Gas and Inclusion Measurement Equipment : "Volcester"

This is quick and high acuraccy aluminum quality inspection equipment to check the gas volume and existence of inclusion in the molten aluminum.
So performance of degassing treatment can be check before starting the casting.

Volcester STD: W800 x L550 x H1150(mm), 150kg

1. Consistent contents for Volcester

Concept of Volcester: Let the contaminated gas and inclusion / oxidation out from aluminum molten metal by vaccum exhaust process. Gas will be captured by inclusions and became bigger than others. Once the gas becomes bigger, it comes out from molten metal, and barsterd on the top surface. This equipment can be measure theisbursted pressure change by vaccum gage.

Put the steel cup with 100g of aluminum molten metal.

Sample and inspection screan samples
In case of lots of inclusions: Sample surface is bursted and recognize lots of gas contamination.
破裂の多いサンプル 破裂の多い測定画面
In case of low inclusion: Sample Surface is flat nad smooth, and no recognission of bubble.

測定画面 Bubble bursterd volume measured by Volcester can be shown how many burst happen during inspection. This remaining bubble an be a cause of pinehole defect.
Bubble bursted volume and density of solidification sample has strong colleration asattached left image.

Measurement Data:
Type of Molten Metal: ADC12
Inspection Temperature about 620 degree C
Inspection periods: 180 sec.

2. Characteristic of Volcester

Total gas measurement system
ガス量測定画面 Volcester can conduct a total gas measurement.
During inspection, it can be measure the total gas volume exhausted from sample.

Touch panel operation
Operator can follow the required step following the step indicated on the touch panel.
All the inspected data will be storaged into CF Card.
