Reduce Melt Loss AND Reduce Your Carbon FootPrint!

Surface dross generation rates are affected by several factors including: Metal Temperature – Often “dominates the equation” above 730°C (1350°F). Surface Area – Can be moderated by a heavy argon cover gas. Turbulence – Induced by flow and mechanical systems, increases effective surface area. Direct Incorporation – Mechanisms that force gas and dross below the metal …
