Protective gas systems for the magnesium industry
Lightweight building materials are more in demand today than ever before, particularly in the automotive industry, the electronics industry and in the area of aerospace engineering. Magnesium is the lightest metallic construction material, and consequently it is particularly well suited for industrial lightweight construction.
Many die cast parts are manufactured of magnesium. For this, magnesium is melted in a furnace and cast in moulds. Because magnesium can react intensely in the presence of air, a protective gas atmosphere is strictly required in the smelting furnace for the hazardous smelting process. And this is precisely where our technology is used ...
For more than 10 years, our systems have been safeguarding the magnesium smelting process worldwide. The following products are used for this:
- Precision gas mixer for producing the required protective gas atmosphere
- Dosing systems for ultra-precise dosing and distribution of the protective gas in the smelting furnace
- Analysers for monitoring the protective gas atmosphere
Due to our many years experience in the area of gas analysis and gas filling technology, we have been able to develop new technologies for the area of protective gas systems, with due consideration of all safety-relevant requirements.
