Granulated Fused Refining Fluxes
General Introduction:
SATA granulated fused refining flux is a eutectic salt composed of mgcl2 anhydrous and potassium or sodium chloride. Which can removes alkali metal(sodium, calcium, lithium) and non-metallic inclusions (oxides, borides and carbides) from liquid aluminium and al-alloys. It’s in-furnace metal treatment flux.

The main chemical compositions of different fluxes based on Mgcl2 anhydrous, Kcl, Nacl, CaF2, Na3ALF6, K3ALF6 and etc. These raw materials are fused in a furnace to a high temperature, cooled and crushed. Compare to the powder mixed. Fused fluxes have a single sharp melting point rather than mixed powder flux has a melting range. The melting point belows 483℃. And some are free from fluorides, sodium, which is suitable for high magnesium al-alloy. Some fluxes has a very small amount of calcium fluoride added to MgCl2/KCl flux leads to a significant increase in the inclusion and alkali removal performance. The MgCl2 minimizes or eliminates surface oxidation by creating a thin-film layer on the metal surface, thus cover fluxes can be avoided if the refining flux contains enough MgCl2.


Advantage:
  • Eco‐friendly flux that reduce dust levels, meet the emission limits of most environmental regulatory agencies
  • Uniform size, reacts fully. Purify the melt improve melt quality.
  • Increases the extrusion speed and die life when extruding profiles
  • Reduces the number of breaks in continuous casting
  • Sodium-free flux suitable for high mg al-alloy eliminates edge cracks when rolling high Mg aluminium alloys
  • Free of fluorides. Zero fluoride emissions.
  • Low melting point for rapid dispersion
  • Effectively remove the aluminium slag and hydrogen, performance excellent on refining and drossing.
  • Addition and stirring of flux by means of flux feeder (with Nitrogen or Argon) gives the highest refining efficiency.
  • In the meanwhile, oxide inclusions can be separated from the melt, and generated dry slag (white dross),reduce metal loss.
  • Less dosage, high effectiveness, save cost for customer refining and degassing slag, it can protect and clean molten aluminium.
