AMC 11 is a general purpose
Aluminium cleansing flux suitable for use at lower
C) in all types of furnaces.
FOSFLUX - AMC 11
Acts as a surface cover to
prevent oxidation and hydrogen pickup. Decreases the metal
content of the dross thus increasing yield and reducing
metal costs. Produces a dry easily removable dross. Is a
powerful oxide remover and reduces risks of defective
castings due to oxide inclusions. Is especially useful for
reverberatory and large molten metal ladles.
This flux has a wide
operating range and is particularly effective with metal
treated at low temperatures.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
An addition of 0.2% is
generally sufficient. However, the use of high scrap
charges or the addition of oily or dirty metal to the
charge may require larges amounts.
The flux may be
distributed over the molten metal surface after melt
down, or with high scrap charges add one half of the
flux with the scrap and the remaining half to the top
surface of the metal after melt down.
When the charge is
completely molten and the flux melted and well
distributed over the surface, the flux layer should be
rabbled into the molten to collect the oxides floating
in the metal and agglomerate these at the surface.
When the flux/oxide
mixture has dried to a powery dross, remove it with
perforated skimmers and collect it in reclaimers for
optimum metal recovery.
Available in 25kg bags.
