Pouring

Unheated, pressurized pouring system POUROMAT type OCU

As far as design goes, the POUROMAT corresponds to the PRESSPOUR® furnace, however, with the feed and discharge siphon ending in a bottom drain. The POUROMAT is designed in versions with total capacities ranging between 2.400 kg to 7.000 kg. In contrast to the heated system the POUROMAT can be completely emptied even at downtimes.

Advantages and features:

Easy installation on foundry floor without pit
The flat design of the vessel allows the POUROMAT to be installed on the foundry floor without the need for a pit, even if low moulds are used (upper edge not lower than 1 m). Its modular substructure allows it to be adjusted to the particular pouring height.

Rapid vessel changeover
The furnace vessel of the POUROMAT is mounted on a support structure in such way that a rapid changeover of the vessel within one or two hours is possible.

Benefits for magnesium-treated metals
The feed and discharge siphons are designed with short easily accessible channels so the build-ups can be mechanically removed without difficulty. For sphericall iron production, inert gas is admitted to the POUROMAT.

Great flexibility due to small residue
The shape of the furnace vessel and its refractory lining have been designed for the best possible ratio between useful and nominal capacity, so that despite the use of a siphon system, only a relatively small quantity of iron remains after the furnace has been completely discharged. Because the bottom channel connects the siphons, the hell is reduced to minimum.

Minimal heat losses
The temperature drop of the melt in the POUROMAT is 1 to 1,5 K/min, depending on the degree of filling.

Monitoring and operational safety
The continuous and automatic monitoring of the pouring system guarantees safe operation at all times.

Simple operation, maintenance and assembly
At the design stage, the main emphasis was placed on simple operation and maintenance of the system. Detailed instructions make possible an efficient and quick training of technical personnel for assembly, operation and troubleshooting.
