two types Edge Covering:

1. Asbestos---Normal

2. Fiber Paper---Normal

3. Expanded Vermiculite---Superior


Alumina foam ceramic is a kind of foam material made from high purity alumina. The foam ceramics have the characteristics of uniform porosity, high temperature resistance, heat shock resistance, wear resistance and chemical stability.

Widely used in casting processing, water treatment, chemical industry, environmental protection and other industries. It is the ideal liquid aluminum filter; Catalyst support, and good sound insulation, thermal insulation material. Product shapes, sizes, and voids PPI can be designed and manufactured on request.

Normal Dimensions: 178×178×50mm, 230×230×50mm, 305×305×50mm, 381×381×50mm, 432×432×50mm, 508×508×50mm, 584×584×50mm, a total of seven main specifications of foam ceramics Filter plate products.

A selection range of 10ppi coarse porosity to 60ppi very fine porosity, so there will always be a product standard that suits your requirements. Both ordinary sizes and special sizes required by customers can meet the requirements.

Liquid aluminum is purified by Alumina Ceramic Foam Filter Plate

Ceramic Foam Filter Plate For Casting Aluminium


1. Filtration makes the flow of molten aluminum more orderly and relatively calm;

2. Solid slag in the molten metal is effectively removed, and the quality of castings is rapidly improved.

Quality Assessment Factor

1. Transmittance---Light transmittance refers to the effective filtering area of the foam ceramic filter plate product. The higher the transmittance, the fewer blind holes, the more effective filter holes (display holes), and the better the filtering effect.

2. Porosity---Porosity refers to the percentage of the total volume of pores in the filter plate product to the total volume of the filter plate product. The porosity determines the filtration capacity of the foam ceramic filter plate per unit volume. The larger the porosity, the greater the filtration flow of the filter plate and the stronger the filtration capacity, and vice versa.

3. Pore uniformity---Pore uniformity is used to describe the difference between the actual number of pores per 25.4mm length in the filter plate product and the theoretically required number of pores. The smaller the gap, the better the product quality. If the gap is too large, the filter plate product will reduce the retention capacity of impurities or the filtration speed of the melt is too slow, which cannot meet the individual requirements of users in production. The size of the pore uniformity mainly depends on the foam used in the production of the filter plate. The pore uniformity of the foam is good, and the pore uniformity of the filter plate is good, so the selection of the foam is extremely important.

4. Compressive strength---The higher the compressive strength, the more durable the product, the better the quality, and vice versa.

Diagonal line allowable variation(mm)±5±7±9
Plane clearance allowable variation(mm)≤3≤6
Thickness allowable variation(mm)±2

Side rake allowable variation(°)±1°

Remarks:1. Diagonal deviation refers to the difference between the lengths of two diagonals on large surface of filter plate.2. The plane gap is to place the large surface of filter plate on platform, and measure the gap between filter plate and platform.3. Side bevel refers to the angle between side bevel and large surface.4. The filter plates involved in the table are all products with a theoretical thickness of 50mm and a side inclination angle 17.5°.

Quality Inspection
